I thought I’d share another one of my meal break downs as a Sunday Snack Edition. The Beer Bread Dog Dishes, are scrumptious bowls of beer bread with hot dogs split in two, and topped with a sprinkling of gooey cheese. I actually made this recipe as a six serving meal, but I’ll also share a way to make it into a party or tailgate appetizer. For those of you who love beer bread, hotdogs, and cheese this recipe is definitely for you! I envisioned the recipe as one that is a go to for a nice autumn day with beautiful colors, and for those football fans, something easy and delicious for your weekend football festivities.
Beer Bread Dog Dish
1 box Beer Bread
1 12 oz can Beer (your choice)
6 Hot Dogs
3/4 cup shredded Cheese (your choice, I used Colby Jack)
6 petite au gratin dishes
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit, grease bottom of au gratin dishes and set aside.
2. Mix beer bread mix with can of beer. Stir together until moist, you want it to stay lumpy.
3. Spoon even parts of bread dough into the bottom of the six au gratin dishes.
4. Split hot dogs in half, length wise. Place two halves of hot dogs flat side down into the dough in each dish.
5. Sprinkle an 1/8 cup of cheese onto each dish.
6. Bake fro 20-25 minutes, or until bread is done.
*If you don’t have petite au gratin dishes, you could use style of individual serving dish you have or simply create a large hot dish and split into six individual servings.

Beer Bread – $1.29 for a box
Beer – $8.99 for a 12 pack
Hot Dogs – $0.79 for a pack of 8
Cheese – $0.99 for an 8 oz package
total cost = $12.06 (plus tax)
We used entire box, so the total cost for mix = $1.29
Serving Size – 1 can
Cost/serving – $8.99 / 12 = $0.75
Serving Size – 1 hot dog
Cost/Serving – $0.79 / 8 = $0.10
Cost for Recipe – $0.10 * 6 = $0.60
Serving Size – 1/4 cup
Cost/serving – $0.99 / 8 = $0.12
Cost for Recipe – $0.12 * 3 = $0.36
Total for Recipe = $3.00
Cost per Serving – $3.00 / 6 = $0.50
A perfect and super easy fall main dish to slip into your recipe boxes as a go to in a pinch or for a fun recipe!
*Snack Edition Remix*
After creating the recipe I decided that it would be very simple to recreate it as an appetizer. Perfect for the go or your party this weekend.
Simply make recipe as is, but instead of putting in au gratin dishes, put dough, dogs, and cheese into muffin tins. You should get about 19 total appetizer muffins. Cost could change if you choose to put less hot dog in each muffin, but other than that total cost for recipe should stay the same. You’ll get a $0.16 price tag per appetizer.
