Surprise Barbecue Hot Dogs


Unwrap these quick and easy baked hot dogs to reveal a luscious filling of sweet onion sauce and melted Velveeta(R) cheese.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¾ cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 hot dogs
  • ½ (8 ounce) package processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®), cubed, or to taste
  • 4 hot dog buns
  • 4 sheets aluminum foil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in onion and brown sugar and cook until onion is soft but not yet brown, about 5 minutes. Add ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce; bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  3. Cut a slit through each hot dog and fill with cubes of cheese food. Place dogs in buns and cover meat with onion sauce, about 3 tablespoons each. Wrap in aluminum foil.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until piping hot throughout, about 15 minutes.
