    I have found so many delicious hot dog recipes since using this site and this one is no exception..It is fantastic, even with the boring veggie dogs i use to save on fat grams! One bit of advise. If you are like me and are feeling lazy on a monday night after a long day at work, do not try to save time by heating the cream cheese in the microwave. Who knew cream cheese could explode!  -  29 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am from Chicago & love my Chicago dogs but these were a good change. They sounded so gross, but I was intriqued by the reviews. I hate onions and cream cheese seems so wrong on a hot dog, but they were really good! I had to fight with my mom to convince her to try it, since she was so repelled by the thought. Once she did, she agreed these were great!  -  30 Jul 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    How can you possibly improve on a delicious dog? Make this recipe and find out! The warm cream cheese was so delicious with the mustard and kraut! I used Saeuerkraut Hot Dog Topping from this site as a garnish and it was delicious. Thank you, I will forever eat my hotdogs the Seattle way!  -  19 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
