    Dimes & dollars – sliced hotdogs baked in a dish with baked beans. No idea why it was called that (70s kid). My mom often added extra chopped onion & you could opt to top with cheese on your plate.

      Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing!

    We need a Haus Dog in Northern Va. Their food looks delicious!

    We’re having crispy dogs!
    One hot dog, 1/4 cheese stick (quartered long ways), in a corn tortillia then air fry for 4 mins

      Ooh! That sounds good too! I may try that! Thanks for commenting!

    Free hot dogs (gourmet) at the Meijer gas station with in app coupon today only! We already ate ours and they are actually a fancy smoked sausage. I got cheddar and husband got German style! Try them!

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      YUM! Thanks for the heads up, Jane!

    If you have a Thornton’s gas station in your area, check your app for a free hot dog. I believe they have been giving one free hot dog daily since last Thursday. I believe today is the last day for free hot dogs from Thornton’s.
