1 hot dog bread
1/4 tablespoon American mustard
4 slices Swiss cheese
6 dill pickles
2 tablespoon butter
How to make Classic Hot Dog
To prepare the delicious hot dogs, begin with preheating a sandwich press or a large cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high. Add hot dog sausages, sliced and halved and ham and cook, turning one time, until lightly charred and cooked completely, which may take about 4 minutes for the hot dogs and 1 minute for the ham. Set aside on a plate.
Next, lay bread on a platform, open both the sides up and spread both halves with mustard and top with Swiss cheese slices. Add hot dog sausages, pickles, and ham to the bottom half of each bun. Gently press.
Now, spread softened butter all over the outside of the buns and return to press, skillet, or griddle, flipping one time, until the outside is golden and the cheese is melted. This will take up to 5 minutes. If you are using a cast-iron skillet or grill pan, use a second pan to press the bun. Slice the prepared hot dogs in half and serve.
