  1. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off grease, and reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the sloppy joe sauce, and bring to a simmer. Add the hot dogs, and cook until heated through.
  2. Place hot dogs into buns and cover with the sloppy joe mixture. Eat with a fork, or use just a little bit of the sauce and eat like a regular hot dog.

This was great! We're not big sloppy-joe fans, so I used a can of Wolf Brand Chili instead of the other stuff, and it was SO GOOD! I chopped the weinies and boiled them, first, then added them to a pot of chili, cooked through, and spooned the glop down over toasted hot dog buns. I covered it with cheese and put the whole thing under the broiler. Wrapped leftovers in foil and just reaheated them in the oven, they were great too!

Not bad if you are a sloppy joe fan. I am so so on sloppy joe's but decided to try this anyways and it's a good twist but I prefer regular old chili dogs :)

This is very good and easy, but I have some TIPS...I actually sliced the hot dogs and put them in the mixture. Then I just took 1 bun and opened it and put the mixture inside. It ends up being a knife and fork meal anyway, so why not right? I also added a tablespoon of hot sauce and a tablespoon of ketchup.

What a fun dish to make! Instead of canned sloppy joe sauce I used M's Sloppy Joe Sauce recipe found on this site. Baked for about 10 minutes with cheese on top and it was a hit with my 2 yo and husband so this one goes into the rotation.

These were good. Much better than your average chili dog. As recommended by other reviewrs I added chopped onions and shredded cheese and baked at 350 for 10 minutes until cheese melted. I topped it off with some crumbled bacon and we loved it. Yummy!!

Last minute dinner last night. I don't keep Manwich on hand so I just made my own sloppy joe sauce (variation on Ruby Drive Sloppy Joe recipe which is also on this site). The boys thought this was okay. I liked it because a) hot dogs are almost always cheap and the boys will eat them without arguing and b) this was quick for me to make. Four stars as is, five the more personal you make it. NOTE: This needs cheese. Keep that in mind when you make it to top it with your favorite cheese.

These are good, I added cheese to the top and they were a hit.

I'm giving it 5 stars because it is in fact really good (that is, if you like the occasional hot dog or sloppy joe). Of course, use lean beef and good quality hot dogs for better taste.
