Reviews for Tummy Dogs
"Didn't care for this recipe, won't bother with it again."
"My daughter does not care for cheese. So for her hot dog I just skip the cheese and do everything else the same..I also make them on the stove top.."
"Since finding this recipe, I have tried them in various combinations. The bacon adds a wonderful extra flavor to these dogs. Thanks for sharing Myra!"
