Cowboy Hot Dogs & CMT Summer of Music

Grilled hot dogs topped with honey barbecue baked beans, caramelized onions, crumbled bacon, and cheddar - jack cheese.

Grilled or baked hot dogs are delicious, especially at a barbecue or camp out. Let's face it plain old ketchup, mustard and relish can be a bit boring, so in our house we love our hot dogs served with various toppings. A few of our favorites are Texas Style Chili Dogs, Coney Dogs, New York Dogs and Chicago Dogs.  

My preferred method for cooking hot dogs is definitely grilled or on a stick and cooked over an open campfire. Yum there's just something about a a perfectly roasted hot dog between a lightly toasted bun. Well, recently I teamed up with Bar-S to share a recipe in celebration of the CMT Summer of Music Sweepstakes.

When I was deciding on a recipe to share "cowboys" came to mind, so today I'm sharing my recipe for Cowboy Hot Dogs using Bar-S Premium Beef Franks. My version of a cowboy dog is a grilled hot in between a lightly toasted bun and topped with barbecue baked beans, caramelized onions, crumbled bacon and cheddar-jack cheese. It doesn't get much better than that folks.

Stove Top Skillet Pizza

No need to heat up the house with this easy Stove Top Skillet Pizza. You can have dinner from stove to table in 30 minutes. 
Pizza is one of those meals that will pretty much please everyone! I make homemade pizza year round, but during the summer it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. We don't dare crank up the oven, so most times my husband and I just grill our pizza outside, especially if we're feeding a crowd.  

We live in Texas and our summers are definitely hot and humid, so I really don't like standing outside in 100+ degrees, dripping with sweat assembling pizzas. Making homemade pizza should be a simple and not time consuming or complicated.

Grandma's Banana Pudding (From Scratch)

A homemade stove top vanilla pudding poured over vanilla wafers, fresh cut bananas and topped with additional crushed wafers.  

Any family gathering, get-together or cookout wouldn't be complete without a big bowl of homemade banana pudding! This holds true at my house and my mother in laws house. Southern Banana Pudding  is my families favorite old fashioned dessert, but my oldest son prefers banana pudding without the meringue topping.  

If you were raised in the south then you pretty much had the meringue version of banana pudding. This recipe is also listed on every box of Nilla Wafers, so it's been around for quite some time. I prefer to use Nilla Wafers versus other brands, but if I can't find them Mothers brand vanilla wafers is my second choice.
