I Made “Scrambled Egg Hot Dogs”! “What The Friday”?!?!? My Food Mashup Asks: “What Did I Do To Those Eggs?”

“What The Friday” Was I Thinking?!?!?!

OK, calm down for a moment. Doesn’t this video of two eggs bubbling away on the stove make you happy? We all love eggs, don’t we? And we all know that on Friday I like to share the “head-shaking, beard-scratching” wonders of the world around me.

In this case, I decided to make that “WTF” moment all by myself – with an unlikely food mashup!

Hot Dogs And Eggs! A “Mashup” For The Ages!

You see? “Hot Dogs And Eggs” doesn’t sound nearly as twisted as “Scrambled Egg Hot Dogs” – and it all began because I had two leftover eggs I wanted to cook up for dinner – oh, and I had a few “other” things sitting around as well:

You can see I found myself with a couple of eggs, a few hot dogs, the buns that house them, a few slices of provolone cheese and a bulb of garlic…before you ask me how they all ended up on the same plate, let’s look at a traditional American breakfast:

You see? Eggs – many times with cheese included, some sort of meat, and toasted bread….so what I was up to was right along those same lines – just with a bit of a twist!

And you will notice I haven’t shown you the end result yet, because I want us to take this journey together! Let’s mashup a meal!

I began by searing the hot dogs…I didn’t think I needed to grill them – I just wanted a flavorful sear on them…

Next, I put them in their buns, and folded the provolone over them…I gave them a quick :!5 in the microwave and they were ready to top!

I used the same pan for the eggs, so that’s a nice bit of “hot dog oil” infused in the eggs, along with salt and pepper.

Well, you know what happened next: I topped my hot dogs with the scrambled eggs – now it was time to bite down on this food mashup!

As you can see, the buns actually hold the eggs better than a plate would! And, if you zoom in enough, you don’t even know what’s going on in there!

Of course, now it was time to stop talking and start eating!

So, What’s The Verdict?

If you’ve stayed this long, then you must want to know how it tasted, and the answer is simple:


I chose not to use the garlic – while I love it, I just thought it would overpower the eggs – especially since the hot dogs had a nice charred flavor. That said, the eggs were delicious, the hot dogs tasty, and the provolone brought the two flavors together well – I could have toasted the buns for more of a crusty pop, but that said, I’d make “Scrambled Egg Hot Dogs” again!

I want to hear what you think, but don’t forget that I’ve shared many traditional egg recipes with you as well, like this one:

That’s right, I made “Baked Eggs” from the terrific “Chocolate For Breakfast Cookbook and shared the recipe with you – they are delicious and you can make them yourself by clicking here:


Now, you know that I enjoy a good hot dog as well, and these ones from a street market in Seoul South Korea had some extra flavor wrapped around them!

Yes, they were cooked in a spicy/sweet Korean sauce – and bacon! You can see my five favorite hot dogs by clicking here:

  4. Since I’m not very into eggs, I’m not sure how this would go down. Maybe not for me, but I appreciate the creativity here! I’m glad you enjoyed!

  6. Looks good to me! In fact I have hotdogs in the fridge right now. Maybe I should try for tomorrow’s breakfast!?

  7. Those look goooooood! I guess I make a similar thing – sometimes I make a ‘breakfast flatbread’ (I’ve given up white bread) with egg, sausage, and bacon. It’s tasty! Also love baked eggs – have you ever tried them baked in portobellos before? If you line the mushrooms with bacon strips before cracking the egg into them they’re even better.

  8. Looks yummy! Personally, I like to shred a potato or two, throw in some cooked meat (usually sausage, sometime ground beef, bison, or deer), a handful of onion and minced garlic… Fry it up, mix in a little sour cream and shredded cheese and bake. 425 for 30-40 min. That’s my solution to left over eggs.


  9. That mashup sounds delicious John and I would definitely give it a try.

  12. I would definitely eat that concoction, John. It looks delicious!
    It is not unknown for me to enjoy a toasted frankfurter sandwich with mustard, and add cheddar cheese too.
    I don’t have a photo of it though. Next time, I must try it with eggs included! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.
