Use different hot dogs or sausages. I have made this recipe with the full-sized smokies, as well as the hot dogs with cheese.

Tips for Cooking Hot Dogs in the Oven
- Cut slits into the hot dogs to increase the surface area, this way the hot dogs brown more.
- About half-way through cooking give the pan a shake to rotate the hot dogs, this way they brown on all sides.
- Line the baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup.
- Cook the hot dogs in a savory sauce for lots of flavor.
- This is a great way to cook up a lot of hot dogs at once.
