5 ingredients or less

I'm sure that several of you Works for me Wednesday Posters have some fantastic recipes and I can't wait to read a few but 5 ingredients or less, oh my! I had such a hard time thinking of a recipe. I don't know why, I'm a firm believer that the simplest things taste the best. I know I've made meals that only had a few ingredients but I couldn't think of anything fabulous.

I think I may need this book to give me some ideas when it comes to simple cooking.

I did think of something as I couldn't miss a Works for me Wednesday post

We like hot dogs-I know not the healthiest and certainly not gourmet but it's well rounded when served with baked beans and a veggie like corn on the cob. hot dogs (Hebrew National-were snobs when it comes to hot dogs)
2. store bought buns (I've made my own but I have yet to master a perfect hot dog bun)
3. mustard
4. relish
5. sauerkraut

If we don't feel like grilling I broil the hot dogs, it only takes a couple of minutes, I also throw the buns under the broiler for a few seconds so they become warm toasty.
Hot dogs are such a tasty, quick, and cheap meal. I feel so American when eating a hot dog (silly I know.) If I plan on making hot dogs I usually buy some Coca Cola the real stuff in a red can, It breaks my no high-fructose corn syrup rule but sometimes you just have to have an ice cold can of Coke with your hot dog, that's all there to it.
