Hot Dogs for Breakfast!

About: Huge nerd! I don't have a lot of spare time, but I have good ideas. Trying to work on a few instructables right now, but as I said, no time. That, and it seems that when I do have time, I don't have the righ...

I discovered this delicious combination of ingredients while on a family camping trip. I woke up one morning and discovered that we had no breakfast food whatsoever. What we did have though, was leftover hot dog buns, quickly ripening bananas, a jar of peanut butter, and some cashew-raisin trail mix.

Using my amazing creativity and ingenuity(not), I quickly realized that I could make a banana-hot dog bun-peanut butter-trail mix thing!

A.K.A. Hot dog for breakfast.

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Ingredients

I didn't really bother with measuring out the tablespoon of every last raisin or however that works, but you can get the general idea of stuff when you see the pictures. Anyways, you'll need:

- 1 Banana

- 1 Hot Dog Bun

- Some Peanut Butter

- Some Raisins

- Some Cashews (or whatever kind of nuts you got laying around)

- And Some Honey

Step 2: Step 1: Mayo, I Guess?

This is kind of an easy recipe, if you can call it that. I don't even have much to say here.

Open up the hot dog bun and spread peanut butter on one side.

Boom. Done. Exploded your mind.

Next step!

Step 3: Step 2: Chopped Onions, Maybe?

Again, not much to say.

Take some raisins and sprinkle them on the peanut butter side.

Okeedokee then, on to step 3!

Step 4: Step 3: Hot Dog And... Relish? This Seems Kind of Relish-y.

Okay, now the fun part! I get to say stuff!

Peel the banana and plop it down in the bun. I mean, don't like, drop it, or anything. Just put the banana in the bun.

I kind of put two steps into one here, so try to keep up, I know it's been super difficult so far, but it's about to get even harder, so pay attention.

Take some cashews and start cracking them in half. This just makes it easier to put on the bun, and easier to eat. But don't just go around cracking them in half all willy-nilly though, you have to crack them in half longways. Some of them already have a little slit on them, some don't. Regardless, take both your thumbnails and put them in the middle of the top of the inside of the cashew. Complicated, right? I'm sorry I didn't get any pictures of that, but it takes two hands and I didn't have anyone to take the picture for me.

Somebody needs to make an instructable for that. Something to hold the camera (or tablet, in my case) and take the picture on command. That would be super-useful. If anyone does that, they should give me credit for the idea.

Bye! See you in Step Four!

Step 5: Step 4: Ketchup. This Is Definitely Ketchup.

Okay! Almost done!

Take the honey and drizzle it across the banana in a zig-zag motion. Try to not get it on the bun, because that'll just make a sticky mess when you try to pick it up.

To the last little comment thing that I don't know what it's called! Ending maybe?

Step 6: The End!

Good job guys (and gals)! We made a Hot Dog for Breakfast! It's a pretty healthy-ish meal, lots of protien, and some fruit. And this version, with the honey, isn't dry like the prototype camping version. All-in-all a good breakfast. It's also really fun, great for kids.

I think this is a vegetarian meal, but I'm not sure if it's vegan. Maybe the honey isn't because that comes from bees, but I don't know.

Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy your Hot Dogs!
