Chili Dogs in a Lettuce Bun (Low Carb)

I'm all about saving on unnecessary calories and eating low carb these days.  I was so excited when I realized I could make my chili dog recipe low carb friendly by switching out the bun for a few baby romaine lettuce leaves.  The romaine lettuce gives a perfect shape for the hot dog and to make it less messy so I tripled up on the lettuce for the bun.  I also kept all the filling from falling out by taking an extra leaf and placing it on top of the hot dog to make it seal in all the fixings.  My kids munched on their traditional bread hot dog buns and I indulged (wink) with my low carb lettuce option.  I love when that can happen.

  1. looks so so tempting...I wish I could taste it....

  2. Wow, what a great idea! I use lettuce in place of taco shells, but never thought of it replacing a hot dog bun, I will try it!

  3. I guess after everyone went crazy on the low fat diet, and ate extra carbs, it was natural for everyone to the blame the carbs. But overall a low fat diet is still better than low carbs, and exercise is better than diet.

  4. Fourth on the list of advantages is that rubber boots especially those that are used as dog snow boots are inexpensive. dog shoes

  5. Meet with several potential candidates, to see how they interact with your pet and how your pet feels about them. Find out a little about their background, and what relevant experience they have with dogs.
