1. Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Take a baking sheet and lay down tin foil. Spray a light layer of cooking spray.
3. Place hotdogs on baking sheet. Make sure that they do not touch.
4. Whisk an egg, and lightly coat the top of each hotdog blanket. 
5. In a small bowl, mix poppy seeds, sesame seeds, dried onion, dried garlic and salt. 
6. Sprinkle seasonings on top of hotdog blankets.
