I’ve decided Sundays will be for archives. I’ll bring back some old posts that were favorites.
This was originally from last year. We love spiral hot dogs more than regular hot dogs in this house. I thought in honor of Labor Day next weekend, this would be a great repost to share for a Labor Day of grilling. Enjoy!
I’m sure this is a totally weird tutorial, but my family loves them so thought I’d share (eek…that’s a bad runon sentence). My husband stole one of my dowel rods for making korker bows. Then, I found him slicing hotdogs into spirals on it. Then, he went out and cooked them on the grill. It was a last minute 10 o’clock at night right before our vacation quick and easy dinner. As someone who is not a big fan of hotdogs…these came out delicious! So I thought I’d share.
Step 1 – Stick the hotdogs on some kind of skewer. Then slice around the hot dog in a spiral. Since it’s on the skewer, you can slice all the way through to the skewer. We now use metal skewers. (Sorry this picture is blurry. I got the bright idea to share our spiral delights in the middle of his slicing.)
Here is finished spiraled hotdogs. Ready for grilling!
Step 2 – Grill those suckers! It takes just a minute or two because they are spiraled and cook fast. Be careful with turning them and picking them up because they are delicate.
Step 3 – Voila! Finished hotdog — prepare as desired.
My kids love these things, except the baby – she’s a little freaked out by them. I’m not sure why. But these taste so much better than regular ol’ hotdogs. I think it’s the grilling of the entire thing inside and out, maybe. It plumps it up and brings out the flavor all the way around.

These look adorable! My girls are grown (20 and 25 years old) but just wait until I surprise them with these. I think they would also be great for little girl birthday party food. I found you on Tasty Tuesdays. Love this idea. Thanks for sharing.
What a fun idea!!! My kids would love this 🙂
I’m definitely giving this a try because I love regular hot dogs, so I want to try an even better hot dog version. Thanks for sharing at Inspire Us Thursday on Organized 31.
