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. (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.
