How fun is this?? Here’s a fabulous way make your hot dogs the center of attention for the 4th of July or anytime you’re grilling this summer. My son saw these spiral-cut hot dogs and really wanted to try them . . . we did and I have to report we love them. The spiral cut creates more surface area giving you more crunchy, caramelized meat while creating nice little pockets for your sauces and condiments- Plus, they are just so much more fun than regular dogs!
Here’s how to do it:
Just insert a wooden skewer through the center of your hot dog. Hold a knife at a slight angle and cut down to the skewer as you roll the hot dog away from you. That’s it!
Remove the wooden skewer and place the spiral-cut hot dogs directly on the grill and watch them get nice and crispy! The favorite at our house is to baste them with barbecue sauce once them get nice and brown. The spiral cuts let the bbq sauce ooze down into the dog . . . . mmmmm.
Since you’ve got the grill fired up, put the buns on there and get them nice and toasty, then add your favorite toppings! A fast and easy way to add a little fun to your cookout.
Note: Just use the regular sized hot dogs – once you spiral them they fit in the bun perfectly!
