Spiralize Your Hot Dogs and Never Look Back
Try this new twist on hot dogs our executive food editor swears by.
For several years now, I've been telling anyone who would listen that spiralized hot dogs are a revelation. Sounds dramatic, doesn't it? Well, it's true. Cutting a hot dog into a corkscrew shape gives you more crispy bits, which are the best part! Those grooves also create nooks for catching your favorite toppings. All you need is a skewer and a sharp small knife. So what are you waiting for?
Insert a skewer lengthwise through a hot dog. (If the skewer pops out the side, just pull it back out and start again.)
Place the hot dog on a work surface. Using a sharp small knife, cut down to the skewer at an angle while rolling the hot dog away from you.
Remove the skewer and transfer the hot dog to a grill. Cook until crispy.
