Kitchen Talk: Spiral Cut Your Hot Dogs


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!

Serve your spiral hot dogs with Baked Beans, and be sure to try our Blonde Texas Sheet Cake or Picnic Cake!

  3. how neat is this! my dad used to cut our hotdogs so they flared out at the edges, and it’s something i’ll always remember.

  4. […] Who doesn’t go through the summer without having a barbecue? My son got married on Aug. 17th and with the many family and friends that were here to celebrate his upcoming marital bliss, (marital bliss….is that an oxymoron?  Not even going there!) a barbecue seemed just in order.  What a better time than to try out making these Spiral Hot Dogs that I pinned on Pinterest from caramelpotatoescom!
