This Simple Hack Will Change the Way You Cook Hot Dogs, Forever

Landscaped Hotdogs

There’s so many ways one can cook a hot dog. Whether you fry it, throw it on the grill, boil, or even microwave, the end result still sits happily in your stomach. Though at times it, more often than I’d care to admit, they’ll end up cold in the middle. I mean, I’ll still eat it but warm definitely tastes better.

It seems like there’s a more thorough way to cook your franks so everything is evenly nice and hot. Pretty much all you need to pull off this hack is a barbecue skewer and a knife.


First you penetrate the weenie with your wooden skewer.


Taking a knife, you slice around the hot dog in a spiral motion until you reach the end of the slab of meat.


Because you used the wooden skewer, the hot dogs should not fall apart once you’re done cutting. Now, all you have to do is throw them on the grill or a frying pan and cook them thoroughly. Personally, I enjoy mine slightly charred.


The end result is a dog with nooks and crannies you can add your choice of condiments into. Sliced bread is a viable substitute for hot dog buns or even a hard taco shell.

    Interesting technique for sure but if you use a quality natural casing dog youre going to ruin it using this method as all the wonderful juices will be lost.

    First you melt my brain with this crazy spiral-hot-dog-of-deliciousness and then you finish it off with the idea of a Hard Taco Shell instead of a bun?! My mind is officially blown.
