I’ve been wanting to make these hot dogs from Plain Chicken for a long time. Memorial Day seemed like the perfect excuse to try them out. Barbequing is a requirement for us and hot dogs and hamburgers are always on the menu. I’ve heard of many different kinds of topping that you can put on your hot dog but I never considered putting something on them before the grilling process. Here’s what we thought of them if your looking to do something new this weekend.
When prepping the hot dogs you make slits down the side. Make sure that these are more horizontal and not vertical. I did some with one row of slits and some with two. It didn’t seem to make a difference on flavor, so save yourself the trouble and only make one.
Make sure and oil your grill before putting the hot dogs on, otherwise the slits that you’ve cut will stick and tear off when grilling. Yes that is personal experience talking.
These were super easy to make. You start by putting the ingredients into a gallon sized bag, cut your hot dogs and then let them marinate for at least twenty minutes. After that, it’s grilling time! You could even prep them the day before so they’re ready to go when you need them.
When grilling these hot dogs they smell amazing! Like, everyone in the neighborhood will smell the scent wafting over from your house and wish that they had been invited over for the fun. If you’re having a party and want to get people excited for the food, cook these and they will be lining up.
When you actually try the hot dogs, they are really good, but the flavors were not as strong as I had hoped for. Mild really. I was disappointed that it wasn’t an “in your face flavor” but I’ve decided that the strong scent while they’re cooking outweighs the mild flavor and I’ll definitely be making them again!
