Last Night’s Dinner: Hot Dogs

There are many things that hot dogs are not. They are not glamorous, expensive, or time consuming to prepare. What they are is a good thing to keep in the refrigerator for those nights when unexpected things come up and you need a quick and cheap dinner.

The secret to good hot dogs is in how you prepare them. Some people put them on the grill, and that is great if you only have them on for a couple of minutes and you are doing something else on there too. Some people put them in the microwave. We don’t have a working microwave (Hubby doesn’t like them) so that’s out for me. We usually boil them – or I should really say that Hubby usually boils them. By adding a little bit of minced garlic to the water you can add a little bit of flavor to the hot dogs before you ever add any condiments.

For Hubby – more minced garlic and lots of ketchup. For me – American cheese, hamburger dill pickle slices, and yellow mustard.

In one word – yum.
