Hasselback Hot Dogs

A fun way to make hot dogs that get extra crispy and are even better at holding toppings.

Ingredients

8
all-beef, 1/4-pound hot dogs
Chop sticks, for cutting
8
hot dog buns, toasted

Sriracha Ketchup:

1/4
cup ketchup
1
tablespoon sriracha chili sauce

Sweet Mustard Sauce:

1/4
cup whole grain mustard
1
tablespoon brown sugar

Greek Yogurt Sauce:

1/2
cup Greek yogurt
1/4
cup minced cucumber
1
tablespoon lemon juice
Pinch of salt

Directions

  • 1 Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • 2 To make Hasselback hot dogs, place a single hot dog between two chopsticks. Use a small paring knife to cut slits down the hot dog every 1/4-inch. The chopsticks will stop you from cutting all the way through the hot dogs.
  • 3 Grill hot dogs normally for 4-5 minutes per side until they are crispy and curled. Toast hot dog buns on grill at the same time as the hot dogs.
  • 4 Serve hot dogs with any topping, such as Sriracha Ketchup, Sweet Mustard Sauce or Greek Yogurt Sauce. To make the sauces, just mix ingredients and top on your hot dog.

Eat better hot dogs with this easy grilling trick!

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Finally! It’s grilling time. What better way to spend a lazy weekend afternoon then lighting up the grill and having a few friends over for a lazy BBQ?


If you want to up your grilling game a bit this year, check out this fun and easy way to grill your hot dogs: hasselback them!

Grilling hasselback hot dogs means more surface area to get crispy and delicious and lots of tiny crevices to hold any type of sauce you choose.

Here’s how to do it!

The only potential pitfall with hasselback hot dogs is if you accidentally cut all the way through the hot dog. Nobody wants half a hot dog!

To stop from cutting the hot dog all the way through, nestle it between two chopsticks.

The chopsticks will stop the knife from cutting all the way through and make sure all your cuts are even. See how that works?!

This is a simple mix of Greek yogurt, diced cucumber, lemon, and salt. It has a bright and fresh flavor. Think of it like a crunchy, healthy mayo option!


Sweet Mustard Sauce

For the sweet and savory lover, this is a simple mix of whole-grain mustard and brown sugar. You can squirt it on the dog or brush it on as a glaze while grilling.


Sriracha Ketchup

OKAY… back to the grill. Toss the hot dogs on and let them cook over medium-high heat for a few minutes per side. The dogs will curl a bit as they grill. That’s totally fine. They’ll straighten out later on the bun!
