The Best Way to Cook Hot Dogs

There are millions of ways to cook hot dogs from “on a stick over a fire” to making an “Air fryer” hot dog and “Microwave Hot Dog“.

But the quickest way, especially if you are making a bunch of them, is to make pressure cooker hot dogs.

Since hot dogs are already precooked and what you really want to do is to heat them back up, you can’t beat a quick run through the pressure cooker.

What you WON’T want to do is to try to cook just one in the pressure cooker, that won’t work at all. You need enough to help your pressure cooker to build up steam.

Tips and Tricks

  • Always use all beef hot dogs, you’ll find that they taste better and are often nearly the same price as other kinds of hot dogs.
  • We enjoy Nathans or Ballpark Weenies the best.
  • Look at your pack of hot dogs and count how many there are in the package. You’ll find that these days, it isn’t a given that there will be 8 in the package and you want to make sure that you have enough buns.
  • Think about toppings for your hot dogs. You’ll want to consider ketchup, mayo, mustard, slaw, chili, onions, cheese or other toppings that might be unique to your area.
  • Consider your buns as well. If you look in the bread section, you can sometimes find buns with a slit on the top instead of the side and then makes holding the weenie and the toppings much easier!
  • The broth in the pressure cooker helps the pressure cooker to come to the correct pressure and it is what cooks the dogs. As it does so, the steam enters the hot dogs and adds flavor. That’s why we use broth or beer and why we add seasonings.
  • You can add a bit of cayenne if you like spicy hot dogs.

PRO TIP: If you like a sweeter hot dog, you can add a chopped up apple, 1 cup of apple juice, 1/2 tsp of garlic powder and 1/2 tsp onion powder. Makes for a lovely flavor.

A Verse to Share

I think a lot about how easy it is to just stop what I’m doing and go sit down to rest. Take a minute to scroll through my phone, look at photos, visit social media or read an article that I might enjoy. After-all, I’m not young anymore, I have aches and pains and I get tired easily.

Honestly, the work around my home is never ending. If I worked until it was all done, I would never stop working.

Have you ever read the letter from Paul to the Thessalonians? Apparently, they liked to relax too and Paul had tried to set a good example for them when he was visiting. It’s interesting what he has to say, I would recommend reading the entire passage from the beginning. This is where the commonly quoted verse, “a man who doesn’t work won’t eat” comes from.

2 Thessalonians 3:6

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us.
