How to Cook Hot Dogs

You may not think you need any info on how to cook hot dogs, but you never know. How long to cook hot dogs is a common question, and we have the answer. (It depends on whether you’re using a stove or a grill.) So think about planning a Memorial Day or July 4th party complete with hot dog recipes—there’s no better way to celebrate than with a picnic featuring great food.

How long to cook hot dogs

OSCAR MAYER Franks or Wieners can be cooked in just minutes on the grill. Heat the grill to medium heat, then grill the franks 7 to 9 min. or until heated through, turning occasionally. For light varieties, grill just 5 to 7 min. or until heated through, turning occasionally.

To enjoy the perfect, juicy hot dog, it is important to get it hot enough to eat but not so hot that you either burn it or cook it too long so that it bursts.

If your grill has an upper rack, it’s a great place to keep the grilled hot dogs warm until ready to serve.

To cook hot dogs on the stove top, add up to 10 hot dogs to saucepan of boiling water. Return to boil; cover. Remove from heat; let stand 7 min. or until hot dogs are heated through.

OSCAR MAYER Franks or Wieners can also be cooked in the microwave. To cook, place 1 hot dog on paper towel. Microwave on HIGH 15 to 20 sec. or until heated through.
