How should I cook my Applegate Hot Dogs?
There are several ways to heat our fully cooked Applegate Hot Dogs:
Grill: Place your hot dog over medium heat and turn as it starts to brown, about 2-3 minutes on each side. Total heating time is about 8-12 minutes. When grilling frozen hot dogs, heating times will be slightly higher.
Steam: Use a Dutch oven fitted with a steamer rack. Fill the pan with water just below the rack. Bring water to a boil, and then reduce to low heat. Add your hot dogs to the steamer basket. Cover tightly and steam 5-7 minutes or until heated through.
Boil: In a pot, bring water to a boil. Reduce heat and carefully add hot dogs. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Frozen hot dogs will take a little longer to heat through.
Microwave: Though not recommended, the microwave oven should only be used if no other heating method is available. Microwaves vary in power and features, so experimenting with heating times may be needed. Thaw hot dogs before placing on a microwave safe plate. Use a fork to poke holes in it. Heat in 30 second intervals until desired temperature.
