Now the chickens have come home to roost. With a bag of free hot dogs—used. Yeah, you know it is time to go down to social services and reapply for SNAP benefits when someone offers you a bunch of used hot dogs and you take them. The good news is that they also had extra buns. Or rolls. I think that is some sort of eastern thing…like Maine or something.
Which brings us to cooking them. Or re-cooking. Or, really, re-re-cooking. Usually I'd boil hot dogs in a shallow pan, but that doesn't seem like a good idea since they've been split. The microwave is for lazy people, which sounds like me, but doesn't do much for the texture. So that leaves me with the broiler (too much wasted heat for one hot dog) or throwing the flippity floppity in a pan. And that really is the best way to get some browning going.
