    Someone asked on another food website:

    "What do you do with "Hot Dog Water"?

    You know, the water that you use to boil hot dogs? Seems like such a waste to just dump it."



    Here are some of the funny answers:


    - If you have some rice and any leftover hot dogs, how about hot dog risotto?

    -Cook lobsters in it.

    -If there is a drought, accumulate it with other water(s) and use it to flush the toilet

    -Maybe you could freeze it and put hot dog ice cubes in Bloody Marys.

    -You could parboil the hot dogs and then use the liquid for split pea soup and add sliced hot dogs at the last.

    -You could use it to thin canned chili.

    -Savory shaved ice.

    -Use it as a mixer with vodka ... vodka goes well with pretty much anything.

    -Bottle it & sell it as dog perfume?

    -I'd use it for the same thing I use canned Tuna juice when squeezed of the tuna....put it over the dogs food at night.

    -Save up ketchup packets from restaurants and add to hot dog water to make tomato soup. Also save up some saltine packets from restaurants to garnish the tomato soup.

    -Take one tablespoon of hot dog water and call the doctor in the morning.

    -Hot dog water microwave risotto with crumbled potato chips on top?

    -Hot dog water to make instant mashed potatoes. Cover chopped hot dogs with instant mashed potatoes to make hot dog shepherds pie.

    -Or, maybe you could have it blessed, making it Holy Hot Dog Water, and then sell it on Ebay.

    -Maybe it could be used as "au jus" for a grilled cheese sandwich?

    -Hot dog water ramen.

    -If you collect enough hot dog water and dry it you can make hot dog bouillon cubes. Of course the hot dog bouillon cubes would be a poor substitute for the real thing.

    -The worlds 2nd shortest book: "Things to do with left over hot dog water." The worlds shortest book is of course: "Things to do with left over rice water."

    -Wait a minute! I think we have a new Jones Soda Flavor. Hot Dog Water. They could sell it in a six pack with Lima Bean water, Vienna Sausage juice, Tuna water, Hard Boiled Egg water and Sourdough hooch.

    -If ya' have some really ugly kids, use it as shampoo to get the dogs to play with them.

    Or fry them whole or split in a skillet.

    I'll bet it's been a decade since I've done anything but grill hot dogs.

    Though a grilled hot dog is definitely a good thing too. icon_smile.gif

    The only time I really boil hot dogs is with Mac n cheese so I just toss the hot dogs in with the noodles and boil it up that way...then I water my house plants with cooking water as I call it... I have some massive Aloe and spider plants! icon_smile.gif
