Did Hebrew National hot dog for Super Bowl. DH's choice, my dilemma on how to prepare and keep warm a lot of hot dogs with out destroying them. Found your recipe and decided it sounded pretty good to me. They were the best dogs ever! It brought the best flavor out and were juicey, gently browned. Not drowned in water all sad, splitting open; wrinkled. Heating the buns in the crock pot is a great idea too. Just had the dog/buns, (deli type) at the end of the food line, 3 buns at a time. When down to the last bun, I'd slip in a couple more in under the last one left. Asked the guys how they honestly liked them, and received lots of good grunts/thumbs all had food stuffed in their mouths enjoying the game. Crazy fun. Darn good way to make a hot dog. Thank you so much for posting. This is the only way I will ever make a hot dog again! :)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -6 hot dogs
  • hot dog bun


  1. Prepare hot dogs in slow cooker using NO water. Just drop the dogs (or knockwurst, or polish sausage) and cook them in their own juices on high for 1-2 hours. In about hour the dogs will begin to "brown" wherever thy touch the sides of the pot. A few minutes before serving, warm up some hot dog buns in the pot. This is a winning combination!
