If you love steamed, ‘ballpark’ style hot dogs then throw them in your slow cooker! Perfect for feeding a crowd, this 1-ingredient recipe couldn’t get any easier.
Yes I went there. HOT DOGS. Laugh if you want to but these hot dogs are really good. These come out tasting like steamed hot dogs which personally I love. You know, the type of hot dogs you get at a baseball stadium. By the way, this is a common slow cooker ‘recipe’ or more so, method of cooking hot dogs. I didn’t come up with this brilliant idea myself.
While I used fancy wagyu hot dogs, that is 100% not necessary. In the past I have used both Hebrew National and FarmerJohn and they tasted just as good as the wagyu beef ones did. Cook as little or as many hot dogs as you like or as you can fit into your slow cooker.
You can lay them down or stand them up. Just make sure you get hot dogs that fit the size of your slow cooker. This is a great recipe to feed big crowds; a large 6-quart slow cooker can hold up to 60!
I like to toss the hot dogs around halfway through cooking to ensure they steam evenly but that’s not a necessary step, more recommended.
