Hotdogs have become an all-time favorite snack across the globe. The origin of hotdog (or hot dog) can be traced back to the 13th century in Germany. In the Philippines, it’s also one of the staple breakfast items. It was my favorite baon back in grade school.
We usually have them fried, grilled, on a stick, or in a bun. But there are other ways to prepare and cook hotdogs. Here are some recipe hacks for our well-loved hotdogs that we found on YouTube.
Note: You are not limited to using the regular red hotdogs. You can use your favorite kind of hotdogs — beef, chicken, or vegetarian.
