Before heading out for a weekend picnic, I place hot dogs in a thermos and cover them with boiling water. When it’s time to eat, the hot dogs are piping hot. Don’t forget the buns! —Sandra Miller, Lexington, Kentucky
What do folks eat at a ball game? Hot dogs, of course! For our baseball theme party, I jazzed them up with an easy homemade barbecue sauce and a tangy relish that's become a family tradition. I make up a supply when our garden's booming with zucchini.—Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
I grew up in a family of eight kids, and we never complained if Mom made these terrific hot dogs often for birthday parties and other family gatherings. You'll find that kids and grown-ups devour these...good thing they're easy to make.
