Hotdogs….who wants a hotdog? You will want them over and over again once you try these little gems. This recipe for New York Style Hot Dogs is super simple to make and great for a simple lunch or dinner.

In this grown up version of a kids classic, we get to enjoy an elevated version of the dog with some cooked onions and kraut, which makes it good for you, right? Well, the onions and kraut are, anyway 🙂

I’ve only been to New York once, but you know I had to try a hotdog from a food cart and this recipe represents how I remember it tasting. To a New Yorker, I probably don’t have it right, but we all enjoy them in this house. I hope you enjoy them.

HELPFUL HINTS FOR NEW YORK STYLE HOT DOGS

I use the sauerkraut from Costco, or a bagged sauerkraut from the deli/cooler section.

I use the microwave to warm my hotdog buns, but only for 10 to 15 seconds, otherwise bread gets chewy in the microwave.

In my humble opinion, hotdogs are best grilled, but for this recipe they are best cooked in a pan on the stove. Simply heat a pan on medium-high heat add the hotdogs and half a cup to a full cup of water. How much water you use depends on how many you are cooking and how big the pan is. Cook until the water is gone and then continue cooking to toast each side just a little.

You’ll need a large pan for this recipe. I just got this pan and I am a little in love with it!!!

Also a sharp knife for slicing those onions. This is mine everyday knife. It’s a perfect fit for me.
