As you know, we are all about some hot dogs over here.
However, clean-up has always been an absolute bear. Especially when using cheesy hot dogs (our favorite): The cheese melts and the hot dogs attach themselves to the cookie sheet with a fierce vengeance. You have to soak, and scrape, and soak some more, then MAYBE the cookie sheet will be clean enough to put in the dishwasher.
Tonight Kevin (clean-up crew ) asked if I could please do something to make the hot dogs NOT stick to the pan. So, I put a tiny bit of olive oil on the cookie sheet, just a thin layer, spreading it around with my fingers.
Voila!! No messy clean-up - they came off the sheet using just my hands...AND the hot dogs are perfectly done - nice and crispy!
Maybe everyone already knew this but me, but in case someone didn't: OLIVE OIL on the cookie sheet. Just a tiny bit.

Thanks for the tip. I don't know about anyone else but I think it is important and it's a tip that I will use.

I have been forbidden from making them because "they make Theo's breath stink." (Just between us, I think the poop is worse for his breath.) But when I was using them, I always sprinkled garlic powder on them and then microwaved the living bejeezus out of them in between two damp paper towels. They weren't crispy, but more rubbery. Theo would do anything for them.
I do the same as Nathan... they're definitely rubbery. LOL! Henery only gets this extra special treat when we're at shows.
I never thought to do them in the oven! Ha!
I use Pam the spray for that sticking so we have just gotten on a Hotdog kick here but I fry them how do you cook them in the oven?? and BTW this is the first time Buddy has tasted a HDog I have now created a HOTDOG MONSTER
I would think the sheen of olive oil would also make them a little more aerodynamic for further distances while spitting....
I use parchment paper for sticky things like that -
Ditto. I tend to use parchment paper on the baking tray for anything I shove in the oven actually, even under a pie, to catch the drips.Originally Posted by Mirabella

The Renolds Release aluminum foil works great too I normally use it when baking most things. I normally nuke the hot dogs too but I'll have to try the oven. Zeus actually prefers them uncooked but they are so messy that way.
i wonder if i am the only one who boils the hotdogs. i cut them into slices and quarter them. i'm stingy, too.
