Oscar Mayer Angus Hot Dogs are not your grandmother’s hot dogs. They aren’t your mother’s either for that matter. What they are is absolutely delicious. My favorite ways to fix them:
- I cut them into thirds, wrap bacon around each, securing with a toothpick. Then I place them all into my crock pot (slow cooker). I drizzle brown sugar over the whole shebang and cook on low until they’re just perfect. Delicious!
- I “grill” the hot dogs on my cast iron grill skillet. It leaves the marks I cherish and the taste is out of this world. Naturally, you have to heat the buns and complete the masterpiece with chopped onions and mustard.
If you’ve never tried Angus hot dogs, try them asap. You’re going to love these guys.
