Being the inventors of CURL A DOG instant hot dog spiralizing system, we're all about spiral cut hot dogs. They simply taste better because more of the meat is exposed to the cooking process, AND more of the meat is available to decorate w condiments. We're convinced! And the only thing that tastes better than a standard Hebrew National hot dog is a Hebrew National hot dog that's been spiralized, cooked, and then decorated w all the goodies.

I've never eaten a Hebrew National hotdog that needed anything more then yellow mustard,chopped onion and a good bun. BEST EVER !!!!

The recipe looks tastey and fun! All of the reviewers who commented on the skewer being "chewy" must either be joking or idiots. The instructions clearly state to remove the skewer. And, the spiral hot dog pictured on the bun has no skewer in it. Anyone with common sense would know to remove the skewer before eating the hot dog! I love Hebrew National Franks. They're the only franks I'll eat or feed to my family. And yes, there will be Hunt's ketchup available for those who enjoy it on their hot dog. We live in America where we have the right to put ketchup on our hot dogs if we so choose. Don't panic mustard fans, I always serve a variety of mustards with hot dogs as well: stoneground, spicy brown, Chipotle, classic French's - to name a few. If you choose to be a mustard purist at my house, you can be. If you like your dog loaded, I supply diced onion, relishes, and saurkraut too. It's all about your personal "pursuit of happiness". God bless America!

Instead of ketchup - use dill pickle relish and sliced onions - and mustard, of course. Yum!! Hebrew National are the best hot dogs. The very best.

Skewering the hot dogs to make a spiral dog is not explained properly. Insert a metal skewer into the center of the hot dog. Take a knife and make a spiral cut from top to bottom so the blade of the knife touches the skewer as you cut. Go back to the top of the hot dog and rotate it 1/3 of the way. Make another spiral cut trying to stay the same 1/3 distance away from the first cut. Repeat this step one more time. Remove the skewer and put the hotdog on the grill. Rotate it so that it gets a nice char on all those exposed edges as it cooks. This spiral cut will also completely expose the inside of the hot dog allowing the mustard or (Heaven forbid, ketchup) along with any toppings to get inside the dog instead of falling out of the sandwich bun. MANGIA!

Great idea. The grand kids loved it as did the adults. I used metal skewers. They slide out easier although they heat up on the grill.Use a light touch with the knife to avoid damaging the cutting edge. May dull the blade a little but that's why God gave us knife steels.
