I love that you tagged it "hot gods" :)
So, there's grilling, which is probably yummiest but getting a bit chilly out for it! Grill pans would be a great sub here. If you have a gas stove, you can also stick one on a skewer or fondue fork and roast it over the open flame.
If you're not above microwaving, you can actually cook the dog in the bun, wrapped in a moist paper towel and poked with a fork a couple time.
Last, but certainly not least, you can "butterfly" (yes, cut the hot dog in half) it and fry it up in some peanut oil or butter.
Thanks for the answer!!! I will try and see.
the microwave hot dogs tasted like this:
- Put the sausage in bread
- Wrap around with a paper towel kitchen roll
- 30 micro seconds for each sausage
warm, crusty bread, adisfrutar!
probá los panchos al microndas de esta forma:
- pones la salchicha dentro del pan
- envolves todo con una servilleta de papel del rollo de cocina
- 30 segundos de micro por cada salchica
pan calentito y crocante, adisfrutar!!
I like to cook franks for all they're worth. When you've pan fried the outsides a nice brown, split them open the long way and fry the cut sides until everything is nice and crispy. Blot with paper towels. This has the effect of rendering out a lot of fat and adding more flavor. Of course, you don't have to cook them at all -- they're already precooked.

I'm a disciple of the Chicago red hot (dragged through the garden) as opposed to the NYC "Dirt Water Dog", so I will echo the advice on grilling. However, as a dog lover I'm adamently against splitting them. You want a hot dog that snaps when you bite into it. And a ketchup bottle should be nowhere in sight except maybe out in the trash.
Grilling is the best way to go, but in a pinch pan frying works just fine. I like to put a little bit of beer in the pan for moisture and flavor! I agree with pierino when it comes to splitting, better to keep them whole and juicy!
Chops is a trusted home cook.
The broiler also works. I prefer them split when cooking; with ketchup & mustard.
