F&W's Justin Chapple demonstrates how to make a spriral hot dog.
[MUSIC] I'm Just Chapple from Food and Wine's Test Kitchen. Join me as I demonstrate mad genius tips. What if you could take something that's already super delicious and super fun like a hot dog and make it even more delicious and more fun? Well, I've got a mad genius tip that's gonna show you how to do that. So what we're gonna use to get us started is this. It's a wooden skewer. We're going to stick the skewer lengthwise from one end of the hot dog to the other. Just like that. It almost looks like you're gonna put this on the campfire, but you're not because you're gonna turn it into a spiral cut hot dog. We're gonna take a sharp paring knife and you're going to make a cut on the angle until you hit the wooden skewer. Once you've cut to the wooden skewer, you're going to rotate your hot dog 90 degrees and you're going to continue to cut and then you're. Gonna continue to roll and continue to cut until you get to the other end of the hot dog. The best part is when you take that hot dog off the skewer. Just like that, the coolest hot dog in the world, the spiral cut hot dog. So now we're gonna pop these on a grill, cook them up. [MUSIC] You can hear them sizzling away. All the spiraled edges are getting nice and crisp Gonna get us great texture and there gonna be super delicious. [MUSIC] I think they're ready so I'm gonna take em off and slide into a bun. I'm gonna top it with some yellow mustard. It's gonna be delicious. [MUSIC] [BLANK_AUDIO]
