How to cook hot dog sausages?
Everyone has their favourite way of preparing hot dog sausages. Whether you prefer your hot dogs simmered, fried or microwaved, you surely don’t want to overcook them.
Below you will find estimated time of preparation, depending on the type of sausages. Remember that the exact time of cooking may vary from brand to brand, so it’s always best to follow the preparation instructions provided on the back of the package.
