It’s official! Fall is here! I’m enjoying the cooler days and waiting for the trees to burst into bright Autumn colors.
What do you love about fall? Pumpkins… bonfires… sweaters… football? When I think about the perfect fall meal, it’s really simple: hot dogs! Not just any old hot dog… the BEST hotdogs ever. #KHGameTime is here!
Football fans everywhere will love a perfect, crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, all-beef hotdog… just the right thing to eat while watching the big game. (I’ll teach you how to make them like that in a future post!)
My daughter and I took a trip to Walmart this week for our hotdog dinner ingredients. She enjoyed a little sample of some sweet fall treats!
When preparing for a fall tailgate or football watching party, you can find all of the food and supplies you need at Walmart. I’d serve foods that are easy to prepare for family and friends: chips, cookies, hamburgers, sloppy joes, tortilla chips and salsa, and of course hot dogs.
You absolutely cannot make the perfect hotdog without the perfect bun: KINGS HAWAIIAN® Hotdog Buns are the winner!
Have you tried the KINGS HAWAIIAN® buns? They’re just so delicious! The light sweetness of these fresh, soft buns are the best compliment to the flavor of a juicy hotdog. I’m excited to share some
When enjoying a really good hotdog, I like to have a little stack of homemade French fries. Who wouldn’t, right?!
I often cut the potatoes hours before I plan to cook them. This gives them time to soak in the secret ingredient… sugar water!
A double fry produces the best, crispy fries:
5 large baking potatoes
1/3 cup sugar
Vegetable or peanut oil for frying
1. Wash and peel the potatoes. Slice them into thin strips to make fries.
2. Fill a large bowl halfway with cold water. Stir in the sugar. Pour the fries into the bowl. Cover the bowl and set aside for two hours or up to 8 hours in the refrigerator.
3. Remove the fries from the water and rinse well with cold water. Place on a towel and pat dry.
4. Fill a large pot with oil to at least 1 1/2 inches high. Heat over medium-high heat.
5. Fry the potatoes in small batches for 2-4 minutes until they are cooked through (the fries will be limp but not browned at all). Place cooked fries on a paper towel and set aside until you’re ready for the second fry. You can fry them again immediately or a couple of hours later.
6. Heat the oil again to medium-high heat and fry the fries for the second time; this time until golden brown (2-4 minutes).
7. Place cooked fries on a paper towel to drain off excess oil. Salt to taste and serve hot.
Makes 3 servings.
