  1. Spray cold grate of gas grill with grilling spray. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Meanwhile, carefully thread franks on skewers. To make spiral cut with paring knife, carefully cut down side of each frank while rotating skewer the entire length of the frank. Slightly pull frank apart to expose spiral shape.
  2. Grill 5 minutes or until franks are hot, turning occasionally. Remove franks from skewers. Place franks in rolls; add ketchup and mustard.

Cook's Tip

Soak bamboo skewers in water at least 30 minutes before using. Serve Alexia® Crinkle Cut Sweet Potato Fries with the grilled franks.

to Mickie it clearly says remove franks from the skewers learn to read before you criticize and to bear any normal person puts ketchup on a hot dog the recepie is to tell you how to make it spiral cut not how to make a filet mignon so quit complainging and shut up. this overall idea seems cool and worth a try. not a ketchup or french fry advertisement if you dont like ketchup dont put it on, its that simple you dont need to post about it. thanks for the great idea hebrew national i will give it a shot

I find it easier to lay a whole batch of dogs on a cutting board close together, make angled slices across all the dogs at once. Roll them all a 1/4 turn and slice again, repeat this till all 4 side are shallow sliced and TADA a whole batch of spiral cut dogs ready to be grilled to perfection. I usually sprinkle with my favorite seasoning after slicing is complete and roll the dogs back and forth forcing the seasoning into the slices.

Hebrew National is definitely the best hot dog, but ketchup.....not on any hot dog!!!!!!!!!! If Hebrew National answers to a higher power (as their commercials once said), they will remove the idea of ketchup on a hot dog!!! That being said, this is not a recipe, but an advertisement to sell the fries and appease children (who like ketchup on their hot dogs!!

Saw Martha Stewart do skewered hot dogs on the Today Show 7/3/14. She removed the skewer after cutting the first hot dog and used the same one for each dog. They looked great and no chewy skewer. Low rating because leaving skewers in the hot dogs is just dangerous.

Spray is for baking, not the frypan or the grill. Oil the grill with cooking oil on a cloth or paper towel.
