These slow cooker hot dogs are super easy to do, and you can cook a lot of them at once. It’s great if you need to prepare these hot dogs in bulk.

Slow Cooker Hot Dogs

Hot dogs bars are always a great hit at parties, especially if there is a wide range of condiments. They go great with some delicious sauces and of course hot dog buns. Just some of the condiments that you can have with it include caramelized onion, tomato sauce, ketchup, guacamole, mustard and so much more.

Using a homemade chili is excellent if you want to make some chili dogs. Just pour the chili over the top of the hot dogs and cook for a few hours. At the end of cooking, you will have delicious hot dogs in a hearty chili.

You can cook up to sixty hot dogs in the slow cooker and still have them turn out well. You can place them upright if you need to squeeze as many in as possible.

Hot Dogs

Cooking for a crowd is always tricky but having multiple slow cookers make it a lot easier. For example, you can have the hot dogs cooking in one and a side such as baby potatoes cooking in another slow cooker. There are a ton of great combinations that you’re able to do.

These are so easy to make, but I still put together a video. The video will quickly show you how to prepare the hot dogs and what they should look like afterward. If you like the video, then please be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Cooking Tips

  • If you want the hot dogs to be cooking evenly, then I highly recommend that you rotate them halfway through cooking. This rotation will help the top ones cook at the same speed as the bottom.
  • Avoid adding water to the slow cooker as this may cause the hotdogs to split if they’re cooked for too long.
  • Use tongs to remove the hot dogs as forks will piece the hot dogs and cause some of the juice to leak out. This leakage may cause the hot dogs to go a bit dry.
