The summer heat is here in full force. I’m talking some days have already been near 100 degrees! Today I am sharing Char-broiled Hot Dogs made in the Ninja Foodi.

It’s going to be a long hot summer. That will not stop me from making Char-broiled Hot dogs. However, they won’t be on the traditional BBQ.

The past Memorial Day was one of those scorching hot days. My husband had already picked up all the fixin’s for a traditional cookout. Our favorite hot dogs are called Sahlen’s. Now available here at Publix. These hot dogs are originally from Buffalo, New York. A bit of a char is a must-have on these hot dogs. Some prefer them lightly grilled though. We love them slightly blackened.

This is where the Ninja Foodi saved the day. My husband was a bit hesitant. We never made these hot dogs any other way but the BBQ. I had no fear, the Foodi was near.

All seven of these somewhat substantial hot dogs fit on the Ninja Foodi rack.

In less than 15 minutes I had them on our fine chinette and ready to eat.

Needless to say, my husband was happy and really impressed with the outcome. They tasted absolutely delicious. Hope you try these Char-broiled Hot Dogs in the Ninja Foodi.
