How to Make Hot Dogs in a Thermos
Tuna sandwiches and PB and J are boring. Make yourself or your kids a hot lunch on the go with a thermos.
You will need
- Hot dog buns
- Hot dogs
- Small containers
- Tea kettle
- Lunch box or bag
- Restaurant condiment packets (optional)
Step 1 Prepare condiments Pour condiments, like ketchup, relish, mustard, and cheese into small, airtight containers. Then put buns into a zip top plastic bag.
Save condiment packets from restaurants instead of packaging them yourself.
Step 2 Heat water Boil water in the tea kettle.
Step 3 Pour water into thermos Place hot dogs into your thermos and pour the boiling water into it, submerging the hot dogs. Then close the lid tightly.
Step 4 Put into lunch bag Place the condiments, buns, and thermos into a lunchbox or bag and head out. The thermos will keep the hot dogs nice and warm until lunchtime.
Harry M. Stevens created the hot dog in 1900.
