How Long to Boil Hot Dogs
Hot dogs are one of the quickest and easiest meals you can whip up in ten minutes or less. Most hot dog brands will include cooking instructions that dictate the cooking time on their packaging. Hot dogs that are thawed will only need to boil for about 5 minutes. If you're boiling the hot dogs from frozen or cooking jumbo hot dogs, it will take more like 10 ten minutes to cook. When the hot dog is soft inside when pierced, and when the skin begins to redden, darken, or split, they're ready to eat.
