Notes

  • We put 20 hot dogs in each of our 2.5 qt crocks, but you can place as many that will fit. The original recipe from Gooseberry Patch's Busy Day Slow Cooking says up to 60, but you could even do more depending on the size of your slow cooker.
  • We like to place hot dogs in the two outside slow cookers and then place a topping or dip in the center for parties (see the bottom of this post for the center crock recipe!). This is just perfect for backyard BBQs and parties.
  • You can cook this on low for 3-4 hours or high for 1-2. Once cooked through, I would flip your slow cooker to a warm setting for serving.

  • As with any of our recipes, carb counts, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly. As a result, your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish. The auto-calculation is just an automated estimate and should NOT be used for specific dietary needs.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline. Recipes should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
