Mini hotdogs recipe

Mini hotdogs are perfect party fare and you can have these made for the kids in no time. Here we give you tips on taking these to the park for a party!

Prep Time:

10 minutes

Cook Time:

10 minutes


  • 2 pkts of bake at home rolls (12 rolls total)
  • 12 mini frankfurts
  • squeezy bottle tomato sauce
  • squeezy bottle mild mustard


Bake rolls as per package directions. Split down the center.
Place frankfurts into cold water and gently warm without bringing to the boil.
Drain and place inside buns.
Squeeze sauce over just before serving.


  • I like to put a saucer in the pan to keep the frankfurts immersed because it is when they hit the cold air that they split.
  • If you are going to the park for a picnic you can pour boiling water over the uncooked frankfurts in a thermos and let them sit while you re-boil the kettle. Then drain and cover with boiling water again and seal until you are ready to serve.
  • I then place the split rolls in a plastic bag and heat them in the microwave for 1-2 minutes and then wrap the bag in tea towel to keep warm.
  • When you get to the park you have warm rolls with hot frankfurts in the thermos and you can serve them up easily. Don’t forget the paper plates and napkins.


Pizza Roll-Up Bento Lunch

This easy pizza-inspired roll-up is a kid-pleaser. Make crunchy vegetables more appealing by selecting colorful varieties like orange and purple cauliflower—and don't forget the dip! Keep 'em smiling with watermelon cut into fun shapes with cookie cutters. Along with a few cookies for desert!
You can also do a Ham-and-Cheese Roll up by laying out one or 2 pieces of ham, add a slice of cheese on top of the ham. Then put one more slice of ham on top to hold the cheese in place. Then starting at one side, roll it up. You can serve these whole or cut them to make them more bite-size!
