Place hotdogs to frying pan. Add just enough water to cover the bottom of the pan. Cover and cook hotdogs on medium heat for 7-8 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more water if it cooks off before the time is up. Drain off remaining water, and add 2 tbsp butter. Fry hotdogs until golden brown.

Cheddar Chips

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
  • Optional:  grated parmesan, spices, etc.

Instructions:

Line a microwave safe plate or baking dish with parchment. Sprinkle up to a cup of cheddar cheese on the plate, use less cheese for a thinner chip. Sprinkle desired spices, garlic, or parmesan over the cheese. Microwave until cheese become more flexible and less wet. The cheese will just begin to turn a dark orange, but it should not blacken! It should take about 3-5 min, depending on microwave wattage. If desired, carefully dab excess grease off of chips using a paper towel. While still slightly warm, cut cheese chips into rectangular pieces. Alternatively, wait until it cools and break them into more rustic shapes.
