One Pan Hot Dog Stir Fry Recipe

Yesterday I realized that my hot dogs were well beyond their sell by date. They looked, smelled and felt exactly the same as before so I needed to use them before any of those things changed. Since I had no buns, I decided to make a one pan meal with the hot dogs.

Following is the recipe for hot dog stir fry. It’s colorful, flavorful and quick to prepare.

Plus, there’s only one pan to wash.

    How To Make Hot Dog Stir Fry Recipe

    This dish is easy to make and seems to please all ages, including the kids.

  • 1) Wash and then pierce the top of some potatoes with a fork. Microwave the potatoes about 3-5 minutes just until slightly soft and then slice them (skins & all) into thin slices.


  • 2) Wash and chop a green pepper and a few slices of yellow onion.


  • 3) Chop hot dogs at a slant to about 1 inch pieces.


  • 4) Preheat a large pan and add about 2 Tablespoons of Olive Oil. You may need to add more to the pan later if things start to stick.


  • 5) Place all items in the pan and cook over medium-high heat – stirring every now and then so they brown but do not burn.


  • 6) Sprinkle with a little salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste.


  • 7) Serve when all items are soft and some are well browned.

    EatByDate Note

    To find out how long hot dogs last visit our hot dog page. If you’re the really observant type, you might have noticed that I’ve gone even beyond the EatByDate recommendation with this product. We don’t recommend to do that because it is not always the case, but these are a quality brand of hot dog that actually remained fine for two months beyond their date. But always remember that individual results may vary. Other hot dogs may have started spoiling by this point and be unsafe to consume.
