Grilled Spiral Franks

Grilled Spiral Franks

Chef Duran — of The Food Network's Ham on the Street and TLC's Ultimate Cake Off — developed  a fun grilled frank recipe that it puts a spin on run of the mill hotdogs. Chef Durans says "It’s such a simple recipe, but never fails to impress my guests.  Thread beef franks through skewers and then slice down the length of each frank, while rotating the skewer for a perfect spiral cut." Due to its simplicty and visual appeal, the grilled spiral franks recipe is easily one of the best grilled recipes.

Deliver Ingredients


  • Grilling Spray
  • 4 beef franks
  • 4 bamboo skewers, soaked
  • 4 hot dog rolls
  • 1/4 Cup natural ketchup
  • 4 Teaspoons spicy brown mustard

To make spiral cuts with a paring knife, carefully cut down side of each frank while rotating skewer the entire length of the frank. Slightly pull frank apart to expose spiral shape.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
