Can hot dogs be eaten raw?

Not that I would eat one raw (they are dicey enough cooked!) but I just told my son that it's okay to eat one raw and wanted to make sure I was right. (He won't eat one raw)

It came up b/c we just got a grill, and he's been grilling dinner for us. I was explaining last night, when he was grilling steak, how important it is to wash off the plate that had the uncooked meat on it, or to get a new plate.

He must have actually listened; as he went out with the hot dogs, he said that he would come back in to wash off the plate. I said he didn't really have to, as hot dogs were technically okay the way they are (if gross).

Was I right?

I'd still wash the plate, just cause I think hot dog juice is gross....but yes, they are already cooked when you buy them. You are just re-heating when you grill them.

I don't eat hot dogs anymore (ick ick ick ), but ate them all the time when I was a kid. And yep, used to eat them straight out of the fridge without cooking them. I'm sure somebody will say that's unhealthy, but I don't remember ever getting sick. I'm pretty sure they're already cooked when you buy them.

I think if you buy the big brand packaged kind at the grocery store you should fine-----My family has eaten many this way without complication on camping trips. If you buy the fancy kind in natural casings you should probably cook those first.

Yep - no one has ever eaten a raw hot dog because they're cooked when you buy them. All you do is get them warm. I love hot dogs!

My own loved them cold out of the fridge, but I asked my Dr. first.

Yah, I thought all hot dogs were already cooked before they are sold. You just warm them up to make them more appealing.

Growing up my best friend used to eat them right out of the package. I thought it was weird and only ate them cooked. She never got sick from it.

I used to eat them straight out of the package. Then when I became pregnant with ds #1 my mom told me some gross story (that she probably made up) to get me to quit. It worked!

Yep, fully cooked already. No worries. (Except for all the additives, but that's another issue altogether.)

Hot Dog-Mock Ham Salad
Old 07-13-2010, 08:57 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #14

I grew up eating a Mock ham salad that my mother made. It was yummy! She has long since passed on, but I still make the salad. The only change I made was that I use Turkey dogs, because I don't care for the beef dogs.

Here is the recipe for those of you that may want to try it. You will need to have a food processor or meet grinder.

1 pk of rinsed turkey dogs
1/4 peeled yellow onion
1medium sized dill pickle
1 slice of bread (the heal is great for this, because you grind it.)

Process or grind the above ingredients together

Add about 1/2 C of mayo
2 T mustard

1 t Mortins Seasoning salt
1/2 t cellary salt

Mix well and make yummy summer sandwich.
