Easy Skillet Potatoes and Hot Dogs

Pin It

Have you ever been tubing? Like down a river? If not, I'd suggest driving to your local river, filling up a cooler, hopping in a tube, and drifting away. It's such a relaxing experience, and if you go with great people it makes it even that much better.

That's exactly what we did last weekend. Chris and I went with two other couples to the Shenandoah River where we had all rented a cabin. We grilled, played games, drank and made s'mores at night, and during the day we went tubing. The whole excursion took about 5 hours, but it was totally worth it. If you do go, though, make sure you don't tie your tubes together like we did. Because more than likely, there will be a part where the water gets a little rough. If you're like me and head straight for a rock, it's hard to push yourself away with four other tubes attached to you. Hence the huge bruise currently on my back side.

Anyways, Chris had bought the food that we grilled, and we took home all our leftovers. Since I didn't want them to go to waste, I made this childhood meal that my mom would often make us for dinner. It takes no time at all and is delicious. The potatoes get nice and crispy, and the hot dogs get a slight char on them, giving them a great flavor. If you're looking for a easy, fast (and child pleasing) weeknight meal, this is your recipe! We also used to eat this on a bun with American cheese...yum. Enjoy!

Printable Recipe


  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 Russet potatoes
  • 6 hot dogs

Peel potatoes and cut each one in half. Cut each half into thin, half-circle pieces. Blot with a paper towel to dry off excess water.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add potatoes and cook, flipping occasionally. Cook until crispy on the outside and cooked through, about 10-15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut hot dogs into bite-size pieces. Once potatoes are done cooking, add the hot dogs to the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes longer or until hot dogs are lightly browned and cooked through.

Eat by itself or serve on a bun with American cheese.
