OK, catering for nephews party at the weekend. I decided to do hotdogs as a change to the normal sandwich offering but the venue only has a microwave.

So, I need to make 20 quickly. Any tips?

Thanks flowers

If they're the canned type you could place in a covered dish with some hot water and pulse a little until heated through...

They need to be cooked in water/brine otherwise they explode in the microwave.

Yes stick them in water but do it in short bursts of 30 seconds at a time. Too much at once and they will burst or go disgusting.

You can also just cover them with boiling water if you have a kettle?

Thanks. There will be a kettle but I have limited time to make them and need to get them all out in one go.

Personally I prefer the packet hot dog, but if am not a connoisseur. Any tips on which would be best / easier?

If you get the packs of Herta ones you can pierce the packaging and then put the whole thing in the microwave for about 45 seconds.
Do 2 packs at a time ( 8 I think) for a bit longer

Thanks Hoppinggreen. I was hoping there was a far easier solution.

So, I will do hotdogs in rolls. What else? Crisps? Sandwiches for anyone not liking hotdogs?

To be honest I probably wouldn't do any hot food.
Cheese, ham, jam sarnies, crisps, bits of cheese, fruit would do just as well.
