- Slice up the hot dogs into thick pieces.
- Beat the eggs.
- Set aside until ready to use.
Choose quality eggs that are not cracked. Brown eggs, white eggs, whatever you like are fine to use in this recipe.
- Heat oil in a large skillet.
- Add the hot dog slices and cook over medium heat for a few minutes before adding the eggs.

Hot dogs can be salty. Taste first before adding salt.

Do you add milk to scrambled eggs?
There are some people who say you should NOT add milk to eggs because it makes them runny and they burn more easily. While others say that milk makes them fluffy. Either with or without milk, this recipe works.
Place any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days in the fridge.
Store any leftovers in a freezer safe bag. Remove as much air as possible and store for up to 5 days. Thaw and reheat in the microwave for 2 minutes, or on the stove for 4-5 minutes.
