You know, the water that you use to boil hot dogs (assuming you boil them)?
Seems like such a waste to just dump it.
I'm thinking Hot Dog Water might be good for making oatmeal, grits, or even cooking things like pasta and rice maybe?
What about using it as part of a brine solution? I'd imagine you could let it cool, add some more salt and aromatics of your choosing, and use it to brine pork chops or loin. It's a natural match, right? Pork on pork!
Along the same lines, could you use it as poaching liquid? Poached eggs in Hot Dog Water?
Do you use Hot Dog Water?
Or is that too (how do you say?) gauche for you?
