Glazed Hot Dogs and Rice

A glazed hot dog dipped with rice is VERY tasty. We’re not kidding, it’s a delicious recipe that kids and adults truly love! This is not hot dog fried rice which you often see but, instead, a dish that resembles the Korean rice bowls (that my family loves!) with your favorite toppings waiting for you to mix up. 

This Pantry Budget Rescue recipe comes in well under our $15 budget guideline unless, of course, you go a bit overboard on the toppings.

easy hot dogs and rice

Y'all, there are a few reasons you need to get this recipe on your menu:

  • Kids love anything with hotdogs, use this dish to introduce them to new veggies to try.
  • Done in 15 minutes!! And even faster if you use frozen rice!
  • An empty the fridge recipe. You know, the recipe you use when you have a veggie here and a veggie there to use up. 

Key Ingredients:

  • Beef Hotdogs. I prefer to use all-beef hot dogs but use your favorite kind!
  • Rice. You'll want to start your rice before doing anything else because the hot dogs take very little time to make. Tip: grab a bag of already prepared rice from the frozen section!
  • Soy Sauce. If you prefer, try using hoisin or fish sauce for a different flavor.
  • Sesame Oil.
  • Brown Sugar. You can skip the brown sugar if you like however, your sauce won't be quite as sticky.

Method for making Hot Dogs and Rice:

  1. Heat sesame oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the sliced pieces of hot dog and sauté until nicely browned.
  2. Add the garlic and saute just until fragrant.
  3. Pour the sauce into the center of the pan and stir into the hot dogs.
  4. Assemble the rice bowls with the cooked rice, glazed hot dogs, and toppings like green onions, green pepper, cabbage kimchi, or carrots...whatever veggies you have on hand. 


  • Although this dish comes together really fast you can prep ahead by slicing the hot dogs and veggies several days ahead and you can cook your rice and store it until ready to use. 
  • Hotdogs and rice can be frozen for up to 3 months. Simply thaw in the fridge and then heat in the microwave.
  • Store any leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days. As with any rice dish, make sure you get leftovers put away and cooled down as quickly as you can.

We have had this twice in the last few weeks, in my house, and I didn't make this either of those college-son did once and my husband did the other time. This dish is really simple, straightforward, and great for even beginning cooks. 

This is a great recipe for kids to make and gain cooking confidence! Let them pick the veggies they want to serve with it and give them free rein.

Recipe Tester Katie says:

I also added raw carrots, cucumbers, and sliced sweet peppers. Top with sriracha for a little more heat and made it taste and look more like a Korean dish. 

I’ve seen beef used in this type of dish but not hot dogs. It was a cheaper alternative which was yummy. 

I thought this was a very tasty sauce! It’s very simple so will be approachable to most. I think the sauce should be doubled. I also think it would really benefit from some ginger! Overall: ⅘ stars
