Perfect for a fun lunch or for snacking. All you need are either cocktail wieners or regular hot-dogs cut in 2. Serve them on a plate or in a Bento box with sticky rice balls, cut vegetables, grapes, and your kids favourite dipping sauce and watch your kids enjoy a fun lunch!

Lesters’ Tips and Tricks

Slow cooker ‘Steamies’

You want to prepare a snack bar feast at home? It has never been easier. Take out your crock pot and let it do all the work. Put the hot-dogs in crock pot, cover and start on high temperature setting, DO NOT ADD WATER, cook 2 to 3 hours, time enough to get everything else ready. Reduce heat to minimum to keep warm until time to serve.
