Boiling hotdogs. How difficult can it be?

My son's birthday party was last weekend. I decided to serve hotdogs since they are so easy to prepare and a change from the usual pizza. I prefer my hotdogs grilled. However, my husband was out of town and I didn't want to have to mess with the grill so I decided it would be easiest to just boil them. I put the water on the stove, but I didn't wait for the water to come to a rolling boil before I put the hotdogs in the water. Once it came to a boil, I put the lid on and set the timer for 4 minutes. When  I took the lid off, my hotdogs looked like this:

 Ugh! I was so frustrated with myself. Obviously they were in the water too long. Thankfully I was not serving adults, but only kids. I just put the busted side down on the bun, and the kids had no idea.

I hope this gives you some encouragement  and maybe a good laugh! I know you are capable of boiling hotdogs. I mean really, how difficult can it be?
