National Hot Dog Day: Over the Top Toppings
Today we celebrate a summertime, cookout classic – the hot dog! It’s National Hot Dog Day and we are cooking up ways to get creative with toppings. Of course, you have the classic ketchup, mustard, and/or relish, but there’s endless options outside of the staples. Check out some of our favorite, out-of-the-box hot dog toppings.
L.A. Street Dogs: These LA Street Dogs encompass all the flavorful qualities of a Los Angeles style dog. Turkey franks accompanied by an adventurous team of bacon, pico de gallo, salsa con queso, and pinto beans. What’s not to love?
The Chicago Dog: A Chicago-style hot dog, or simply Chicago Dog, features a 100% beef frankfurter with a poppyseed bun. Topped with yellow mustard, chopped onion, fresh tomatoes, green relish, pickled sport peppers, celery salt and a whole dill pickle spear. It’s busy but absolutely delicious.
Chipotle Chili Dog: Turn up the heat a notch with a Chipotle Chili Dog. Add a little ground beef, chopped onion, garlic, tomato sauce, and minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce. Don’t forget to finish It off with some shredded cheddar cheese and green onions.
Nacho Tater Tot Dog: Try this combination with a veggie dog. Tater tots, nacho cheese, and pickled jalapenos, great flavor and easy to put together.
Thai-Style Dog: This Thai-inspired recipe features cabbage, cucumber, and grated carrots in a sweet vinaigrette. Use turkey dogs, topped with the veggie mixture, a spicy Asian aioli, and chopped peanuts for a Thai food experience unlike any other.
Macaroni & Cheese Dogs: Next time you have a cookout put out some mac & cheese and have your guests put it on their hot dogs. Excellent comfort food!
Pulled Pork & Coleslaw Dog: If you’re feeling extra adventurous throw some pulled pork on top of your hot dog. Add some coleslaw for a creamy compliment. Make them as a great menu enhancer for summer get togethers.
Basil Pesto Dogs: With bunches of basil, pesto is easy to make. Spread some onto your hot dog for a simple yet refreshing choice of condiment.
Buffalo Dog: A buffalo dog? Yes, please. Buffalo wing sauce, a little ranch, crumbled blue cheese, chives, scallions, and refreshing celery. This is a great option if you like your dogs a bit hotter.
BLT Dog: BLT’s are a classic sandwich. We think they are a classic hot dog as well. Shredded lettuce, chopped tomatoes bacon, and a drizzle ranch, all coming together for one delicious dog.
