Hot Dogs!!!!

Dear Friends, My husband LOVES hot dogs! Well, I am pretty crazy for them too...

So I thought I would share some hot dog ideas with you that my friend Sally shared with me...

Toppings for Hot Dog Boards, see attachment:

  • Relish: Mandatory for its crunch; go for one with extra-chunky texture.

  • Grainy mustard: More texture and mellower taste than plain yellow.

  • Grilled onions and bell peppers: Drizzle with Italian dressing and grill in a foil pack.

  • Chili: Go meat or go home. And if things get a bit soggy? That’s what the bun is for.

  • Queso: The saucy creaminess makes any dog feel fancy in a way shredded cheese just can’t. (Best part: Whip up a batch as an app with tortilla chips and encourage people to spoon extra on their dogs.)

  • Guacamole: Mash yours with extra lime; it’ll help cut the fat.

  • Pineapple salsa: Pineapple, jalapeño, and cilantro—the sweet offsets a salty dog.

  • Dill pickles: Pile on the chips: The salty, vinegary snap always hits.

  • Pickled red onions: A flavor bomb: Their tart tanginess wakes up everything.
