5 Hot Dogs to Try This Summer


Summer time, especially July here in the States, is prime time for hot dogs. While there are more recipes for hamburgers than you would believe, the humble hot dog is often overlooked. Just as customizable, you don’t have to stick to mustard and relish if you’re looking to change things up next time you throw some links on the grill.

Banh Mi Dog

Add an exotic Vietnamese twist to your hot dog with spicy mayo, sliced cucumber, shredded carrot, cilantro (or mint if you don’t care for cilantro), and pickled jalapeno peppers. Fresh and spicy come to mind when describing the taste of this dog. Cole slaw goes well with the Banh Mi Dog, as the coolness offsets the heat from the dog.

Steak House dog

Got some steak sauce but no steak? No problem. Just make the steak house dog. Tomatoes, grilled or fresh onions, and some steak sauce of your choice will set you up with this delectable dish. Grill some corn while you’re at it and you’ve got a meal everyone will love.

Cuban Dog

A Cuban sandwich without the sandwich. Just add sliced ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and spicy mustard. Serve on a Cuban roll if you have one for extra authenticity points.

Mac and Cheese Dog

Kids will love the mac and cheese dog. Simply whip up a batch of your favorite mac and dole it out onto the dog. Add bacon if you want something extra savory. A side of potato chips goes well with this one.

Loaded Baked Potato Dog

This one’s out there. Load up a baked potato as you would normally with your preferred toppings, but don’t forget to add the hot dog. The potato serves in place of the bun!
