Happy National Hot Dog Day, everyone!

Hot dogs are something that has truly stood the test of time. Over the years it has evolved. New toppings, new hot dog buns, even new hot dogs. There is something for everyone now – including vegetarians!

I love hot dogs. I do not eat them a lot, but when I do, I am never disappointed. There are so many toppings and I love how everyone has their own preferences on how they like their hot dogs. Mmmm.

I tend to pan fry my hot dogs since I don’t want to start up the grill every time I feel like having one. I have one of those hot dog cutters that I use. Then I throw it in a pan until they start to brown.

In honor of National Hot Dog Day, I am going to share with you some of my favorite ways to have a hot dog!

Cheese and chili – I actually have a great chili recipe that I like to use if I feel like having a chili dog with cheese! There is just something about having a nice piping layer of chili and cheese over that hot dog. Mmmm.

Bacon wrapped – I think the very first bacon wrapped hot dog I had was after a Lakers Game. There was a vendor outside of Staples Center selling them and my husband got so excited that we had to get one. Once I had that first bite, I was instantly hooked.

Breakfast – This year, I tried a new spin on the hot dog! I added an egg and chopped some bacon up for a topping! I’m OBSESSED with having an egg on my burgers. My husband doesn’t understand why. I don’t quite get it either, but it tastes SO GOOD to me.

Plain and simple – Mustard and ketchup. Sometimes I don’t want any of the extra toppings and I just want a very simple hot dog. There isn’t anything wrong with that at all! It’s still very delicious!

Tips On Enjoying National Hot Dog Day

No tips on making and cooking hot dogs. I only say this because everyone likes hot dogs their own way! Enjoy it how you want!

Cheeseburger Sliders – If you’re having hot dogs, sliders also go very well with them! In my opinion, anyway. These sliders are super quick to whip up if you want to also enjoy a slider with your hot dog!
