hotdogsHot Dogs Revisited:  Some Fun New Ways to Serve Hot Dogs!

Even though it’s August and you may be thinking about back to school, back yard barbeques are still going strong!  And with that in mind, I love finding new ways of serving old favorites – with hot dogs at the top of that list!  Not too long ago, Busy Bee offered a number of delicious gourmet hot dog toppings and now I’ve got some new ideas to share!

Hot Dogs Across the Country

Almost every region of the United States has created its own special version of this cook out classic!  Give one of these local renditions of hot dog toppings a try:

  • New York:  brown mustard and onions stewed in tomato paste
  • Kansas City:  melted Swiss cheese and sauerkraut
  • Atlanta:  loads of coleslaw
  • Chicago:  yellow mustard, chopped onion, tomato slices, and pickled green peppers sprinkled with celery salt
  • Detroit:  all-beef chili, raw white onion, yellow mustard and shredded cheddar cheese

Creative Hot Dog Recipes

Even the most distinguished chefs and culinary magazines have offered delicious renditions of the simple hot dog!
