Hot dogs aren’t just for kids at the Sunday cookout. They can be very affordable family fare any night of the week. You can get cheapies and gourmet dogs. turkey or all beef. spicy or kid-friendly mild. Throw some on the grill, offer a tableful of toppings, and let the family go to town.
You can split them and fill them with chili for coney dogs. Wrap them in bacon for a crispy, porky dog. Slice’em and fry ’em up with a can of beans for a “beanie-weenie” lunch for the kids. Remember when everyone split them, inserted a slide of American sheese, then wrapped them in Crescent dough for a retro treat we called Pigs in a Blanket?
Not surprisingly, Ball Park has a whole slew of recipes on its website. CLICK HERE for their ideas. Likewise, you’ll get some fun takes on preparation tips and topping ideas for dogs from the Oscar Mayer site. For old-fashioned Jewish and kosher hot dog recipes, CLICK HERE. (Note: kosher dogs have no “suspicious” body parts in them!)
So think about hot dogs for your next family meal — usually easy, often cheap and very versatile!
