I’ll be honest, I’m super picky when it comes to hot dogs. This is probably due to a bad experience with a street vendor as a child, but still. If I’m going to eat a hot dog, it has to be absolutely delicious. Beef franks, mustard, and enough toppings to feed a small army. These toppings differ with how I’m feeling at the time. Sometimes I like ’em spicy and once, on a trip to Miami, I actually ate a hot dog that had been covered in fresh fruit and whipped cream. These hot dogs aren’t that wild, but they are crazy delicious. The next time your family chooses hot dogs for dinner, get rid of the ketchup and mustard and try one of these great recipes.
