Like a lot of popular foods, we tend to take hot dogs for granted. Tossed mindlessly on the grill then unceremoniously speared, slapped in a bun and slathered with ketchup and mustard, we often find ourselves scarfing them down without a second thought while the kids hurry to finish so they can go back to running through the sprinkler.
But give hot dogs just a bit more love, and they give back tenfold in flavor. Already tasty on their own, they become the essence of all things summer and good when they’re dressed up with a little fresh tomato and cucumber, or given an exotic twist with kimchi and Sriracha sauce. And come this time of year, it seems you can get hot dogs on sale about every other week. So before you plan your next backyard cookout, may we recommend…
Freshen up your dogs with these classic Chicago-style hot dogs. Fresh tomatoes replace ordinary ketchup, while sliced cucumbers give a cool, crisp crunch. Grilled to perfection and topped with dill pickle, they’re an easy way to take your next backyard cookout to the next level.
But if you want to make hot dogs for your next block party that’ll have the whole neighborhood talking, then spend a little time on these Kogi dogs. The kimchi and Sriracha sauce (available at specialty markets) give them an Asian kick, along with a fresh lime-and-scallion cabbage relish and sesame mayo. Wow!
Now that you’ve pleased the crowd at your backyard cookout, it’s time to turn your attention to the brood at home. Unlike in sports, the home crowd can be tougher to please. This Seashell Hot Dog Bake is sure to win them over, chock-full of just about everything a kid could love: pasta, cheese, spaghetti sauce and, of course, hot dogs!
