We love cooking food on the grill in the warm months – actually you’ll often find me on the patio grilling in the snow as well! One of our favourite foods to grill are hot dogs but our plain old hot dogs needed to be spiced up. I decided to put together a buffet of toppings to create some delicious gourmet hot dogs and my taste testers gave them all two thumbs up.
Gourmet Hot Dogs:
Nacho Average Hot Dog:
For this Nacho Average Hot Dog (Get it? Not Your Average!), you’ll need nacho cheese dip, diced tomatoes, sour cream and crushed cheese-flavored nacho chips.
Mushroom & Swiss Dog:
For this Mushroom & Swiss Dog you’ll need fresh Swiss cheese slices, sauteed mushrooms and ranch salad dressing.
Opa! Hot Dog:
I absolutely love Greek food so this is the hot dog that I had to try for supper! For this Opa Hot Dog you’ll need Tzatziki spread, diced tomatoes, diced cucumbers and crumbled feta cheese. I sure wish I had a piece of baklava for dessert after this hot dog! Out of the three gourmet hot dogs I made, this one is my favorite!
Another delicious idea for gourmet hot dogs is taking your favourite appetizer and turning it into a hot dog topping like buffalo chicken wing sauce, maybe a Cowboy Gourmet Hot Dog with BBQ sauce and onion rings…the possibilities are endless!
