National Hot Dog Day!

Is it safe to say that I believe at least 80% of Americans grew up eating hot dogs?? Of course our childhood hot dogs in no way looked as amazing as the one seen above, but when looking back at what my childhood diet consisted of, it’s safe to say that hot dogs were highly present. Unfortunately, as I got a little older and a lot wiser, my fascination of what exactly made up a hot dog led me to read the list of ingredients on the packaging. Yeah, that was the last time I had a hot dog too. Thankfully, these days there are a lot more meat options for hot dog lovers! Check out the list below for some delicious hot dog recipes and feel free to substitute the regular hot dogs for turkey or veggie dog!
