Did you know that all during the month of July we celebrate the humble Hot Dog Bun? With National Hot Dog Day being celebrated on July 21 this year we want to help you create the ultimate DIY Hot Dog Board to share with family and friends. Want to be the ‘Top Dog’ at the BBQ this summer then follow our 4 simple steps to hot dog happiness.
Step 2: Beef, pork, turkey or veggie hot dogs? Choose one or choose them all, whichever you select just make sure they’re hot and there’s plenty of them! Most prefer their hot dogs grilled however you can also boil, steam, microwave or even pan fry your hot dogs.
Step 3: Try all the toppings! While the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (yes that is a real thing!) advise that only people aged under 18 should place ketchup on their hot dog and report that mustard is the most loved condiment for hot dog lovers we say why stop there? Fill your Gourmet Hot Dog Bun with relish, onions, salsa, cheese or pickles. For an even more interesting mix try some jalapenos with some blue cheese on our Herb and Garlic Hot Dog Bun to truly treat your taste buds.
Step 4: Admire your daring DIY hot dog creation and then eat & enjoy. Repeat steps 1-4 as often as necessary…or as far your waistband allows!
