Ditch those tired hot dog toppings and try out these killer combinations at your next barbecue! From sandwich inspired toppings like the classic BLT to a Frito pie dog, these combos are sure to please every guest.
Banh Mi Dog
If you’ve ever had a banh mi from a Vietnamese deli or restaurant, you were probably instantly hooked. There’s something so perfect about the french baguette, pickled vegetables, fresh jalapeños, and mayo on top of some kind of salty meat. This hot dog version is no joke and is a great way to get your fix when the real thing isn’t available.
BLT dogs are simple and easy to make and are a delectable topping combination for your dogs at a weekend barbecue. Simply add crumbled bacon, thinly sliced Romaine lettuce, and diced cherry tomatoes to the top of grilled hot dogs.
Seattle Hot Dog
Sautéed onions, cream cheese, jalapeño slices, and sauerkraut… It’s easy to see why people love Seattle hot dogs. It’s popular street food in the city, and this recipe shows you how to bring that signature taste home. While they definitely are not lacking in the flavor department, adding Sriracha sauce or brown mustard gives them an extra boost.
The Southwest Dog is another super easy hot dog topping combination. All you need is sliced avocado, your favorite salsa, cilantro leaves, and a squirt of lime juice. Pick your favorite kind of dog, from turkey to spicy chorizo, and be prepared to be stunned!
Frito Pie Dog
It doesn’t get more indulgent than classic Frito Pie. This topping is not only easy, but it’s ideal for those who like a little crunch on their dogs. For this recipe, we recommend you make your own chili ahead of time. A no-bean chili works the best, as it will stay on the dogs better.
Mexican Street Corn Dog
Take all of your favorite Mexican Street Corn toppings and throw them on top of a mess of dogs. It’s the perfect spicy and creamy topping mixture for your next barbecue. Thinly slice celery and then sprinkle it over the top. Enjoy!
There is so much more to the humble Hot Dog than a cheap sausage in a bun. Choose good quality topping and fillings for healthier Hot Dogs. A better Hot Dog makes a great meal and these recipes are the best for making that Hot Dog something spectacular.
