Anything but Average Hot Dogs Will Tantalize Your Taste Buds
I love this time of year because the smells of delicious things cooking on the grill float through the air and permeate everything.
In my house, we grill so much (even in the winter) that I have to buy my husband a new grill every two years. One of our favorite things to create are these anything but average hot dogs. No joke, these mouth-wateringlyngly (I don’t think that’s even a word, but we’re gonna run with it) amazing. Jay and I love to experiment with different ways to top off our all beef hot dogs and we’ve decided to share some of our favorite ways with you!
To start- you’ll need:
1 package of hot dogs and 1 package of hot dog roll
1. Place hot dogs on grill, in microwave, or boil until cooked.
2. Time to jazz up the hot dogs (don’t worry- it doesn’t take long!)
