Hot Dog Bar

Hot dog with toppings on a red, white, and blue plate.

Hot dog lovers unite.

No more of this middle school “eeww” act. Summer equals at least a few good hot dogs with a lot of good friends and there's no getting around it. Who's with me?

One of the things we've loved doing this summer (ok, maybe more than once) was hosting a good ole hot dog bar. We gave everyone a hot dog and let them loose at a buffet table loaded with fresh toppings and serving suggestions.

Tijuana Dogs

  • cubed avocado
  • chopped fresh tomatoes
  • chopped red onions
  • fresh cilantro
  • seasoned black beans
  • sour cream
  • cotija cheese

California Dogs

  • fresh sprouts
  • shredded carrots
  • fresh cilantro
  • chopped red onions
  • cubed avocado
  • chopped fresh tomatoes

Greek Dog

  • feta cheese
  • banana peppers
  • chopped cucumbers
  • hummus
  • chopped red onions
  • chopped fresh tomatoes

Annnd I happened to be stuffing my face with a California-Tijuana hybrid hot dog at both hot dog bars that we hosted, so I don't have a picture of the table.

But really, you don't have time to be looking at a picture. You should be getting on Facebook and inviting all your friends over for a holiday weekend hot dog bar. ReadySetGo!

      I know. I was always kind of so-so about hot dogs, but I am obsessed with toppings, so this was the perfect combo for me!

    You can never go wrong with a good ole Hot Dog. There is no BBQ complete without some type of Hot Dog being served. Thanks for the great idea, I’m really going to invest into that (Hot Dog Bar) right away. I have family and friends that will enjoy this. Thanks
