Summertime is Hot Dog Time!
For some, summer may be “technically” coming to a close, but if you’re anything like the team here at GrillJunkie then grilling season is never over. In fact, we’re still in peak hot dog months until Labor Day. This 3.5 month period is when Americans eat the most hot dogs out of the entire year at an estimated seven billion hot dogs nationwide. Also, summer is not “technically” over until September 21, so let’s get some great hot dogs on the grill!
The hot dog is a summertime staple, a must-have for tailgates and grilling outdoors in general. The history of the hot dog is juicy. In fact, the hot dog has been around for over a century, but foodies still seek its perfection. Ketchup and mustard are no longer good enough; the hot dog has gone gourmet, and has come a long way from being considered simple “ballpark food.” Hot dog enthusiasts seek recipes to take it to the next level. Plain hot dogs with minimal toppings will pass when you’re out of condiments in the fridge, but if you have the time, why not spice it up?
Personal Creations cooked up 9 gourmet variations on the hot dog and shared them in this handy hot dog toppings graphic. Much like their previous Grilling Around The World infographic, this one explores great topping variations and some with international flare too. Check it out below:
