Hot Dog Toppings


One of the reasons I love hot dogs…? They are so simple. It’s hard to mess them up.

And, yeah, you might not think of serving them at anything other than a bbq, but I’m sharing five fun ways to give them an instant upgrade and impress your guests for any event.


Taking a cue from a traditional sandwich in Philly, I paired some classic flavors to turn this dog into a Philly Cheese dog. Cut a slit down the center of your cooked dog and stuff with provolone cheese. Cover with hot sautéed peppers and onions for instant yum.


There’s nothing better than warm and creamy mac & cheese. I flipped the script a bit and instead of putting sliced dogs into my mac & cheese, I put the mac & cheese directly on my dog. Top with fresh cracked pepper and serve on a warm pretzel bun, and you’ve elevated the classic kids dish into something anyone will dig.


You don’t have to visit the islands or place a pizza order to get a little hawaiian flavor going on here. I paired a classic dog with fried Canadian bacon slices, crushed pineapple, and topped it all off with teriyaki sauce. The tropics are calling and this guy has answered.


Another sandwich lent it’s flavor profiles to this bad boy. Hot pastrami, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and hot mustard paired perfectly to make this Pastrami dog. I’m sure it would make any New Yorker proud.


Last but not least, and my favorite…the BLT. A bacon wrapped dog, covered in ranch coated iceberg lettuce (because what’s not better with ranch?), sliced cherry tomatoes, and bacon bits on top, just for good measure…of course. Does it get any better than this?


Whichever flavor you choose, these puppies will go fast and have your guests asking for seconds.
