A Doggone Good Way to Celebrate National Hot Dog Day


Hooray for hot dogs! July 23rd is National Hot Dog Day. In fact, the entire month of July has been declared National Hot Dog Month, but there’s a special day to celebrate them too.

Here are some creative ways to take your hot dog to the next level with these recipes…

Two such dogs that have really gone ‘gourmet,’ come to us from Rico’s Diner inside Wonderland of the Americas in San Antonio: The Swiss Mushroom Hot Dog [below] with layers of melted Swiss cheese and white mushrooms, and Rico’s Hot Dog from Hell complete with jalapeños, Serrano peppers and Habanero aioli to really heat things up!


And there’s more. These “designer hot dogs” from Kata Robata’s Chef Manabu Horiuchi make a beautiful presentation at any outdoor party. Try the Kata Ro-Dog-A [below] or the Huntin’ Dog the next time you’re entertaining.


Lastly, everything’s better with bacon! Also try Aldaco’s Bacon-Wrapped Hot Dogs. They’re sure to please any bacon lover.
