10 Epic Hot Dog Recipes for Memorial Day

May 20, 2015

Memorial Day marks the unofficial kickoff of summer and, according to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, the beginning of peak hot dog season (Americans consumed some 7 billion dogs between Memorial Day and Labor Day in 2013). And while the humble hot dog will never be considered gourmet or glamorous, it is pretty tasty, and with the right toppings can be crazy delicious. Here are several inventive hot dog recipes to try this holiday weekend.  

Loaded cheddar hot dogs (with garlic sautéed mushrooms, grilled onions, bacon, and white cheddar sauce--oh my!)

Firecracker hot dogs (with fried jalapeños!)

Pizza hot dogs 

And if burgers are more your thing, here are nine insanely delicious burger recipes to try this holiday weekend.


  1. Whole foods makes a killer mango salsa. I can imagine that being quite tasty on a hot dog. Those other hot dogs are pretty innovative to say the least.

    1. Ooh, I'll have to try it. I thought for sure you would comment on the mac and cheese dog!
