Celebrate Beef Hot Dogs

This month is National Hot Dog Month! And I love hot dogs, BUT they have to be all-beef hot dogs.

For a beef girl there is absolutely no substitute.

Luckily, all-beef hot dogs are in large supply. And I will be celebrating them this month (i.e. EATING them).

I’m pretty non-adventurous when it comes to slathering on interesting toppings. But apparently people get really into dressing their dogs up with cra-zay things. I like that. I wish I were more like that.

Here’s some toppings I never would have thought of in a million years…

Mango Salsa


Potato Chips (crushed, of course)

Mac ‘n Cheese

There are others and you can read all about these crazy hot dog toppings here.

But why not think of your own?

Like spicy hot things? Wasabi. M&Ms? Sure.

There’s an endless creativity involved here and it’s pretty fun. The best thing? You get to eat it!

Have fun creating YOUR perfect dog!

New Hot Dog Champion

It’s National Hot Dog Month! Yes!

And Nathan’s just had its famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. What a way to honor the frank – shove as many into your mouth as you can in a short amount of time.

This year’s champion is Joey Chestnut, who set a new record of 69. He absolutely shattered his own record. He beat it by one.

Chestnut says he does this for the “prestige” and not the prize money. And can you blame him?

Read on for more about the hot dog record here.

And have your own contest at home with these beef franks. Ya gotta eat the buns, too. So make sure you’re hungry first.

If you do hold your contest at home you won’t win the prize money, but the prestige factor will definitely be there.

Eat on, my hot dog loving friends!

Oh, Beautiful Hot Dog

I just found out that July is National Hot Dog Month.

Where have I been? It’s almost the middle of July and I’m just now finding this out?

MY fave dogs are all-beef hot dogs. It’s just how I roll. The flavor is outstanding and these are my pick for “Top Dog.”

How about you? Are you a hot dog fan? Will you be celebrating all month long?

July is just full of celebrations, isn’t it?
