6 Toppings That Will Enhance The Flavor Of Your Hot Dog

Hot dogs are a classic American food staple. They’re simple to make and easy to eat and you can’t have a summer BBQ without them. But when you just stick with plain hot dogs, they get boring really quick! Of course, you can put some ketchup and mustard on there, but you can do so much more! If you want to surprise your guests at your next summer BBQ, you will have to try harder and make those hot dogs a bit more interesting. In this article, we’ll explore six great toppings that add flavor to your ordinary hot dog. 

1) Hot Chilli, Cheese, And Jalapenos

This is a tried and true combination. Chili con carne, cheese, and jalapenos are the perfect flavors for this hot dog topping. You can buy this specific topping in the store but you can also make it on your own. If you decide to make it, be certain that it’ll taste better. Here’s how to make it at home: first, cook the chili con carne in a pot and after that, cut up some cheese and heat up the jalapenos (without seeds or they’ll be too spicy). You can also add some mayonnaise to marry all the flavors together. When you’re done making it, just put the hot dog into a bun and then add your toppings. It doesn’t matter which extras you opt for, chili cheese dogs are perfect for summer BBQ or a game night and according to The Hot Dog, they’re really easy to make. And voila! You’ve made a great hot dog that everyone loves!

2) BBQ Sauce And Onions

There’s so much you can do with this one. If you want to take a traditional route, heat up some onions and put them together with BBQ sauce onto your hot dog. If you want to try something different, though, you can also take some garlic powder and BBQ sauce and cook it in a pan for 20 minutes. Then put the hot dog into a bun and top it with this delicious sauce. You can’t go wrong with this one!

3) Baked Beans And Yellow Mustard

Baked beans are the perfect side dish for any hot dog because they go so well together. However, if you want to take things up a notch, try adding some yellow mustard to it. This topping is slightly spicy and has that sweet-and-sour taste that just makes your mouth water. Here’s how to make it: heat up the baked beans in a pan and add some yellow mustard and salt and pepper. Keep the heat on for about ten minutes and you’re ready to go. Put your topping over a hot dog and enjoy!

4) Pizza Sauce And Mozzarella Cheese

Who doesn’t love cheese? These two flavors are great on their own but even better together. You can either buy pizza sauce or make it on your own. It’s quite simple, just get some marinara sauce, oregano, salt, and pepper and you’re ready to go. If you want, add some basil too. Then put the hot dog in a bun and pour some pizza sauce over it. Now add some mozzarella cheese all around it. You can put it in the oven to make sure that your cheese melts. It doesn’t get better than this!

5) Fried Onion And French Dressing

This might sound a bit out of the ordinary but it really tastes great! Chop up some onions and pour them into a pan with olive oil. Fry the onions until they’re golden brown and then put your hot dog into a bun. Add your fried onions to this tasty treat, add some French dressing over it, and enjoy this gourmet blend of flavors.

6) Pickles, Onions, And Mustard

Here’s another classic combination that can’t go wrong! Chop up some onions and put them in a pan with some olive oil. Cook the onions until they’re golden brown and add your hot dog to a bun. Then pour some yellow mustard on top of this and add some chopped pickles and your hot dog is ready to serve. You can even add some ketchup if you want to make it even tastier. Everyone will love this flavorful treat!

As you can see, there are so many hot dog topping options that you can explore when you have a summer BBQ event in the near future. Your guest will be much more satisfied with these recipes than with the plain old hot dog with ketchup and mustard. Just remember these six combinations and your next BBQ event will be a success!
