The Quintessential Summer Meal: The Hot Dog
Sure. I know what you're thinking. You're like hot dogs? Seriously? Hot Dogs? And I say, yes, hot dogs. I know if you peruse down the ingredient list on the side of a hot dog package, it may be alarming (and quite disgusting, to some), but to me... hot dogs scream summer. They remind me of childhood, when all it took was a ketchup smeared piece of meat in a bun of bread to keep me happy. Nowadays... it'll take a lot more than that to keep me overjoyed. (Andy knows this fact more than anyone) But anyway, the hot dog is a lot like me. It's simple. It's a crowd pleaser. And sometimes it likes to get fancied up. Like in this case. The fully dressed hot dog.
Hot dog buns
Shredded cheddar cheese
(And practically anything else you want to throw on there)
There's not really a recipe here. Just grill the hot dogs until they're done, toast the buns, and throw on whatever tickles your fancy. And then enjoy!
