It is officially grilling season around here, and we couldn’t be more excited to start off the season right. Although hot dogs are an easy BBQ go-to, it is fun to make the meal feel a little more special. When I’m hosting friends, I never want to serve just an ordinary hot dog. Instead, we try to find the best ingredients and serve them up in a fun and festive way. This weekend, we’ll be grilling up these Greek-inspired hot dogs. Paired with a big salad and tasty sangria, it is BBQing at its best.

To make the Greek-inspired hot dogs, we use a compilation of our favorite quality toppings inspired by the summer beaches of Greece. To make your own versions at home, start with a really good quality hot dog. I love Hebrew National® All-Beef Franks for their wholesome ingredients. They are the hot dogs I feed my family, so of course I’m going to pay a little extra to serve them to our summer BBQ guests.

After the hot dogs are correctly charred (any good hot dog should have a few burn marks to show off), try out these Greek-inspired toppings to finish it off:

  • Hunt’s Ketchup
  • Roasted Red Peppers
  • Thinly Sliced Red Onions
  • Kalamata Olives
  • Capers
  • Spicy Pickles

We set the stage for our summer BBQs using bright colors and pretty leaves. One of the easiest ways to decorate a table for a party is to quickly snip off a few leaves from your favorite house plants. They add a nice texture and give the table a festive and approachable feel.

heb-natl-logoWhat makes a Hebrew National kosher hot dog premium? It’s all about what makes the cut (and what doesn’t). We’re choosy about what goes into our franks – we use only premium cuts of 100% kosher beef from the front half of the cow and then choose the best from that. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or by-products. When your hot dog is kosher, that’s a hot dog you can trust! For more summer fun with Hebrew National, visit facebook.com/hebrewnational.
