No Independence Day celebration is complete without a hot dog. This year, we’ll help you wow your guests without having to miss out on the tradition … We even threw in some fun, kid-pleasing recipes, too, with a Gourmet Dog Bar.

For the basis of every dog, you’ll want to stick with your tried and true grilling method: medium heat, turning dogs consistently for 7-10 minutes. Choose a higher quality hot dog that will stand up to the flavors we’ll add … all beef franks are the best choice here. Choose a sturdy bun as you’ll want to load on the toppings.

Ideally, you will have a large table where you can set out dishes in groups, with cards to label each topping station. For instance, group your BBQ sauce, diced onions, crumbled bacon and shredded cheese together with the label “BBQ Dog” in front.

Tailor your hotdog bar to your guests, too… if you have spice lovers, try the Thai Dog, but if calmer, more comforting flavors are preferred, stick to the Mac N Cheese Dog or the Pizza Dog.

Most importantly, have fun. This is a great way to get creative and show your silly side!

Happy grilling!
