Happy National Hot Dog Day!

Happy National Hot Dog Day! Did you know, today is the day to enjoy the yummy long buns with juicy sausage!


The key to bring me a smile when a hot dog is concerned…the frank should be bigger than the buns. Who agrees with me? 😉

Let’s cook!

  1. Pour olive oil in a pan and cook cabbage. Sprinkle some salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.
  2. In a different pan, pour olive oil and bring it to medium high heat. Add franks and grill them.
  3. Toast buns.
  4. Load the buns with cabbages, franks, and ketchup. Mustard and sauerkraut on the side. Enjoy while it’s hot!


Before I meet sauerkrauts, grilled cabbage was the must to be added in hot dogs…what’s your favorite hot dog toppings?


Today’s post is a quick one. Hopefully you have a wonderful day on this busy day in the middle of the week:)

    That hotdog looks delicious! 🤩 I was surprised to read that you don’t put any mayonnaise on it. I thought, people in the U.S. do that, but I personally like the hotdogs – if we ever eat them – just the way you prepared it. 😋

      Oh really!? I thought mayo doesn’t belong to hot dogs so surprised to hear that from you🤣 But when I lived in Seattle, there is a famous local version of hot dogs with cream cheese sauce🤤 Maybe because of the climate but dairy up there is so much better for both in taste and price😁 Maybe I should make Seattle version next time😋🌭

        I honestly don’t even know if mayo is ok on hotdogs but the Seattle version sounds more appealing to me, too 😁👍

    Yes, you are right. Hot dogs are what I call party food. They remind me of BBQs and picnics when I was a kid and I guess even still now as an older lady 😉
