Here are 15 Surprising Hot Dog Recipes to get your imagination started.
We'll start off slow with this Carolina Style dog from SugardishMe, which features chili and homemade coleslaw.
Next up is a California dog from Tastes Better From Scratch – hint: it's the alfalfa sprouts that make this “California” style.
Here are two Sonoron style options. What's so great about a Sonoran style hot dog that we need 2 recipes? It's a hot dog wrapped in bacon – what could be better?
