Hopped Up Hot Dogs

Hopped Up Hot Dogs! Try Something New

They’re affordable, yummy, great on the grill, and hard to mess up – hot dogs are an essential summer food!

Hot dogs, which are a peculiar form of sausage, got their start in Germany. There are 2 towns who claim to have created the first versions of the hot dog – Frankfurt claims ownership of the frankfurter since 1484, and Vienna claims to be the true originators of the wienerwurst. No matter who created them, it is agreed that German immigrants were the first to sell wieners in New York from food carts in the 1860’s. Nathan Handwerker – a Jewish immigrant from Poland – began his own hot dog stand around 1915 where he charged 5¢ below the typical price; this put other stands out of business and created the ever famous “Nathan’s”.

Fun Fact! When President Franklin Roosevelt hosted King George VI in Hyde Park, 1939 – Eleanor Roosevelt made grilled hot dogs part of the menu for a picnic. People were worried that this would reflect poorly for America, but the King enjoyed them so much he asked for seconds!

Take a break from your regular ketchup and mustard this year! Try one of these loaded hot dogs at your next backyard barbecue!
