Rethinking the Hotdog

Its BBQ season and that means lots and lots of hotdogs. But let me tell you I'm not the hugest fans of hotdogs, I have a hard time finishing one. These are literally all my boyfriend eats so I had to come up with ways to stomach them and I succeeded. So put away the ketchup, mustard and relish and break out these ingredients because it is time to rethink that hotdog.
I have three different hotdogs for you to make. The Garden Dog, Seattle Dog and Taco Dog. The ingredients needed for these are avocado, onion, salsa, tomato, sour cream, cheese, peppers, guacamole and cream cheese. 
The Garden dog includes guacamole spread on the bun and topped with onions, tomatoes and sliced avocado and anything else you happen to find growing in your garden. This one is my personal favorite and the guacamole is absolutely superb on hotdogs. I don't know if I'll be able to eat one without it now. 
This one isn't exactly a new concept. It includes cream cheese spread on the bun and topped with onions, peppers and tomatoes. Cream cheese is a popular spread on hotdogs in Seattle. 
I LOVE tacos so I decided to substitute the taco meat for a hotdog. Sour cream is on the bun and it is topped with salsa, onions and cheese. Delicious! These should make your BBQ experience more enjoyable than the condiments usually associated with hotdogs. Enjoy!
