Backyard barbecues are one of the most fun parts of the spring and summer, and we have our grills ready! We always serve up burgers and franks, and my favorite way to eat hot dogs is New York style…I just grew up loving them that way!
In New York, the traditional hot dog is pretty simple (I hear other parts of the country can get pretty quirky with their toppings, including chips or guacamole!). Here in the Big Apple, we actually tend to boil them (the streets of NYC are lines with hot dog vendors making them this way) and on Long Island, we cook them on the grill, then serve them in a hot dog bun topped with mustard, ketchup, and sauerkraut. That’s usually it…sometimes I’ll add on some relish, and when my family from Pittsburgh visits and brings some of their mean chili, I’ll make my franks with chili and onions (spicy and delicious!), but otherwise, I go for the typical New York style hot dog, and I love it!
We use Bar-S Franks for our parties because they are such a great value, and currently the #1 selling franks in the country…we prefer the Bun Length to make the perfect ratio of bun to dog. Bar-S Franks are available in Classic, Classic Jumbo, Bun Length and Cheese Jumbo, and a line of Premium Beef Franks (I was happy to find them at a local Dollar Tree) and all are perfect for grilling and in favorite family recipes. A Bar-S frank on a bun with my sauerkraut, ketchup and mustard, and there you have it, a New York style hot dog!
