DIY Hot Dog Bar

For the release of Gilbert’s Natural Franks, we asked our friend Michele at Mom Under Pressure to come up with some ideas for a crowd-pleasing hot dog bar for summer gatherings. Even if the kids don’t venture beyond ketchup, here are some festive franks that will keep the adults happy.



Place corn on a baking tray. Season with salt and pepper. Roast in a 450 degree oven until corn is slightly charred. This will take about 15 minutes. Flip half way through. Once the corn is cool enough to handle use a sharp knife to cut off kernels into a bowl. Mix with onions, cheese, and chili-lime seasoning.


Mix together 3 parts or mayo to 1 part sriracha or to taste depending on how much spice you can take!


Saute sliced mushrooms on medium-high heat in a skillet with 2 teaspoons of oil for 5 minutes. After they have lightly browned add a pinch of salt to taste and a few grinds of black pepper. Crisp bacon in the oven or microwave, or buy ready made bacon crumbles.
