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.

Instructions 

Mexican

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.

Asian

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

Steakhouse

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.
