A Ballpark Classic


Celebrate the opening of America’s favorite pastime with America’s favorite BBQ food: hot dogs. Spice up your hot dog game by setting up a buffet station by your outdoor dining set and dedicate it to delicious toppings that range from classic to eclectic. The options are endless, but here are a few to get you started…

Dogs & Buns || Offer a mix of all-beef and veggies dogs so guests with dietary restrictions can join in on the fun too. Bratwursts and sausages are also great options to add in the mix! Since there will be many toppings to choose from it will be good to have a variety of bun styles too. Hoagie rolls will be great for those that really want to make a monster dog while traditional rolls are perfect for a few toppings. Satisfy those carb-cutters by also offering large leaves of lettuce as a breadless option!

Tasty Toppings || The options here are truly endless, but to streamline the process for both you and your guests print a couple specific recipes and leave the cards at the station as a guide. Below are a few crowd-pleasers:

The All-American: beef dog topped with mac & cheese, bacon bits, and crushed potato chips. Bonus: add BBQ pulled pork.

Mexican Street Dog: beef dog topped with seasoned ground beef, chargrilled corn, scallions, lime mayo, and Cotija cheese.

Classic Reuben: sausage, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, and Thousand Island dressing (mayo, ketchup, and sweet relish).

Hawaiian Dog: veggie dog topped with diced pineapple, jalapeño, red onion, cilantro, and teriyaki mayo (mayo, teriyaki sauce, and lime juice).

Creative Condiments || Be sure to include all specialty condiments necessary for the recipes you choose such as the mayo mixes, but also include the classics. Offer a catalog of mustards that range from spicy Dijon to sweet honey to traditional yellow. BBQ, Buffalo, and Sriracha are also fan favorites. Just don’t forget the relish and ketchup!
