Dinner

Dogs for Dads!


Father’s Day is coming up this SUNDAY and we decided there’s no better way to celebrate the men in your life than by grilling up some gourmet dogs and crackin’ a cold one! ?? So, we had a little fun and whipped up 6 flavour packed dogs for you to impress pops with this Father’s Day!

The best thing about these dogs is that there is no particular recipe as we know everyone’s tastebuds and love for hot things and sauce differs so we’re giving you the main ingredients to each delicious dog and you can put on as little or as much of the toppings as YOU (or as dad ?) desires!

One thing I will mention is that we used the Beyond Meat vegan sausages for our “hot dogs” and they were delicious!! In fact, they were so good that we believe they would even fool your meat-loving dad! We DOUBLE DOG DARE  you to try one to see if he notices! Challenge accepted?? LOL!

Alright, first things first …

Directions

  1. Prep the ingredients of your desired dog so that they’re ready to load onto your hot dog and bun while they’re still hot off the grill!
  2. Fire up your BBQ to medium heat, once it’s nice and hot, place your sausages on the grill to cook.
  3. When your dogs are getting close to being fully cooked, place your buns (the bread ones ?!) on the grill and toast until your desired perfection!
  4. When the dogs are cooked and the buns are toasted, remove everything from the grill and load up on your desired toppings below!
