Hot Dog Taquitos
OK, so you’re thinking why would I go to all this effort for a hot dog. Here’s why: more room to catch the toppings! Crispy edges! Fun shape!
Here’s how: Insert a skewer in the center of each frank. Take a small knife, cut at an angle while rolling the frank away from you. Slide the frank off the skewer, stretch out the spirals, then grill.
Bahn Mi Dogs
If hot dogs are the perfect food, and the bahn mi is the perfect sandwich, then the bahn mi dog is a match made in long weekend heaven. Recipe inspired Julie Yoon.
Here’s how: shred 2 carrots and 2 cucumbers and quickly pickle them in 1 cup water, 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2 cup white vinegar for 1 hour. Make a Sriracha mayo by mixing 2 tsp Sriracha with 1/2 cup mayonnaise. Grill franks, slide into buns, squeeze over the Sriracha mayo and top with the pickled vegetables.
