If you go to a baseball game, are you there for the game or the food? I don’t get to Giants stadium very often, but when I do, I’m there for the beer and hot dogs. I couldn’t care less about watching baseball! Special occasions like those are about the only time I eat hot dogs.
My boys, on the other hand, love hot dogs and could eat them at least four nights a week if I let them. I like a good hot dog from time to time, but the kids are happy to just eat them plain without even a bun! That won’t quite cut it for me. If I’m going to eat a hot dog, I want it to be fancied up a bit. The great thing about hot dogs is they are pretty versatile. If your kids aren’t adventurous, just give them a plain dog while you enjoy these more complex recipes.
