Look, I love hot dogs or franks or whatever they’re called. I’m the son of meat company owner, so of course I do, but check it out man, I wouldn’t eat them if I didn’t love them, okay? More importantly, I’ve had friends who aren’t muslims and they told me, “Cassem, I don’t like hot dogs, what else can I eat?” and I tell them, “There is nothing else, only hot dogs.” So, they give it a try and then they tackle a few more before the night is done because, and I’m going to say it because clearly, I am passionate! These are the best hot dogs around, bar none. This is my personal view, and am I biased? Almost certainly, but am I right? I mean… yeah. I am.
Joking aside, I do love hot dogs for their ease of preparation and because hot dogs really make for the perfect get together or grill out food. You can lay out some basic toppings, or elaborate ones like the elote salad below, and someone will love it. Simplicity is the essence of perfection, and no meat product describes that phrase more than a hot dog. At least in my opinion!
All that said, check out our video for some of my favorite toppings for Midamar’s hot dogs or keep scrolling for a couple recipes and a grill out list!
