the "perfect hotdog"

Happy Memorial Day all you finemealwoman readers! Summer is here and that means BBQs. I recently heard a piece on NPR about the "perfect hotdog." We decided to give it a go!

Apparently, the "perfect hotdog" has a natural casing, is grilled (never boiled), has a buttered and grilled bun, and is topped with onions and mustard (never ketchup). We did our best and to be honest, I think it was the best hot dog I've ever had. The grilled buns really added to the overall flavor, plus our natural dogs were really tasty!

We bought Nature's Promise brand hotdogs. They are all natural uncured beef, no preservatives, no nitrates or nitrates added, the beef is raised with no antibiotics, no growth stimulants or added hormones, and are vegetarian fed. Best of all, they were really, really tasty!

So buy your hotdogs, fire up the grill, and enjoy the "perfect hotdog" this weekend!


  1. when I went on a road trip with my parents to WV/DC, we had several dogs. The best ever was with chili, slaw, onions and mustard, and this was in Charleston where my dad grew up. He said he used to go in and order, "two on two with chili and slaw" :) Try it sometime!

  2. yum! Everything is better with butter, if you ask me. . .oh- all that other stuff on there looks good, too!

  3. We are converted! Trader Joes has some great no nitrate hotdogs.

  4. We've had the ones from Trader Joes and liked them too.
