Yes, I’m English. Yes, I celebrate July 4th. I’m Americanized, I love fireworks, and most of all, I love barbeques!

It definitely brings out the grill master in all of us. I don’t know what it is about this day that makes me want to throw on a silly obligatory “kiss the cook” apron, fire up the grill, open a beer, and play some country tunes, but I love that feeling. Especially if it’s a hot, sunny day by the pool. What are you guys up to for the fourth? I have to work so I’m celebrating early. Why not? It’s a great excuse to have a go-all-out BBQ.

I think that one of the BBQ staples is the hot dog. Super simple to make, everyone loves them, and you just throw some ketchup on top and you are done. My gourmet hot dogs are sure to impress your party goers this weekend. What’s the amazing part about these dogs? They are so simple to make! SO SIMPLE!

The bahn mi dog is made with pickled carrots and radishes, cilantro, cucumber, and a delicious sriracha mayo. The buffalo chicken dog is made with shredded chicken drenched in buffalo sauce and mixed with green onions and blue cheese. The Mexican dog is made with a Pico de Gallo and topped with sour cream and cheese. Lastly, the beerwurst dog is made with a bratwurst boiled in beer, onions, and spices and finished off on the grill.

So why are you going to settle for ketchup and mustard when you can create delicious handheld master pieces. Oh, and don’t forget the rainbow sangria!
