Now that grilling season is in full gear, I thought it high time to share a new hot dog recipe. After all, the good ol’ standby of ketchup, mustard, relish and onions can get a bit boring. Today, I’ve decided to take one of my favorite sandwiches “the BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich” and turn it into a hot dog. This dog is piled high with tangy coleslaw, crispy BBQ onion strings and BBQ sauce. It is a deliciously messy twist on a classic.
I hope you all had a relaxing long weekend. Ours wasn’t super relaxing but it was loaded with fun. Our little Prestonio turned 1. We had family and friends come visit. The party was minion themed and I baked a cake from scratch that turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself :) I shared a picture on Instagram. Whatcha think? I’m really starting to enjoy cake decorating!
The birthday boy loved the cake and visiting with his friends and family. He played and played and played and played. By the time all was said and done, little man and Mama were all tuckered out. Which is why, when Monday rolled around, and it was just our small little family again, we took it easy for our Memorial Day spread and made these Loaded BBQ Hot Dogs.
I’ve been putting slaw on pretty much everything lately. I love the crunch and the creaminess. It takes burgers, sandwiches and in this case, hot dogs to a whole other level. And while I love the slaw on this hot dog, the real star of the show is the crispy BBQ onion strings and they couldn’t be easier to make. You simply cut onions super thin, toss them with a little BBQ sauce (I used my fave Stubb’s Smokey Mesquite) and let them marinate in it for a bit. Then dredge them in flour and fry until crispy and golden brown. They are smoky, sweet and the perfect crunchy addition to this hot dog.

I didn’t have the stuff for the slaw tonight only the bbq fried onions for our dogs. I used sweet heat BBQ sauce and they turned out wonderful. Plan on making them again to top a BBQ chicken salad. Thanks!

You’re welcome! The fried onions are kind of my favorite part, so glad you liked them!

I am with you on the SLAW! On everything. My kids might fall over if I whipped out some crispy onions to top their dogs… Definitely need to do this!

Oh my! This hot dog. Now I can get down on some of this. I’m not such a huge fan of just plain ol’ dogs, but I love how you jazzed this one up. It sounds amazing!

I love this. Hot dogs are my ultimate indulgence. I know they aren’t the best for us, but I really love them. I love what you have added to yours. Pinning.
