Now that we’ve had the unofficial kick off of summer and kids are starting to get out of school, it’s time to think about all of those family summer cookouts.
I don’t know about you but hot dogs are always a part of our summer bbqs. They are easy, the kids love them. They are simple to make for a crowd. You really can’t go wrong.
There are so many different topping options when it comes to hot dogs. Depending on what part of the country you’re in your topping musts might be different. In Chicago you might have a hot dog topped with yellow mustard, sweet relish and dill pickle spears. In New York, you might find hot dogs topped with sauerkraut or spicy brown mustard. Here in Seattle, Cream Cheese reigns supreme. Personally for my family, we like the usual standbys of ketchup, mustard, onions and relish. Everyone gets to do their own. Easy peasy.
However, sometimes it’s fun to switch things up and make hot dogs that are out of the box.
Enter these Pulled Pork Hot Dogs. These hot dogs are, as the name suggests, topped with pulled pork. But not just any pulled pork. I teamed up again with the nice people at Curly’s RoadTrip Eats and used their West Coast Style Pulled Pork. I have partnered with Curly’s for a little over a year now and each time I get to create a new recipe I’m amazed at how versatile the pork is.
Making a pulled pork hot dog could not be easier. For this recipe, I made a quick homemade coleslaw. Homemade coleslaw is easy to make. You can buy a pre-shredded cabbage blend or shred the cabbage yourself. The dressing is the heart of the slaw, it really gives it it’s flavor. For this recipe, I wanted a creamy slaw that paired well with the West Coast Style Pulled Pork. To do this I made a mayo based dressing with apple cider vinegar, stone ground mustard, salt, pepper and garlic. That’s it!
Finally, to assemble these Pulled Pork Hot Dogs, I simply topped grilled hot dogs with Curly’s RoadTrip Eats West Coast Style Pulled Pork, the homemade coleslaw and some sliced red onions. The hot dogs were a hit with the whole family and I just know we’ll be making more of these soon.
