What's Your Favorite Hot Dog Topping?

When you think fall, the word "hot dog" doesn't always come to mind. But really, it's one of our favorite fall party treats. They can be dressed up, down, and prepared in advance. Can you tell what's on the dog above? Take a guess and then share your favorite topping and see what add-ons you've been missing!

Since most of us still have our grills out and are putting them to work through the Fall and Winter months, hot dogs can be a great way to get a big bang for your buck when it comes to entertaining. We caught a quick lunch at a local eatery in downtown Kansas City and we were quickly reminded why we love this versatile food so much.

The dog above is served on a pretzel bun, topped with lump crab meat, asparagus and hollandaise sauce. It was most spectacular and can easily be recreated in your home kitchen. Try taking your favorite meal and break it apart into ingredients and add it to your dog. Throw on some Mac and Cheese along with crumbled bacon. How about chili, avocado and a few salty chips? What's your ideal dog look like? Let us know in the comments below!
