I’m not sure who comes up with these “national you name it days”, but when it’s for a delicious and somewhat misunderstood food item like the hot dog, I say let’s go!

Yes, a guy named Dan Abbate created the world’s largest hot dog, as confirmed by the Guiness Book Of World Records…you can find more on it online…

So, as we are celebrating everything “hot dog”, I want to share some of the world’ finest attempts to make a hot dog!

First, we are NOT the only country that loves a hot dog…look at this chart!

Yes, the Japanese love their hot dogs as well. So let’s celebrate all that comes between a bun!

Here are my five favorite hot dogs, and the stories I have posted about them:

A Krispy Kreme Dog!

Krispy Kreme is beloved for their SWEET SWEET SWEET doughnuts, so why not wrap one of them around a hot dog – and don’t forget the bacon!

Time to move on to an amazing inventive use of a hot dog. Many consider this to be some sort of sick joke, but I think it is the coolest cooking idea EVER – spahetti-infused hot dogs!

Now, it’s time to turn to one of America’s national treasures: Col. Sanders!

KFC achieved fast food notoriety with their infamous “Double down” chicken sandwich, with two chicken patties instead of buns!

Well, they couldn’t stop there: Col. Sanders just might be turning over in his imaginary grave after seeing:

“The Double Down Hot Dog!”

So what they have done is to find a way to “wrap” a piece of fried chicken around a hot dog! And people ate it!

If you can stomach it, click to see more of the “Double Down Hot Dog!”

OK, these are, in many ways, a perversion of what a hot dog is supposed to be: a tube of meat placed between a bun. But for many of us, the bun is unnecessary!

Hot Doug's BLT hot dog

Hot Doug Shocker!

Chicago’s Hot Doug’s was known for some amazing hot dogs, like the “BLT” that you see above, and the “Foie Gras Dog” shown here:

And it was just a year ago that I posted about the shocking closure of “Hot Doug’s”, the greatest hot dog stand in Chicago!

hot-dougs Doug Sohn

Doug Sohn decided to walk away from his hugely successful hot dog stand, then just announced a deal with the Chicago Cubs to serve his classic hot dogs at Wrigley Field…see some of Doug’s magic right here:
