It’s Sunday, Why Not “Spiralized” Hot Dogs? 5 Wacky Hot Dogs Recipes!

Who needs some bacon-wrapped hot dogs on a stick? It’s Sunday, so I’m thinking about making something different today…maybe this!

THE AMAZING SPIRAL HOT DOG!

I found this story once on “LAUGHINGSQUID”: Using a metal drill bit and his “fave dog slicin’ knife”, Iowa-based Daryl Downer has transformed ordinary hot dogs into “spiralized” dogs – I love it!


SEOUL ON A STICK!

I had the chance to travel to Seoul, South Korea to shoot a bunch of segments on technology – so of course, we headed out to find bacon-wrapped hot dogs on a stick as well!

This led to another amazing discover: a hot dog that was coated with wrinkle-cut french fries – all of these sold on carts on the street!

While I was in Seoul, I also had a chance to wander through one of their street markets, where I came across dried fish hung up on ropes!

I took some video of this street market, and all of the unique food I could buy:

Back to hot dogs: do you know the old saying about them?

If You Can Make A Hot Dog, Why Not The World’s Largest?

Yes, a guy named Dan Abbate created the world’s largest hot dog, as confirmed by the Guiness Book Of World Records…

And did you know that we are NOT the only country that loves a hot dog…look at this chart!

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

#5 – 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!

Now, if you are going to enjoy a hot dog, I say go “ALL-IN” and really do it right, like this!

#4 – Behold The “Hamdog!”

That’s right, it’s a hot dog – but so much more, because it’s a hamburger as well! How could someone come up with this? More importantly, how could they NOT?

This is all kinds of funny, and #4 on my list of great hot dog moments….see the whole recipe here:

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:

#1 – “The Double Down Hot Dog!”

Now that I’ve shared my top five, let’s bite down a little deeper, like this:

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!

  1. Spiral hot dogs.What an extraordinary development. I will always gravitate toward any food that can be wrapped around the fingers for easy access while on the go.

  2. I would happily try everything on this page, John. Except that dried fish perhaps…
    No hot dogs for me today, but I am cooking a casserole tonight, and the main ingredient is Toulouse Sausages!
    Best wishes, Pete.
