Wednesday, July 22 was National Hot Dog Day and July is National Hot Dog Month. And yes, we all find our own unique way to celebrate:

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..but others have tried as well, even the iconic Martha Stewart:

Listen, I’m going to get a bit silly right now, but it’s not hard to do – the internet is full of funny hot dog pictures like these:

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

#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!”

To me, there nothing you can do to a Hot Dog that a Hot Dog can’t handled:

That’s why “Mustard Hot Dog Ice Cream” is a thing I would do – would you? Click here to see the recipe:

  5. I am having a Hot Dog for dinner tonite in honor of this most Sacred of Food Days. I wasn’t sure quite how I was going to prepare it until I saw your Spaghetti Dog. I think I will add a little Arrabbiata sauce with mushrooms and onions. I’ll take photos.
