Hot dogs. I have to be honest, I am not a huge fan of them. However, I do remember eating my fair share of them as a child, especially when our family would go camping. It was so much fun to sit outside by the fire and roast my own hot dog. Something about cooking my own food over an open fire made it so much more appealing and exciting.

Hot dogs are one of the few foods my kids love to eat - all year long. So I decided it was high time we tried some variety in our mundane hot dog meals. Check out these Hot Dog inspired dishes to mix things up, create something new or just enjoy a treat! :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com

Even though I am not a huge fan, my kids and husband love them. But sometimes I want them to branch out and change things up a bit. Give them a little variety in their diet, so I thought maybe this Fall we could try some different types of hot dogs. Did you know different parts of the United States are known for various toppings on their hot dogs? They are and I’ve got a some great recipes here for you to try!
