  1. Why slash: It prevents yucky shriveled hot dogs!
  2. Make a toppings buffet: Load it with all your favorites mustard, ketchup, bbq sauce, relish, jalapeno slices, chopped onion (I like white or purple), pickles, bacon bits, or sauerkraut,
  3. Let's Talk Turkey: I love making my turkey dogs using this recipe. It's a great way to cut down a bit on cholesterol and saturated fat. Of course, beef or a combo of beef and pork hot dogs work just as well.
