Hot Diggity Dogs… Aloha Hula Hot Dogs Y’all!

Aloha Hula Hot Dogs

Published in Carolina Country Magazine May 2018

Fun Food!  That’s what hot dogs are… and sometimes, nothing will do but a hot dog when the craving comes upon us.  Now I’m definitely a fan of a good simple hot dog, made with this vintage Zebulon recipe from the old Kannon’s Cafe. But it’s also fun to do something outside the box with my dogs. These Aloha Hula Hot Dogs are a little out there… with sweet n’hot Mango Slawsa scattered over them.  But y’all…. so scrumptious!  Surprise your guests and offer up some of these fun dogs.  They’re great for the backyard or tailgating too! 

Be sure to make some authentic Hawaiian Macaroni Salad to enjoy with these dogs too. 

Aloha y’all!
