Thai Style Hot Dogs

Memorial Day is the kick off holiday for summer, family gatherings, picnics, beach and camping trips. While I was a young girl, every Memorial Day weekend my parents would take us camping with other family members. The tradition continued all through the years while my children were growing up.  For these type of gatherings, beef franks were a staple. Several members of my family did not eat pork so Hebrew National® Franks would be our choice for a hot dog! They are all beef, no pork, and full of delicious flavor.

Now that I am older and consider myself more adventurous in my cooking, I like to create a twist on an an American classic. I love Thai food so for Memorial Day this year I thought I would try a Thai Style Hot Dog! I have this love affair going with Peter Pan® Peanut Butter and am known for making a snack of it by just eating if off the spoon. It’s ok though because it is a wholesome snack packed with protein! It is also a perfect pick for an ingredient in my homemade peanut sauce!

Thai Style Beef Franks



This homemade peanut sauce has a little American twist with Hunt’s® Ketchup and Gulden’s Mustard as part of the ingredients in the sauce! Don’t be like Grumpy and knock it until you try it my friends because this Thai Style Peanut Sauce was so rockin’ that even Grumpy devoured them in no time flat!



Thai Style Beef Franks



I made a Thai slaw with red and white cabbage, fresh diced red bell pepper and jalapeno for a little more of a kick. Of course, I added my ever beloved fresh cilantro to the mix and then topped the grilled hot dog off with the slaw, a drizzle of peanut sauce and some chopped peanuts.

This was so delicious, I ate the same meal two nights in a row! This is a perfect fusion food for that American classic twist. You can feed a crowd of friends or family and impress them with your creativity
