Today is National Hot Dog day! Jake rarely requests them and when he did this morning I jumped on the chance to try this recipe from A Spicy Perspective .Even though we’ve got cooler temps than last week, it’s still super humid so I declined to turn on the oven. Instead, I softened the cream cheese and loaded it inside the buns, which I then buttered and toasted on the griddle while the hot dogs were cooking. For the dressing, I quartered up the radishes and mini cukes, diced the onion, and swapped thyme for the dill. Absolutely amazing.
Huge thanks to Sommer for this excellent recipe, be sure to go check out her blog!
