bahn mi hot dogs

Now that August is here, it is time for hot dog dinner part II. Only one more month of acceptable hot dog eating! ;)

Remember the tijuana dogs? They were amazing, but when I saw this recipe inspiration, for a fresher, dare I say lighter, hot dog I knew it is how our last two grass-fed beef hot dogs would meet their bun.

We love real bahn mi sandwiches so I was honestly a little nervous that these wouldn’t live up to them and while they are different…these were really good. I know, I usually say that about anything that comes in contact with sriracha mayo, but I really mean it. Think spicy, smoky, crunchy and fresh flavors, all sandwiched between good bread.

I served them alongside a spicy cucumber salad, which was the perfect accompaniment.

    Yum, that’s an awesome idea for a hot dog! I’m usually pretty traditional (seeing as I live in Chicago and all) with my dog toppings, but I’m always willing to venture out. And I agree- anything with Sriracha mayo is probably going to rock your face. :)

      I’m still trying to perfect it – my Mom’s friend made some at a party that was cucumbers, hot peppers, rice vinegar, little sugar and tiny bit of fish sauce. They were like spicy pickles!

    Don’t you love Eating Well? And have you been to the Bahn Mi restaurant on campus? I have been there several times to get bubble tea, but never eaten there. I will have to try it after seeing your creation!

    I am really not a hot dog person but I’ve got to figure out a way to make bahn mi. Theres an awesome food truck in DC that sells the sandwiches at lunch that I am obsessed with (they also have pho… it makes my dreams come true).

    I’m making pork and pate bahn mi’s for dinner tonight! If I don’t have the energy to do all that pickling and marinating and waiting, I may just have to make these instead!
