This week’s episode is brought to you by Breyers® CarbSmart
We almost called this episode “The One When Meghan Comes Around on Hot Dogs,” but decided that it doesn’t do our conversation justice. It’s not just that Meghan has come around on serving a hot dogs with mustard or ketchup for dinner. It’s also that she, like Stacie, is SOLD and, together, we share tons of ideas for turning hot dogs into delicious, creative dinners that are as fun and delicious as they are easy.

Hot Dog, Hot Dog, Hot Diggety Dog
We are here for heating dogs and throwing them on the table, unadorned, for the quickest Hail Mary dinner ever. But you know what else? We also love hot dogs enough to also spend extra money on handmade links from our butchers and to take a few extra minutes to dress them up in creative ways.
This week, we talk about our favorite hot dog preparations and toppings, from simple ketchup to elotes. We go so deep, that we share ideas to make hot dogs an easy, convenient and delicious-for-everyone dinner option for weeks to come.
