Time for a #Wienervention!

My kids love hot dogs. BUT, it is scary to think about what is actually in a regular hot dog!
I was so thrilled when Applegate asked me to be part of their #Wienervention campaign! I want to serve my family hot dogs free of added nitrites or chemical preservatives and with ingredients - but hot dogs they would still love.

This is the amazing #Wienervention kit Applegate generously sent me and I cannot tell you how excited everyone was! Even my pickiest eater wanted a hot dog "right now, Mom!" So it was time to turn on the grill and let everyone pick their favorite toppings!

  • Even though the hot dogs looked a little different than the fair hot dogs no one was deterred and everyone had an amazing time choosing the toppings they wanted! I noticed right away that the hot dogs cooked much better then regular hot dogs and they did not burst or bubble! They tasted a lot "meatier" according to my kids and everyone wanted seconds! And with 4 simple ingredients (beef, water, salt and spices) it is good to know what actually IS in your hot dog!
  • We also loved the Rudi's Organic Bakery hot dog buns! They truly were the best hot dog buns EVER! We will never go back to squishy rolls again. They were big enough to fit two hot dogs (German Style) or an Italian sausage plus toppings and they did not get soggy or break! They crisped up nicely on the grill and my family loved them. We also tried the Rudi's Organic Bakery Gluten Free hot dog buns and I have to say that those were truly the besat GF buns we have had so far! A must try!
  • What about the toppings? We really enjoyed Annie's ketchup and mustard and we will be on the look out for the whole line! They are organic and GF and made with simple ingredients. You cannot ask for more! We also fell in love with Rick's Picks relish and it's a new favorite in our fridge!
  • Susty Party also provided paper straws and napkins to round out the party and we love that they are compostable, non-toxic, renewable and made in North America!!
