Have you ever gone to Costco and bought a huge pack of hot dogs for a BBQ but didn’t end up finishing even one pack of them? This happened to my husband and I. We bought 30+ hot dogs for a birthday party, only to find that we probably used ten hot dogs. Soon after, I went on a trip to Ireland, and while I was gone, my husband ate Hot Dogs every day. Let’s just say he didn’t feel his best self when I came home. Instead of just eating your leftover hot dogs from the summer the same old way, here are some fantastic and creative ways to incorporate them into your cooking.

1. Race Car Hot Dogs

Add some nutrition to an otherwise salty meal by turning your little ones’ hot dog into a veggie car!
