Growing up I always loved going to game nights where I knew there would be meatballs and mini hotdogs. Those meatballs and mini hotdogs were often cooked in a concoction of grape jelly and bbq sauce and the pigs in a blanket were wrapped in crescent roll dough! While you won't find bbq sauce, grape jelly or crescent rolls in my recipe below. You will find a food that's reminiscent of my childhood and uses quality protein and coconut sugar. This is great for a game night, a barbecue, or the Super Bowl!
One thing to consider when you are purchasing hot dogs is to think about the sourcing, ingredients, and watching out for nitrates and nitrites. Hot dogs can often be a source of low quality and a random mixture of meats. I love Fork in The Road's mini dogs for their quality standards in traceability, sourcing, and meat.
