It's MLB season and American baseball is a big thing to a lot of people. Folks everywhere are celebrating by gathering with friends and family to tailgate and grill outdoors. The great thing about tailgating is that you can go all out and do it big, or you can keep it nice and simple. Today, I'm sharing how to create a simple hot dog bar along with tailgate tips to make the most out of your day.
Tailgating is mostly about the food, and of course the company too! Nothing is easier to grill up than some tasty hot dogs. I'm an all-beef kind of gal when it comes to hot dogs and Nathan's Famous? Beef Franks are my favorite because they are premium quality and made with 100% beef. Their original flavor tastes amazing! In fact, Nathan's Famous Beef Franks and Snapple? sure pair perfectly for a grand slam duo! You can even save a few bucks when you buy them both at Meijer with this mPerks digital coupon.
DEAL: Save $2 when you buy any one Snapple 6-PK and one package of Nathan's Famous Beef Franks between 5/20-6/16.
How to put together a simple hot dog bar
Hot dog bars are great because people like to load their "dogs" up with different types of toppings and you can really let your imagination run wild. We like things like bacon bits, relish and onions on our hot dogs and you certainly can't forget the cheese. Ketchup and mustard of course, are staples too. Grab some little hot dog trays and set those out on a platter filled with buns and hot dogs; then surround them with your toppings. It's super easy to make a simple hot dog bar and it will surely be a crowd pleaser.
You can keep the spread simple by adding in some chips and a side salad. Don't forget to set out extra Nathan's Famous hot dogs and buns because those are really the star of the show. All of that tasty food will sure make you thirsty, so have some Snapple tea on hand and make sure you've got enough to share! Then dig in and enjoy.
