Buffalo Blue Hot Dogs

Are you bored with ketchup, mustard and relish hot dogs this summer?  Variety IS the spice of life!  These Buffalo Blue Hot Dogs are inspired from a local hot dog joint back home in RI, Spike's Junk Yard Dogs.  Spikes has 8 locations throughout southern New England...so if your are in the area look them up!

So, once your dogs are cooked according to your favorite method you can get to work on the assembly line (normally I would grill our hot dogs, our grill is broken down for traveling purposes...I boiled them this time).

Fist, start out with the dogs and bun selection.  I used a soft, sesame topped hoagie bun for these babies.  I'm going to be loading them up, a normal hot dog-sized bun just won't work here.  We were so excited to find Nathan's brand dogs up this way - they were definitely put to good use here.

Next, slice up some red onions and fresh deli-style dill pickles.  At this point, I highly recommend taste-testing a pickle, just to ensure its integrity.  Now is where I might loose some of you......blue cheese.  You either like it, or you don't.  I have shared, HERE, how we came to enjoy it - splattering a 5lb tub of it on yourself might have the same effect on you, no?

Now that you you have all the toppings lined up, they can be individually made according to your preferences.  S requests heavier on the hot sauce, heavier on the blue cheese, and extra pickles....yeah, he's high maintenance!

Begin hot dog assembly now!  Grab a few napkins, these dogs are messy!!

Buffalo Blue Hot Dogs
makes 8 hot dogs

1 package of hot dogs, 8ct
1 package of soft hoagie rolls, 8 ct
1 small red onion, thinly sliced
4 fresh deli pickle halves, thinly sliced 
4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
hot sauce, to taste
blue cheese dressing, to taste

Cook the hot dogs according to the manufacturer's recommendations.  

Nestle the dogs into the buns.  Dividing the onion, pickles and blue cheese crumbles amongst the hot dogs - tuck the sliced red onions and sliced pickles down between the sides of the dog and the bun, and crumble the blue cheese along the tops.  Add an appropriate amount of hot sauce (we use Frank's Red Hot) and blue cheese salad dressing. Add a few more onions and pickles, if desired.
