Guilty Pleasure Food for Book Clubs: Hot Dogs

If you’re like me, you’re always checking out recipes and looking for great food to serve at your book club meetings. But sometimes, simple is better, both when preparing food and eating it. One way to de-stress is to set out a food bar, with lots of toppings that your readers can choose for themselves. Here’s an idea to go with any book you read that includes sports references or is about sports, as it evokes memories for many of us of cheering from the stands while we indulge in a guilty pleasure.

Hot Dogs

Choose your favorite hot dog from the grocery store. You’d be suprised at the choices, incuding some that are meatless and others that are made with organic meat and uncured. Heat each dog up on the grill for a few minutes or slide it under the broiler in your oven. Serve them on warmed hot dog buns (sesame, plain, wheat, or whatever you can find to your liking) and set out toppings like these standards:

  •  mustard
  • ketchup
  • onions
  • chili
  • pickle relish
  • pickle slices
  • grated cheddar cheese

You may want to mix it up a bit and go for a theme for toppings on your dog;
