Have an idea for a BBQ party with friends and family this summer, just wondering what kind of interesting/unique/bizarre hot dog toppings everyone has done or tried?
They're U shaped and rather sturdy and taste a bit like a Hawaiian bread.
Some stores don't have them where they stock buns, but rather in the bakery near the pita bread..sometimes you have to request them to stock and they'll keep them in the freezer for requests.
Scroll down below the recipe to the Comments section for reader's good ideas.
For condiments: recommend Sweet & Savory Tomato Jam by Jennifer Perillo.
It's not "unique or bizarre," but definitely an addictive replacement to ketchup.
Some might disagree, but you can cook this up perfectly well using canned whole tomatoes, drained of sauce (Hunt's plum or Muir Glen organic), since garden tomatoes aren't available yet.
Am thinking anything with mustard, pickled veggies would also be great. Or an Asian sweet-sour slaw that could be lobbed into a hot dog bun.
