Buffalo Style Hot Dogs

Hot Diggity Dog!  These Buffalo Style Hot Dogs are kicked up a notch with a creamy spicy sauce that takes this American classic to a whole new level!  Super easy, perfect for summer time grilling and topped with good stuff - a bit tangy with the blue cheese and a bit of crunch with the celery.  You'll be the top dog in the house when you serve these to your family :)

How do you like your dogs prepared?  I can enjoy mine two ways and they are totally different!  My most favorite way is grilled, black all over, on a grilled bun with ketchup.  I love when the skin is crunchy when I take a bite.  If grilling is not an option, then I prefer them either boiled or nuked and served with mustard with dill relish on a soft bun. So different - yes - but both so good. We also always go for beef - no turkey for us, but those would work as well.

Back in my husband's hometown, he grew up with Jimmy Dogs.  If you are around the Easton PA area, these were around forever (and I think still are).  I remember when we first started dating and went to visit his folks.  He said we were going for Jimmy Dogs.  I had no idea what he was talking about.  The place was super small, not much of a menu, but oh boy did people line up for these hot dogs.  They are boiled in oil, placed on a soft bun with a smear of mustard, a pickle spear and topped with onions and rolled in a piece of tin foil.  Once I took a bite, I could see why the place was so popular and I would always order two with a chocolate milk.  They were super tasty!

Today's dogs were inspired by our love of buffalo wings and experimenting a bit with a new recipe.  The sauce is the star of the show and even makes a great dip for chips.  Enjoy!  Wouldn't these be perfect for game day too?  I think so.
