I cant ignore the amazingness of this recipe.  As FIRST a beer lover and SECOND as a hot dog lover.  Beer Chili & Cheese Dog for IPA Day from The Beeroness.  Beer, chili, hot dog, cheese…..on and on……

Let’s start with the cooking method.  I prefer using my rice cooker but doesn’t this Nostalgia Pop-Up Hot Dog Toaster looks like a cute little addition to your small appliance arsenal?

Oh wait! What about this ‘Retro’ Hot Dog & Bun Steamer?  I mean Retro, right? I could see this at my next summer cookout.

Making your own bread will take your dogs to the next level.  Look at these beautiful Beer Pretzel Hot Dog Buns from Domestic Gothess.  Oh so good…..

Last Sunday I made for the first time a Michigan Hot Dog.  All beef hot dog smothered in a tomato based chili.  Oh yeah, it’s as awesome as it sounds. {PS. From Michigan, I didn’t even know there was such a thing!}

For me slaw is one of my favorite toppings on a hot dog.  This Carolina Style Hot Dogs from Sugar Dish Me has slaw & chili.  Wow!
