I can't even remember the last time I had a beef hot dog — even when I was eating meat. But with veganism on the rise, it's no wonder companies are turning out creative meatless hot dog options. Now I can load up a vegan hot dog with all my favorite condiments and feel like I'm eating a real hot dog — minus the guilt! If you've gone vegan or you'd just like a healthier alternative to regular hot dogs, here are some different brands to try out!
Whenever I find myself drunk and hungry in San Francisco's Mission District, I hurry over to the stand selling hot dogs wrapped in bacon. According to my sister, this delicious hot dog — topped with caramelized onions, mustard, and ketchup with a grilled jalapeño on the side — is a specialty of Mexico. Wherever it's from, it's pure porky heaven. What do you think? Would you eat this bacon-wrapped hot dog?
I don't know many people who would turn down a free hot dog on a sunny afternoon. I wouldn't, and none of these people did. The offer was too good to refuse, but it was also too good to be true. Watch what happens when these folks are led to believe that the chef took the name "hot dog" a little too literally. Cruel much?
