Bite Sized Chicago Dogs

Mini Chicago Dogs

Before I began “Baseball Week” on the blog, I had one little boy, very special to my heart, in mind.

My friend Leanne has two of the most adorable and sweetest kids I know and they LOVE baseball!

I mean, hello cuteness!  And look at this little man all geared up for baseball season!

Seriously?  I could just scroll through her Facebook page all day looking at pics of these kids.  They are so cute and just as sweet as they can be!  I am so excited for them to visit San Diego this summer and get to hang on the beach with them!

I wanted to include a recipe dedicated to the Haynes kids because in addition to their love for baseball, unfortunately little Ryder was born with several food allergies including eggs, dairy and peanuts.

So many delicious stadium favorites include cheese or peanuts, so I set out on a mission to make something that would be fun for the kids to eat with no allergies to worry about!

Fillo Basket Chicago Dogs

Enter the “Bite Sized Chicago Dogs”!  While the kids may be Texas… or San Diego fans, the verdict is still out on that one 😉  Everyone is a fan of the delicious “Chicago Style Dog”!  Piled high with pickles, tomatoes, cucumbers and more, the Chicago Dog is an American classic!

My thought, why not combine all of the ingredients and place them in little bite sized dairy-free fillo baskets that are perfect for parties or just a fun bite-sized lunch!

Yankee Dog vs Fenway Frank

As a chef, foodie, food blogger extraordinaire, culinary creator, girl who loves to eat, whatever you want to call me, I almost hate to admit that one of my favorite foods is yes, the hot dog!

There’s something about a delicious, juicy grilled dog nestled in a nicely toasted, warm bun with a slight drizzle of ketchup that makes my mouth water every time!

While in New York I was lucky enough to attend a game at the beautiful new Yankee stadium!

First stop: obvi, hot dog and beer!

This is me, taking my “ketchup-placing-strategy” very seriously!

And now the ultimate moment has descended upon us. The time for Yankee Dog consumption.

Um ya people, that was delicious. I don’t think I even made it away from the condiment counter before the whole thing was gone and I was back in line for numero dos!

A little background on my Yankee Dog.  While downstairs at the stadium there are Nathan’s hot dogs, upstairs there are Hebrew National.  I’m telling you all, that’s the good stuff! Something about that “kosher-ness” that really makes for a delicious dog!

Just in case you’re not a dog lover like myself, never fear, Yankee Stadium has their own sushi.

Yup, they’re high-class in New York.  I mean you can’t expect Jay Z to eat a hot dog, can you?  Are you now picturing Jay Z grilling up a dog for Beyonce, because I definitely am!

But never fear Zooey Deschanel, you and the other Celiac peeps can eat at Yankee Stadium too!

All in all, a beautiful evening at the ballpark!


Two weeks later, the challenge was on. It was time for me to cross #10 off my bucket list and attend a Red Sox game at Fenway Park.

While checking this item off, I felt another blog post coming to me, the show down between the Yankee Dog and the Fenway Frank. New York vs. Boston. Yankees vs. Red Sox. Who would win in the best darn dog contest?

After eating dinner at two different restaurants prior to arrival at the game, I still felt it was my duty to take down a dog and complete the challenge. So I maneuvered my way around the most confusing sports stadium in America to find my perfect Fenway Frank.  One frank purchased, a squirt or ketchup and I was ready to go.

Chomp, chomp, chomp.

And the winner is…

The Yankee Dog, by a mile!  No offense Boston, your city won my heart, but your Fenway Frank was a disappointment!

Barely warm, no juiciness to be found and the flavor just wasn’t there!  Must be that “all beef Kosher-ness” that really puts the Yankee Dog over the top!

The battle is not over, I still must try dogs at each and every baseball stadium in America before I can name a true winner. But for now, the Yankee Dog has my heart!

Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs

Nothing beats meat wrapped in meat. And the official hot dog of Los Angeles is no exception to the rule!  Street cart vendors can be found outside of office buildings by day and outside of bars by night lining up their carts of pork wrapped pork topped with grilled peppers and onions and ready to be taken down by the citizens of Los Angeles! With the help of the LLB you can now make these delectable dogs in the comfort of your home from anywhere in world!

Ingredients (makes 2 hot dogs)

  • 2 beef or pork franks
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 red onion (sliced)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1/2 green bell pepper (sliced)
  • 1 jalapeño (sliced)
  • 2 hot dog buns

Start by wrapping each dog tightly with a slice of bacon.

Place the dogs over medium heat on the grill.

While the dogs are grillin’ cook the peppers and onions.

Add olive oil to a large skillet, add the sliced vegetables and cook over medium heat 5-7 minutes or until tender.

(If cooking these dogs up at an actual camp out, you can cook the veggies in a cast iron skillet placed directly on the grill with the dogs!)

When the dogs are almost finished grilling add the buns to the grill to give them a light toast.

Remove from the grill and place the dogs in the buns.

Next, top with the delicious and colorful grilled veggies!

Now that’s one sophisticated (and flavorful) hot dog!
