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!
