A couple of weeks ago our awesome neighbors invited us over for the first neighborhood BBQ of spring and made these delicious grilled stuffed peppers with a Jalapeno Artichoke Dip from Costco.
I was inspired and came home to make my own Jalapeno Artichoke Dip Stuffed Peppers with an easy, homemade dip recipe! I then proceeded to make these peppers three different times in two weeks, in Oklahoma, on Cinco De Mayo and to make and share on the blog.
They’re such an easy summer party appetizer to prep ahead of time and toss on the grill when guests begin to arrive!
Mediterranean grilled vegetables, pita bread & feta cheese are served with an assortment of hummus varieties on a delicious veggie & hummus plate!
For today’s post, I partnered up with my friends at Sabra Hummus to share this tasty Mediterranean platter filled with grilled vegetables and Sabra Hummus!
One of my favorite things about grilling is the camaraderie around it. You get your friends and family together, fire up the grill and spend all day outside soaking up the sun with wonderful conversation and great food.
Between the burgers and brats, it’s time for the “unofficial meal” of the day, and that’s where Sabra Hummus, and this Mediterranean Grilled Vegetable Platter comes into play!
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 this recipe 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 grilling, 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!
