|It's Hot Dogs...and|
We have the good fortune of having the place that makes the absolute best hot dogs in the world (really, in the world!) right here in Chicago – Romanian Kosher! When my cousins come in from NY one of the “must-go-to” places is Romanian. We like to tease them a lot about that – what…no butchers in
?? Well, Romanian is that good!! I was in Romanian the other day getting hot dogs for our upcoming barbecue and was very excited that they had not only their classic, outstanding hot dogs but the big fat garlic ones as well…YUM!! We also have a great all kosher store called Hungarian Kosher which gets in a lot of different types of hot dogs and sausages which they carry in their freezer section, so fun! I also got a few assorted packages of those as well. NEW YORK
Now when I was at Kosherfest last year, I had the opportunity to sample a lot of different types of sausages and hot dogs. The key word here is sample. Since I have a pretty good selection of hot dogs and sausages for our barbecue this weekend, and I really, really, really want to eat them all without getting too ill – the thought came to me: What if instead of eating a whole dog of each variety, I ate a sample of each one like at Kosherfest? So, the lightbulb moment occurred, and the concept of HOT DOG KABOBS was born! With a Hot Dog Kabob, you could put different varieties of hot dogs and sausages together, get a taste of each one, and not have dog overload. Dog gone it - what a great idea! I also figured that you could do some more exotic type kabobs – I even made one with apple sausages and pineapple chunks! The only regret I had was not soaking the skewers before grilling the kabobs…did you know that wood burns when exposed to fire? Not one of my better moments – but easily rectified the next time…
