Vegan Hot Dogs

Back when I ate meat, I hated hot dogs.  They grossed me out.  I just couldn't stomach eating them knowing what might or might not be in my food.  Eww.  Now that I eat vegan dogs, I'm the one grossing out all my carnivorous friends.  But really, how can you think MY hot dog is gross?  Is it because they're NOT made with beaks and buttholes?  Really???

So now that I'm vegan, I love me a hot dog.  In our local grocery stores I can buy Good Dogs and Smart Dogs.  They taste a little different from each other, but both are good and are far better for you than the "traditional" dog.  They don't have the same texture as a "meat" dog, but they are really close in taste.  Give them a try and see which you like better.  Or maybe there is another brand I haven't tried yet.  Let me know.

I don't really have a recipe tonight, just loved loading up my dog and thought I would share the pic.  I had mine with garlic powder, ketchup, spicy mustard, yellow mustard, pickle relish, sauerkraut, and jalapenos.  I skipped the onions, though, because I didn't want to have bad breath!

  1. I love Smart Dogs, and my favorite toppings are dijon mustard and vegan coleslaw (I never did develop a taste for saurkraut). Yum!
