Weddings and Hot Dogs

On my recent trip back to Hawaii, I was blessed to be a member of my friends wedding party. Oliver, Ruth and I go way back, and it was a special chapter in our lives as friends and I was honored to be there for them. During this trip, I had a little alone time and went out to see what all the fuss is about these Hawaiian Hot Dog Stands. Apparently, Hot Dogs are a big deal on the islands. Each hot dog stand has its own signature style of dressings. Some of these relishes were hot and spicy, some were sweet and fruity; but by the end of my trip on Hawaii, I became hooked on Hawaiian Hot Dogs!

As a Dad Cooking Blogger, I had many conversations with these Hot Dog Stand owners and was able to collect some topping recipes.  I decided to bring back some of these recipes and transplant them to your home. So the next time you want to make hot dogs, bring the Hawaiian Islands into your home and make some of these Hawaiian Hot Dog toppings.
