13 Incredible Hot Dog Toppings

A squirt of ketchup on your hot dog is such a summertime snoozefest! Instead serve these traditional-with-a-twist and out-of-the-bun topping ideas at your next backyard BBQ:

Bacon

Sonoran-style hot dogs, like these bacon-wrapped babies, are legal fare in Tucson, Arizona and neighboring Sonora, Mexico. But does pork on pork violate some Instagram food porn law?

Steak

We can’t decide if this is a Philly cheesesteak with a side of hot dog or vice versa. Either way, Cheez Whiz is like the cherry atop this meaty sundae.

Mac 'n' Cheese

Remember when your mom used to add cut-up hot dogs to your SpaghettiO’s? This is way better.

Mango

We never thought we would describe a hot dog as pretty, but this colorful fruit salsa really dresses up a humble tube steak.

Everything but the Kitchen Sink

You might need a knife and fork to tackle one of these wideload Colombian-style dogs, which are smothered in coleslaw, pineapple sauce, ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard and crushed potato chips, of course.

Onions

You might need to raise your pinkie to eat these fancy franks topped with caramelized onions and shredded Gruyere cheese.

Mustard

In Chicago, they like their weiners with sport peppers, tomatoes, dill pickles, and a swipe of yellow mustard only. Ketchup is a big no-no in the Windy City.

Relish

Trade that neon green stuff in a jar for your own homemade version. It’ll earn you major grilling cred in the hood.

Avocado

This makes us want to start dipping dogs in our guac instead tortilla chips. Is that wrong?

Corn

It’s not the battered, deep-fried kind, but this “corn dog” is still covered in yumminess.
