10 Hot Dogs You Must Try For Memorial Day

What comes to mind when we think of Memorial Day is the inevitable barbeque. Whether it's at your house or at Great Aunt Sally's, the main course will most definitely involve hot dogs in some way. While some of us are content with the traditional dog with mustard and/or ketchup, some of us need more variety in our lives. Here are 10 hot dogs combos that you can try at your Memorial Day barbeque:

1. Chili and Nacho Cheese

Find recipe on: 1CupAwesome

Nothing too crazy to start us off but this combination, popularly referred to as the 'Chili Cheese Dog,' will tantalize your taste buds and give you something different than your usual dog. Delicious

2. Philly Cheesesteak (Grilled Onions, Cheese, Thinly sliced steak)

Find recipe on: BlogChef.net

Cheesesteak? On a hot dog? That's crazy talk. Or is it? Don't be silly, it's probably amazing. Just look at that picture. You can't go wrong with steak.

3. Reuben (Sauerkraut, Russian Dressing, Melted Swiss Cheese)

Find recipe on: Serious Eats

Some people already put sauerkraut on hot dogs so why not spice it up with this New York deli classic? If you don't like sauerkraut, you can add coleslaw. Either way, all signs point to this being a good idea.

4. The "Hollywood"

Find recipe on: Times of India

The Times of India refer to this as the "Hollywood Dog." I'm not sure why, but it caught my attention. After reading the list of ingredients, it caught my appetite. Click the link in the caption to see what I'm talking about. YUM.

5. Buffalo Wing (Hot Sauce, Blue Cheese dressing, Celery)

Find Recipe on: Noble Pig

Do I really need to talk this one up? Nope, I don't.

6. Southern (Barbeque Sauce, Melted American, Bacon, Onion Straws)


This one might provide you a trip to the hospital but at least it provided you with savory goodness first. Found the ingredients to this bad boy, colloquially referred to as the "White Trash Wedding Hot Dog," on Yelp: Beer cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce, fried onion straws on an all-beef hot dog. Amazing.

7. BLT (Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato)

Find recipe on: Kraft

A BLT is already half of a sandwich. Why not add a hot dog to that other half?

8. Mac and Cheese

Taste and Tell Find recipe on: Taste and Tell

If you were to ask me what mac and cheese ISN'T good with I would show you nothing because mac and cheese is delicious with everything. Case dismissed.

9. California (Avocado, Red Onion, Alfalfa sprouts)

Find recipe on: Eating Well

For those health fanatics out there, this is the dog for you. Filled with some nutritious ingredients, this should give off the impression that you're hanging out on a boardwalk in Southern California (or not, I have no control of what you do while you eat).

10. Hawaiian (Pineapple, Red Onion, Barbeque Sauce)

Find recipe on: Taste and Tell

This dog allows you to have a Hawaiian vacation right in your backyard (or your Great Aunt Sally's). The three main ingredients blend in such a way that you can't help but love it.

Blind Waiter Serves Up Diner Classics and Life Lessons

** As we wind down to the final days of this difficult year, OGTV is tipping our hat to all of the essential workers on the front lines with this uplifting story about a New Jersey man who has found a way to do this difficult job for years, even without his eyesight! **

The flickering neon sign reflects eerily off the aging, chrome exterior; a long smooth marble counter with spinning stools draws your gaze left and right as you enter; the checkered linoleum floor seeps under the rows of back-to-back leather booths enveloped by the rain streaked wrap-around windows. You may think you've entered a typical American roadside eatery, but your experience here will be anything but ordinary.

You have just stepped into the Bendix Diner, a staple in Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey since the 1940's. It's no surprise that The Bendix can serve up a sizzling Burger with deep fried onion rings and a frothy chocolate shake. What is unique about this meal is the waiter who delivers it to your table – his name is John Diakakis, and he is blind.
