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.

Baby Countdown Enters Final Days - The Creation Of Us (S1:E7)

** OGTV's first The Creation Of Us (S1) playlist story of the week follows Aydian and Jenilee as they enter the final planning stages for the birth of their baby! **

What is more dramatic than the dwindling days before the birth of a couple's first child? In this episode of The Creation Of Us, the countdown is on as Aydian and Jenilee scramble to learn all they have to know about childbirth and being parents.

Although there is much to do, the parents-to-be are pretty organized. First, they sit down with their doula to come up with a day of birth and postpartum plan. They discuss their ideas for keeping Jenilee comfortable, and create checklists and guidelines to help manage all the details. Afterward, they are off to a birthing class where they go through what the actual birth will be like.

"The birthing class always makes me feel so much more secure about giving birth," Jenilee relates. "It's comforting to be developing a toolbox so I have things to grab from when the birth actually happens." Aydian has concerns and questions and their birthing teacher, Sarah, walks them through different techniques for the actual birth and things they can practice at home.

After the birthing class, they meet with their midwife for the first time. While a little nervous about a first meeting with someone so integral to the birth, Jenilee and Aydian are very excited to have both a doula and a midwife on board. "Jenilee and I chose to have a midwife because the birth process is so intimate," Aydian notes. "Our plan is to birth in a place that doesn't feel like a hospital. Ideally, if we are in a birthing center that makes us feel like we are in our own home, we can give that to ourselves and our child for the first moments of birth."

Jenilee and Aydian hope that if they are able to follow their plan, it will make the birth feel less medical and more spiritual, true to who they are as a couple. The clock is ticking – join them as they start the final countdown to the biggest day of their lives.
