Hot Dog Party: Oroshi, Terimayo, Chili Cheese, Pineapple Madras

We have been really, really lazy to cook for the past couple of months so not much to report from here, unfortunately.

We did have a hot dog party a couple of months ago, but we did make the job easier by buying -- well, hot dogs, of course, from the store.

We had three different types of dogs: all-beef frankfurters, bratwursts, and jalapeño cheese smokies. These are all standard issue dogs from any mainstream superstore.

I know, I know, I got my meat grinder already but I haven't opened the box yet. The grinder attachment and stuffer have been sharing space with my computer here on my desk.

We did try to dress up the party by having different toppings for the dogs. It's mix and match to get the dog you want.

We also had regular ol' condiments available, as well as lightly pickled Japanese cucumbers, just because Mama and CSC love them.

All-beef frankfurters, bratwursts, and jalapeño cheese smokies.

Look at Them Dogs!
Of course, everyone was free to mix-and-match toppings as they saw fit, but here are four dogs we made as "suggestions" to the guests. ;)

Chili Cheese Dog

All-beef Frank or Jalapeño Cheese Smokie + Chili + Sautéed Onions + Grated Cheddar

I am a chili cheese dog gal myself. Drool.


Any dog, brushed with teriyaki while grilling + Teriyaki Mayo + Nori (Seaweed)

What's a Vancouver hot dog party without ripping-off some Japadogs? ;)

(Yes, I know I could've shredded the nori more finely, but I was feeling lazy, as usual.)


Try a brat here (although all-beef frank is pictured).
Brat + Sautéed Cabbgae + Grated Daikon + Teriyaki + Green Onions

The other Japadog rip-off, except we added sautéed cabbage and used teriyaki sauce instead of their "special soy sauce" that was too, too salty.

Pineapple Madras

Brat + Pineapple Madras Curry Mayo + Sautéed Onions + Green Onions

Here we are trying to be creative. ;)

I certainly had fun mixin' and matchin' dogs. My father, not big fan of dogs, even said, "Wow, I never knew hot dogs could be a meal in itself."

  1. Ooh, great idea. But assembling all those toppings is a lot of work, not for the lazy! ;)

  2. I've been wanting to throw a hot dog party for awhile mainly because I have an idea for a banh mi dog.

  3. We've had a few Hot Dog party before (it was a blast). Will try a couple of your condiment suggestions...looks interesting...
    If you like yummy 'beef brisket' try ours at the Richmond Night Market...the one selling 'green tea soft ice cream...come visit us....

  4. Mmm I just tried japadog for the first time yesterday. Now you need to recreate the fries. ;)

  5. Now that is a tasty looking collection of hot dogs!

  6. I don't have hot dogs/franks that often and I usually just go for the boring mustard...but these toppings look so fun. I think I need to make (or get invited to) a hot dog party.

  7. This is such a great summer party idea!

  8. Oooooh, now I really really really want a bbq! A hot dog party sounds amazing!!!

  9. Major props for the oroshi-dog. All of them look good!!!


  10. This is awesome!!! I love the idea of a hot dog party!

  11. Wandering Chopsticks:
    Yeah, I know. Good thing JS did most of it. ;)

    Oooh, a banh mi hot dog party is a great idea.

    eat me delicious:
    I've never had their fries, actually.


    I think "get invited to" is the better deal. ;)

    Thanks! =)

    Do it! Hold a hot dog party! =D

    Thanks! =)
