Baseball Season; AKA Hot Dog Season!

Baseball Season; AKA Hot Dog Season!

If you are a hot dog head, then this is the post for you – you will find everything you ever wanted to know about hot dogs and more! If you came here for an article on baseball, sorry!

Another season of baseball has started. Opening day has come and that means 162 games of baseball, per team, is upon us. With that in mind, I had a huge decision to make. Do I make and post 162 days of hot dogs?? That task is a bit overwhelming, not to mention, I am still working on eating somewhat healthy; and processed, meat by-products, are not in my everyday diet. So what is a food blogger to do? A food blogger is to make a list, of course!

This post will be a long list of everything to do with hot dogs: local places to get a good hot dog; all the stadiums and their dogs; fast food joints with hot dogs on their menu; as well as some fan favourite creations; and hot dog paraphernalia, facts and other interesting hot dog related articles I came across in my research! Everything below is what I have found on the internet from my own little research project of everything hot dogs. None of these are made by me, reviewed by me and most I have not tried.

At the end of every post I am in the habit of asking you a couple questions. This time I am going to ask you these questions now, so you can think about them as you read. What are your favourite hot dog toppings? Have you tried any of the hot dogs in my list below?
