National Hot Dog Day #NationalHotDogDay

I like my hot dogs grilled the best and almost burnt. Not to mention, I like mine either plain or with just chili and cheese.  Sometimes I like to roast them in the oven too. However, I am not big on eating them if they are boiled, but I still do. I just prefer grilled or roasted in the oven. Sometimes even deep-fried ones are good too.

Sonic has one of my favorite hot dogs the Chili Cheese Coney. I also like the pretzel bun hot dogs too.

According Days of the Year they have this to say.

A day for parades, events, and hotdogs in abundance. Celebrated all over the world, National Hot Dog Day is an opportunity to raise money for charities whilst combining large quantities of sausages, bread, ketchup, mustard and onions.
