California Cobb Dogs

These totally tubular hot dogs deserve a standing ovation. Try setting up the toppings on a bar to let everyone make their own!

I know what you’re thinking. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” Hear me out. Just because hot dogs are perfectly delicious on their own doesn’t mean that we can’t have a little fun with them.

You can’t tell me that you don’t get a bit tired of your typical hot dog at right about this point of the summer. I think I’ve convinced you by now.

For these hot dogs, I decided to take my FAVORITE salad and fuse it with hot dogs to make these EPIC California Cobb Dogs.

Seriously, what’s not to love? You have avocado, hard-boiled egg, and blue cheese, all of which are in my top 10 favorite foods.

They’re served with a quick lemon aioli, which is the most difficult part of this “recipe”. If you consider difficult stirring a few things in a bowl, that is.

Pin this recipe right now and then next time you have a craving for a hot dog AND a salad, break it out.
