Fall is the time for football, outdoor gatherings, festivals, and grilling. It’s a time where families and friends come together around a campfire and tell stories from the past. The commonality between these events is the food. We often bring goodies to enjoy while spending time with others and one particular food that is consumed by many is hot dogs. As good tasting as some think hot dogs are, they can be filled with many unwanted ingredients and additives. I am not just talking about meat hot dogs either. I am also talking about those that are labeled vegetarian and vegan too.
I asked myself, why am I putting these ingredients into my body when I don’t even know what half of them are. Just for the taste? I decided to look for something that would keep my digestive system happy and as close to whole food as I could get. I didn’t think it was possible until I found these gems. I came across this recipe from Xander Friendly Foods. I actually made this recipe very similar to the original. The only changes I made was omitting some of the seasonings as they don’t work well with my dietary needs.
