I prefer hot dogs that seem less ‘watery’. Nathan’s now available in my Wegmans. The lettuce is a great idea instead of a mediocre hot dog roll.



I am at the point now where I will not buy any hot dogs except Nathan's. I used to buy the cheap hot dogs but as I get older I appreciate the flavor of Nathan's over saving a couple of dollars. I probably only buy hot dogs two or three times a year.

Hebrew National hotdogs are really good

My Safeway carries a bunch of different Nathan's hot dogs but not my favorite- the bigger than the bun type. It's just as well as they are terrible for me. Sabretts, Hebrew National or Nathans are the only ones I will eat. Grilled or microwaved, with a toasted bun and spicey mustard.

During my recent RV travels
I visited Montgomery Alabama
Wandered around downtown
Came to a historic sign marker in front of an old restaurant

Chris Hot Dogs
established 1917

I had to have one. They've been serving them for over 100 years
It was pretty good. Ate it safely at an outdoor table.

I’ve never understood why anyone would eat a hot dog

If you must eat tubular get a grilled sausage. So many great varieties and made from recognizable meat

What else would you slice up to mix with Kraft Mac n Cheese?

I’ve never had a Sabrett’s not from a NYC street vendor! Every December I go to NYC for a conference, and before my expensive NYC restaurant dinner I always eat ‘one with’, meaning mustard, sauerkraut, and onions. Yum. For my 5 single years I would buy a large pack of hot dogs, often alternating between Hebrew National and Nathan’s. Yum.
Always broiled.

They haven't been called that in years - ever since Nathan's changed the size of its regular hot dogs from 2 ounces to 1.5 (and replaced the package of four quarter-pound franks with five 2.4-ouncers), they're called "Bun-Length" now.

The only "cheap" brand that I like is Kirkland. As for Hebrew National vs. Nathan's, I find that Nathan's can withstand a microwave better.

As for what I ate today: leftovers of what I believe is called a "tuna stack," consisting of:
Low-carb taco-size spinach tortilla
Alfredo sauce
Can of tuna
Spinach
2/3 cup of Italian cheese blend (mozzarella, provolone, asiago, parmesan, romano)
Another tortilla, more sauce, another can of tuna, more spinach, more cheese
Repeat two more times; top with a fifth tortilla and the remaining sauce from the jar
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes

An internet search shows several supermarkets offering the bigger than the bun dogs in eight packs weighing 14 ounces. They used to be a full pound, but Nathan's website does not list them. Curious.
The bun length have a different casing than the BTTN ones, or at least they used to.
Eating more than one causes my ankles to swell, and who can eat only one.
