Ballpark Hot Dogs

Ballpark Hot Dogs Recipe - SavvyMom

It’s tough to beat the perfection of a ballpark hot dog. Somehow the flavour of the wiener is infused into the bun, which is impossibly soft without being mushy or squishy? I’ve often thought it must be the atmosphere or the heat or the combination of other snacks and soft drinks that makes ballpark hot dogs taste so good. Turns out, it’s actually easy to replicate the deliciousness at home, possibly easier than any way you’ve been making hot dogs at home.

Keep the condiment options simple and apply (relatively) sparingly. This is an ideal food option for a lunchtime birthday party.

This formula is also reminiscent of IKEA and Costco hot dogs as well.
