 Top Super Bowl Hot Dog tips from Greggs

Super Bowl hot dog tips from Greggs

1.        Don’t…Put hot dog toppings between the hot dog and the bun. Always “dress the dog,” not the bun.

2.        Do…ensure condiments are applied in the following order: wet condiments like mustard and ketchup are applied first, followed by chunky condiments like relish, onions and sauerkraut, followed by shredded cheese, followed by spices, like salt or pepper.

3.        Do…Eat hot dogs on buns with your hands. Utensils should not touch hot dogs on buns.

4.        Don’t…Take more than five bites to finish a hot dog.

5.        Do…Use paper plates to serve hot dogs. Every day dishes are acceptable; china is a no-no.

6.        Do…Lick away condiments remaining on fingers. Do not EVER wash off.

7.        Don’t…worry about dripping mustard on clothing, that is perfectly acceptable for this weekend of sporting fun. Plus, your eyes will surely be too glued to the TV screen at this stage in the game to even notice.

Be sure to follow these top dog tips to score the sweet (or rather savory) taste of victory this coming Super Bowl Sunday.
