Mushroom Swiss Melt Dog

A different day, a different dog! This is another great idea from Dougie Dog from Vancouver, Canada. I’ve never been there, but I caught the truck on an episode of Eat Street and instantly knew that I was going to have to make my take on some of their dogs, like this mushroom Swiss melt dog.

Mushroom Swiss Melt DogYou can’t go wrong with the combination of grilled, woodsy mushrooms, smokey bacon, Swiss and the kick of Dijon mustard. This is a mighty fine dog, easy to make, and definitely different.

I get my hot dog buns from our local bakery, Taylor’s. Their buns blow the store-bought ones away by a country mile. Why make a fru-fru dog and put it on a poo-poo bun? Oh, I might have to trademark that saying…
