Now THIS is a hot dog. You’ve got your smoky crispy bacon. There’s sauteed sweet onions and mushrooms. And cheese. Add a grilled all-beef dog (or your hot dog of choice) and you’ve got a Cowboy hot dog you can not only enjoy, but be proud of.
You don’t really need any condiments to top off your Cowboy hot dog. Dijon mustard would be great, if you have to. Or BBQ sauce. But really, they’re great just as they are.
My German cowboy hots dogs aren’t anything to sneeze at either!
