Best Gourmet Hot Dog Toppings List | 10 Tasty Recipes and Video


Vegan Hot Dog Toppings | Hot Dogs

I know this list of 10 Gourmet Hot Dog toppings might sound wild, but honestly, they are the best toppings I’ve ever experimented with on a wiener! I know Ketchup and mustard are most people’s go-to hot dog topping, but these gourmet hot dog toppings take your wieners to the next level.

Each gourmet hot dog topping is vegan / plant-based and inspired by the flavour it’s named after (i.e. Pad Thai Topping will be like having Pad Thai on a hot dog, delicious I know).

For the actual hot dog and bun, I obviously prefer plant-based hot dogs and buns. My recommendation for alternatives is at the bottom of the list! Now let’s top those hot dogs!

These tasty recipes will turn any plain wiener into a flavourful party for your mouth! Okay, I’ll stop saying wiener now.
