Did you know that July is National Hot Dog Month? And if that wasn’t reason enough to celebrate this American tradition, you can use National Hot Dog Day on July 23rd as your excuse. Take advantage of the beautiful summer weather by grilling outdoors as often as you can.

There are many ways to top a hot dog, and much debate on which is best; but there are two essential ingredients that can make or break a hot dog – the bun and the meat. By starting off with high-quality, great tasting hot dogs and buns, you can be sure that no matter the toppings, you have the start of a great dish.

First – let’s talk about the bun. Much more than just a hot dog transporting tool, a good roll can take your dish to the next level. Martin’s Long Potato Rolls add a softness and subtle sweetness that is the perfect contrast to the crunch and saltiness of a good hot dog. Plus – they’re sturdy enough to hold whatever toppings you choose to pile on, with a unique “hinge” to keep everything from falling apart.

Next up – the meat! No matter how skilled of a grill-master you are, the key is to choose a delicious and flavorful hot dog that will really stand out. Hatfield Franks are the perfect choice for all of your grilling needs! Hatfield Quality Meats is a family-owned company headquartered in Hatfield, PA, with high standards and a desire for quality.
