Let’s talk carrots!
I personally buy almost 2lbs of carrots a week so I’m no stranger to them. I roast them, my son eats them raw, and I juice them every day. However, I had seen the carrot dog concept about a year or so ago and had still yet to explore it. Since you can absolutely derive a hot dog like flavor from just sauces etc, I knew that it was worth my time.
I was absolutely right!
If eating a carrot hot dog sound off-putting, just image what’s in a real hot dog and mentally go there lol. I promise, as a true foodie, I was actually impressed by all the components of these carrot dogs! Bonus, they also pack fiber and more nutrients than any meat or faux hot dog you’ll find.
What’s great about these dogs? Everything. The recipes is cheap, easy, the marinade is flavorful, these are perfect for any season or reason, filling, kid friendly, you can grill them or put them on a griddle, you can switch up the marinade and make it your own, the options are endless in terms of toppings, and just such a win in my book!
