Hebrew National Hotdogs
During the summer, my husband and I try to grill as much as possible. When the fall comes, we always say that we are going to grill but rarely get around to it once the weather starts to get cooler. We have been enjoying lots of meals on the grill this summer.

Here are some of my favorite summer grilled meals and food pairings:
-Hebrew National hotdogs with grilled onions, peppers and jalapenos (see recipe below).

-Grilled veggie burgers and grilled hashbrowns- my sister, husband and I made these last Friday and we all loved them.

-Grilled chicken with grilled summer squash packets

-Grilled tomatoes with parmesan or feta cheese as a side dish to almost any meal.

-Grilled tuscan salmon with pasta salad

-Grilled chicken parmesan with grilled green beans

-Grilled onion burgers with grilled corn with lime juice and chili powder

Hebrew National Hotdogs

This summer, I have fallen in love with Hebrew National hotdogs. Although hotdogs are not the healthiest food choice, I find them to be a must-have for some meals in the summer. This hotdogs are all beef and are kosher. They have an excellent taste and are prefect with Hunt's ketchup and Gulden's mustard.

Grilled peppers, onions and jalapenos

Hotdogs with Grilled Peppers, Jalapenos and Onions
1 medium onion, diced
1 medium green pepper, diced
1/2 medium jalapeno, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil

1. Put all ingredient on aluminum foil and create a "packet" where all ingredients are closed in.
2. Grill for 3-5 minutes on each side until vegetables are cooked and onions are browned.
3. Serve on top of a Hebrew National hotdog along with Gulden's mustard and Hunt's ketchup.

Another great addition to these hotdogs are grilled green beans.

1/2 finely diced jalapeno

1. Add all ingredients to aluminum foil and create a packet.
2. Grill for ~10 minutes on each side until green beans are cooked.

Summer grilling
This meal was tasty and incorporated many delicious summer foods. Troy and I are going to try to continue to grill at least a few times a week for the rest of the summer. There is something about that grilled flavor that is like no other.

Hebrew National Hotdogs

With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It's all about what makes the cut (and what doesn't). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts. #greatergrilling
