Recipe: Potatoes, Peppers & Hot Dogs

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have noticed that I’m having a pretty awesome week. Justin & I finally got married in March {after 8 & a half years of dating… and a now almost-4-year-old} and so this week is our official “family honeymoon”. We are spending 4 days in San Diego & really doing the town!

We went to the San Diego Zoo Safari Park…

&We’re hitting Sea World tomorrow!

But that’s just the beginning. This is the BIGGEST thing we’re doing all summer, but we still have three months of fun ahead of us. I plan on spending a lot of time in the pool, and a lot *less* time in the kitchen. Summer is grilling season & while I love to cook, I also love to take a break & let Justin do some grilling.

Hot dogs on a bun are delicious, but they get boring eventually. So I came up with a delicious new recipe for Shane’s favorite food, and a summer staple: Hebrew National Hot Dogs!

Now, my recipe actually *does* involve cooking instead of grilling, but it’s still an easy recipe. And you really could make these in a foil packet or in a basket on the grill, but Justin didn’t want to grill the other day so I just made them on the stovetop. Either way, they’re super easy!

Potatoes, Peppers & Hot Dogs

 Potatoes, Peppers & Hot Dogs

-1 green pepper
-1 medium to large potato
-2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
-3 Hebrew National hot dogs

-Dice green peppers & potatoes
-Boil potatoes for about 4 minutes
-Heat a large saucepan &drizzle with 2 tbsp olive oil
-Heat potatoes for about 7-9 minutes, until lightly browned on all sides
-About 1-2 minutes before the potatoes are done, mix in the green peppers
-While sauteeing the potatoes & peppers, heat hot dogs according to preferred package directions {I chose to microwave them}
-Remove from heat, add hot dogs, and mix everything together
-Serve! {Hint: It’s great with ketchup}

We love Hebrew National hot dogs and enjoy them a lot in the summer. It’s an easy choice for entertaining since everyone can personalize their own with toppings so you don’t have to worry about picky eaters {like me}. &They don’t take long to make, so you can spend less time cooking & more time with your guests- or your family!
