Winner: Comment #16!
Over the holiday weekend, hot dogs were a popular menu item, as was chips and dip. They're perfect for gatherings, easy to make for guests and well, what would summer be without a hot dog or chips and dip?! As much as I enjoy a hot dog, I like topping them with various ingredients to keep them exciting. Some ways I enjoy them is 'dragged through the garden,' which is a term used to describe the iconic Chicago hot dog. It's topped with chopped raw onions, a slather of yellow mustard, shredded lettuce, tomato slices, a sprinkling of celery salt, neon green sweet pickle relish, pickled sport peppers, and a dill pickle spear. Another easier way I like my hot dog is with a slather of mustard and a sprinkling of french fried onions. For the onions, nothing beats Onion Crunch and it's this week's Sunday Fun Day Giveaway!
Onion Crunch — crispy and fried made from fresh onions which have specially been developed from onion varieties. They are peeled, washed, cut and battered in order to create a perfect crispy onion. Then they are fried in high-quality vegetable oil to give them an absolute delicious taste.
They are sprinkled or used in small quantities to bring crispiness and a roasted onion flavor to salads, sandwiches, dips, soups, spreads, baked potatoes, pizza, hotdogs and burgers.
I first learned about Onion Crunch at the National Restaurant Association trade show I attended a couple months ago and that's when I started putting Onion Crunch on top of hot dogs. What took me so long to find this!? It's absolutely delicious and I love the flavor and crunchy texture it adds to the usual all beef hot dog. I mentioned chips and dip earlier and I also used Onion Crunch to make a variation of this Onion Dip.
Owner and founder of Onion Crunch, Nick Loeb, is generously sponsoring this week's giveaway and a lucky reader will be receiving a package of Onion Crunch! You'll be able to try it over hot dogs, on top burgers (especially with blue cheese and mushrooms - yum!), over salads, in dips, etc. They're so many ways to use this and all of them are delicious!
