Tallgrass Beef Hot Dogs for Memorial Day!

Memorial day is just around the corner and this year I'm excited to be hosting a cookout with close family friends as we also celebrate our 'house welcoming.' We anticipate being all settled into our home with the Baron and can't wait to start entertaining. To kick off the summer season, we're firing up our new grill and hosting guests to a hot dog party!

And because we're all about making things special for our friends, our hot dog party will be complete with a full buffet of toppings, condiments and everything they need to customize and be creative with their hot dogs. For our hot dog party, not any old hot dog will do. In fact, I've partnered up with the Tallgrass Beef Company and highlight their newest offering... the Tallgrass Frank. These are 100% grass-fed hot dogs that are gluten, hormone, preservative and pesticide free.

I typically don't buy hot dogs regularly because I haven't found one that I felt comfortable serving with the number of preservatives pumped into so many brands. And of the 'healthier' hot dog versions I have tried, they didn't as good as I hoped. So with that, having a hot dog is a treat at our house. Knowing the amount of care and attention put towards making these hot dogs healthy, I'm pleased to say they taste amazing. We tried the hot dogs for lunch the other day and even my son, Joel, declared how it was the best hot dog he's ever had! From that point on, I knew we had ourselves a hot dog winner!

After learning more about the Tallgrass Beef Company and Bill Kurtis, I began to learn more about why grassfed beef was better...not just because it tastes great but because there are some healthy advantages for us as consumers, healthy living for the cattle used to make them, the benefits to our environment and so much more. You can read more about these positive points on their website.

So if you're anticipating a cookout for memorial day or anytime this summer, definitely give Tallgrass Beef Hot Dogs (or any of their other delicious products) a try! They're all great on the grill and you'll definitely feel great enjoying them for so many reasons!
