Both my dad and husband love hot dogs. When I ask them to request a meal for their birthdays or Father’s Day, it’s a given at least one of them will ask for hot dogs.
But as many of us know, conventional processed meats can be a little scary. So when heeding the requests of my favorite fathers, I’m careful to choose hot dogs that most closely resemble real food. I look for brands I really trust and ingredients I can understand.
Applegate makes my favorite hot dog – The Great Organic Hot Dog – but a few other brands offer tasty & sustainably-produced options too. Below is a list of the best hot dogs for summer. By “the best,” I mean the most natural, humanely-farmed hot dogs that still taste just like you want them to…namely, delicious!
Heritage Foods – any sausage or kielbasa they offer
