So yesterday was the first offical day of fall. However, I am getting every last change I have to grill before I can’t. So, I grilled up some all beef franks today and make these Cuban style hot dogs.
So a traditional Cuban sandwich is comprised of Cuban bread, ham, roasted pork, Swiss cheese, pickles, mustard. With the Cuban style hot dog, the pork gets replaced with the hot dog. Also, no Cuban bread included either. A traditional hot dog bun is what we use here. Plus, you broil the bun along with the ham and Swiss cheese.
Now, I am not a fan of traditional yellow mustard. It’s got too strong of a flavor for me. So, I used honey mustard instead when making these tasty hot dogs. Plus, don’t forget a dill pickle spear on there along with some thinly sliced red onion. This is definitely a tasty change to your standard hot dog.
