Southern Slaw Dogs

Looking for a new way to change up the summer classic hot dog? Give these southern slaw dogs a try. These hot dogs are topped with yellow mustard, bbq sauce, and a simple homemade coleslaw.

I also like to toast the hot dog buns for these southern slaw dogs. This way the bun can hold up with that creamy coleslaw included on top. No soggy bun if you toast them first. I also am not a big fan of yellow mustard. So instead of drizzling that on the hot dog, I included Dijon mustard in the coleslaw. You get that mustard flavor without a heavy drizzle of mustard.

This coleslaw is so simple to put together, just mix a bag of coleslaw mix with some mayonnaise, sugar, Dijon mustard, and honey. Then it needs at least 1 hour in the refrigerator before you use it.

You can also cook your hot dog however you like. I personally prefer them cooked on the grilled. I love those dark marks the grill gives them. However, my second preferred method is in the air fryer. It’s the closest way to get that grilled flavor. My husband like to boil his hot dogs.
