Where there’s a grill, there’s someone craving a veggie dog (it’s probably us). And while there’s lots to love about your favourite baseball-game dog with sweet relish, or getting a little fancy in your backyard with some gourmet ketchup and mustard, what’s really refreshing—and tasty—this summer is putting a restaurant-style spin on it. Dig into these inventive riffs on the summer staple.

The Bánh-Mì Dog

Consider this the East-meets-West dog. Fresh cucumber and pickled carrot line the sides of your scrumptious veggie dog and a drizzle of Sriracha mayo adds some heat. Serve on our fluffy and delicious gluten-free buns and sprinkle with mint leaves.

The Greek Dog

Need a fresh and cooling antidote to the summer heat? Bite into this Greek-style dog packed with cucumber, tomato, Kalamata olives, red onion, pepperoncini and smothered in a creamy vegan tzatziki sauce. No need to worry about sauce spillage on our gluten-free buns.

The Coconut Curry Dog

Add some aromatic sophistication to your veggie dog with this warm and spicy Indian curry recipe. A warm gluten-free bun is accompanied by yellow potato, cauliflower, and green peas in a yellow curry sauce and finished with purple cabbage, mango chutney, and cilantro.

The Buffalo Dog

When you like it hot, the buffalo dog is your ticket. This recipe loads up our delicious gluten-free buns with crunchy iceberg lettuce, shredded carrots, and chopped celery leaves, and then tops your veggie dog with tangy buffalo hot sauce, cooling ranch and a sprinkle of green onion.

The S’mores Dog

You don’t have to be camping to have s’mores. Stuff your leftover gluten-free hot dog buns with bananas instead of veggie dogs, add some Wowbutter or nut butter, a little cream cheese, fluffy marshmallows, a sprinkle of gluten-free graham cracker crumbs, and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
