The Mr. Dave Dog (My Semi Original Creation)
Lest you think I am being completely original here, let me start off by giving credit where credit is due. For this particular creation, I was inspired by the Ditch Dog of the Ditch Plains restaurant in NY. They do a hot dog covered in macaroni and cheese which seems to me to be a wonderful idea. So when I had tons of leftovers from my latest project (Capital Region Style Hot Dog Chili Mac Cheese), I thought I might try my hand at some hot dog wizardry.
I ventured out into the miserable weather (fist shake at the Upstate NY weather gods) and wrangled up a couple Stewart's Deli Dogs
I got one dog with sauce, one sans. Although there is hot dog chili inside the mac cheese, I thought a little extra might not be out of place.
I spooned on a hearty amount of the Hot Dog Chili Macaroni and Cheese onto both of the dogs and then finished with a dash of bread crumbs.
Macaroni and Cheese and hot dogs are a marriage made in heaven, this has been known for centuries. We have only further proof here with this creation which I have decided to adopt as my own personnel hot dog style, The Mr. Dave Dog (I also have a sandwich, The Hungry David).
The Deli Dog with the extra chili on it was better. It served as glue to hold the mac cheese on and also added next level hot dog chili flavor. Just looky here, as if you need further convincing that this gut wrenching little bastard was delicious.
That is all for now. By the way, I haven't forgotten about the Four Lickles. I am simply waiting for a suitable gathering of associates for a taste test so that I can get a varied cross section of opinions.
