Spicy Game Time Seattle Hot Dogs

January 12, 2016

Fox’s first birthday lands on the big game day, so we are planning a family party (relatives will be flying in from Northern California, New York, and North Carolina!) to celebrate our little guy during festivities. Lots of family and football equates to one thing: mounds of food!

Two of my absolute favorite foods are hot dogs and cream cheese, so when I caught wind that the unofficial hot dog of Seattle includes a hefty dose of cream cheese my body let out an unprompted squeal. The whole situation is still a little hazy – slight memory loss, dizziness, and utter euphoria – well, maybe I’m exaggerating a little but I still had to try ASAP 😉

To make this game time meal a trifecta, I kicked up the heat with Mezzetta Deli Sliced Hot Jalapeño Peppers (they also come in tamed if you aren’t a spice-enthusiast like me) and sriracha.

I did a trial run last night for dinner and cannot wait to share this with guests when they get into town!
