HOUSTON – If you’ve ever found yourself torn between choosing burgers or hot dogs, we’ve got a perfect solution. Cheeseburger dogs are the ultimate hybrid dish for your next backyard cookout. It’s a tasty twist on two classic summer faves that’s super easy to make. Restaurant owner and chef Tim Love shares his recipe, just in time for the 4th of July.
“I was on a vacation eight or ten years ago, and we had a grill in our hotel room and were going to make some burgers,” said Love. “All they had was hot dog buns, and I just said, ‘To heck with it. I’ll just take the burger and turn it into the shape of a hot dog.' Turns out, it’s really delicious.”
According to Love, the real flavor of this dish lies in the incredible char the unique shape is able to acquire.
“You get this really juicy hamburger, but you get the char as if you have these really thin patties,” said Love.
