Egg Salad Hot Dog


I’m pretty sure Honey Boo Boo would love this meal.

I saw her fill a bath tub with mayonnaise once and the play in it.  That tells me she’d be all over this.  It’s really all sorts of classy.

Eggland’s Best sent me some eggs for a party I’m planning soon, so clearly I’ve been thinking about eggs a lot.  I had the idea on a random day that egg salad would be great on a hot dog, because I’m pretty much sure hot dogs go great with most things.

I’m not sure I’ve ever told you this, but I love hot dogs.  No really.  Like a lot.  It’s borderline weird how much I like hot dogs.  So when I thought hmm I bet egg salad would be good on a hot dog (because that’s what I think about in the middle of the day, totally normal), I decided to put it to the test and Jesse was my guinea pig.

Jesse came home to find my creation even though we had plans to do some grilling.  I think we were both pleasantly surprised…

I know it sounds like a weird combination, but I promise, it’s really tasty.  Also, since this is clearly the classiest of meals (insert heavy sarcasm), I won’t judge you if you want to eat this in private. But let’s be honest, you should probably own the classiness and tell the world about this awesome combination. eggsaladhotdog

 

Egg Salad Hot Dogs

4 eggs, hard boiled
1 tbsp mayonnaise
1 heaping teaspoon Barn Burner Mustard
dash of garlic salt
1 green onion, chopped
4 hot dogs
4 buns

Dice hard boiled egg.  Mix egg with mayo, mustard, garlic salt and white part and half the green part of one green onion.

Heat hot dogs as you’d like. Boil. Grill. Microwave.  Whatever you prefer.

Lay hot dog on bun. Top with egg salad.  Garnish with remaining green onion.  Serve with ketchup if you’d like.  Makes 4 hot dogs.

I tried to keep it light on the mayo.  What really added the flavor here was the mustard.  I’ve told you about Green Mountain Mustard before: HERE and HERE.   Seriously, their Barn Burner is what makes this awesome.  If you can’t get your hands on this mustard, maybe try putting some hot sauce in the egg salad.

To top off the classiness, I have to tell you I put ketchup on mine.  No regrets.

Ok so egg salad on a hot dog.  I’m going to need you to trust me (and Honey Boo Boo).  It’s pretty great.

awesome

 

What do you think?  Egg salad on a hot dog? Any other strangely awesome combos?
