On Independence Day, Americans will enjoy 150 million hot dogs, enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times.* That's a lot of dogs! In addition to the amount of hot dogs consumed, there are so many varieties of hot dogs, from classic to beef, chicken, turkey, Polish dogs and even vegan hot dogs. There are also many ways to cook hot dogs. You can roast, grill, broil, steam and even fry hot dogs. 

But, no matter which hot dog variety you prefer or which cooking method works for you, if you're one of the millions serving up hot dogs this summer, you'll definitely enjoy the variety of tasty ways you can top and serve them this summer.
