Chow down on an all-American favorite today to celebrate National Hot Dog Day. The “hot dog,” as we know it, originated in Germany but got its name from a New York Post cartoonist who couldn’t spell “Daschund sandwiches,” as street sellers called them. Hot dogs can be enjoyed all year round, but are especially popular at summertime barbecues. Cook up some hot dogs for dinner tonight with all of your favorite fixings to celebrate one of America’s most iconic foods!
