Have a Hot Dog Bar

Grill up your favorite hot dogs and put out some favorite (and unique) toppings for the perfect hot dog bar. Pull out the usual sauces along with a variety of peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, onions, sauerkraut, guacamole, and/or bacon. Make signs with suggested hot dog combinations.
