Are you celebrating National Hot Dog Day? We were never big fans of hot dogs, they just had an over processed flavor. That all changed when we found brisket dogs at our local grocery store. The new dogs changed everything. To celebrate the ever present dog on it's day, we loaded it up with garden favorites that are so abundant this time of year. We were shocked at how amazing these turned out.
