If you're wondering what a hot dog recipe is doing here on The Endless Meal, let me assure you: these are no ordinary hot dogs, these are Hawaiian Hot Dogs. “What are Hawaiian hot dogs”, you say? I'm glad you asked.

Hawaiian hot dogs are topped with sweet and smoky grilled pineapple and smothered in (or drizzled on if smothering isn't your thing) teriyaki mayo. Make sure to sprinkle the optional cayenne pepper on the pineapple, so there's this sweet/smoky/spicy thing going on that I just absolutely love.

Bonus: they can easily be made vegan-friendly with some vegan mayo and a meatless hot dog. Or make them for your gluten avoiding pals by putting them on a gluten-free bun. Or ditch the bread for your paleo friends. Ok, I think you guys get it … these hot dogs don't discriminate.

Hawaiian hot dogs might look (and taste) like some sort of fancy pants hot dogs but trust me, they're only about 30 seconds more work than a regular Weiner on a bun.  They're perfect for a hot, summer BBQ party.

And if you're wondering about those colorful, party-perfect napkins up there, they are from a company called Renova. Aren't they fun?

Now please, drop whatever you are doing and go and make these Hawaiian hot dogs! Oh, and give me a shout so I can come over and help you eat them. 🙂

Description

Hawaiian hot dogs are simple to make and so tasty. The sweet grilled pineapple and teriyaki mayo add just the right amount of sweetness. You will LOVE them!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pineapple, cut in half then sliced into 1/4 inch thick rounds
  • 1 teaspoon grape seed oil
  • Optional: 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 8 hot dogs – I used Grimm's smokies (use vegan hot dogs for a vegan hot dog feast!)
  • 8 hot dog buns (gluten-free, if needed)

For the teriyaki mayo:

  • 1/4 cup real mayonnaise (NOT Miracle Whip!), sub vegan mayo if needed
  • 3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon lime juice
  • Pinch of sea salt

Toppings:

  • Thinly sliced red onions, jalapeño peppers, cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat your grill to high and oil the grate.
  2. Combine all the teriyaki mayo ingredients together in a small bowl and mix well.
  3. Toss the pineapple slices with the grapeseed oil then grill until grill marks appear, about 2 minutes. Flip the pineapple slices over, sprinkle with cayenne pepper (if you like it spicy), then remove the pineapple from the grill.
  4. Turn the grill down to medium-high and grill the smokies until they are cooked through, 7-10 minutes, turning a few times. Lightly toast the buns on the grill for about 1 minute.
  5. Serve the hot dogs with slices of grilled pineapple, teriyaki mayo and some or all of the toppings.
