🌭 Dip it Dogs 🌭

A lunch that’s easy for you and fun for your kid? Win-win! Instead of packing up a hot dog with all the toppings piled on, try leaving them on the side for your child to easily dip into during their lunch.

  1. Prep and pack desired hot dog toppings along with bun

Hot Dog on Wheels 

Do you have a car lover in your family? They’ll really appreciate this lunchtime treat! It’s a meal that’s almost too cute to eat. Here’s what you need:


  • Vienna Beef Pups, or a Vienna Beef Hot Dog sliced in half
  • Hot Dog Bun, sliced in half
  • Mini Persian Cucumber
  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Toothpicks
  • Vienna Beef Yellow Mustard


Simply assemble your Hot Dog like normal and build wheels out of the Cherry Tomatoes and Mini Persian Cucumbers and attach to the Hot Dog with toothpicks. Just remind your child to remove the toothpicks before consuming!
