Hot Dog Flavored Turkeys Are Here to Win(?) Thanksgiving

Ready for the ultimate Turkey Dog? It’s not a hot dog made with turkey, it’s a turkey with hot dog flavors! If you’re undoubtedly curious, we have the scoop on the recipes below.

Why settle for the same old boring turkey on Thanksgiving when your bird could turn into a dog? Reynolds Wrap has come up with three new styles of turkey that are inspired by hot dog styles and toppings. And yes, they involve ketchup, mustard, pickles and chili cheese:

  • The Chicago-Style Turkey Dog is rubbed with celery salt and ground mustard, then glazed in yellow mustard. The finished masterpiece is served over pickle spears, chopped onions, sport peppers and tomato slices.
  • The New York-Style Turkey Dog has a zesty onion powder rub and a bright-red ketchup glaze. It’s topped with sauerkraut, homemade onion sauce and spicy brown mustard.
  • The Chili Cheese Turkey Dog doesn’t have actual chili on it, but it’s coated in a chili powder rub. Once out of the oven, it’s topped with shredded cheese, onions and sliced jalapenos.

You can get the full instructions online as you prep for Turkey Day next week. Your kids will likely be excited at the prospect of a hot dog-flavored turkey, but it’s certainly unconventional.
