Whole30 Day 4: Hot Dogs

This is a re-post from earlier in the year but it is worth a second look!  Just be sure to use whole30 approved hot dogs and toppings.

My dear friend, Kindra at Bon Appetit Paleo, is brilliantly creative.

We're no strangers to organic, grass-fed, beef hot dogs.  We've been buying the Applegate hot dogs for a couple of years and eating them bunless.  We love them!  But when Kindra told me her idea for a bun, I HAD to make it.

It was perfect!  PERFECT!  I barely had to convince myself I was not eating a hot dog bun.

  • organic, grass-fed, beef hot dogs
  • small organic sweet potato or yam (about the size of your hot dog)
  • condiments
  1. Preheat oven to 400˚F.
  2. Scrub potatoes and slather with ghee or bacon fat.
  3. Bake sweet potatoes for about 20 - 30 minutes, until soft and skins are starting to crisp.
  4. Grill hot dogs.
  5. Remove potatoes and allow to cool, to handle.
  6. Scoop out flesh.  This is your side dish.
  7. Add hot dog to potato skin and top with condiments.
Love, love, love this dish!


  1. I am so glad you posted this! It reminded me of all our hot dogs we ate this summer, that I never blogged about while I took a blog break!
