Ever go to a BBQ and get asked the inevitable question “burger or hot dog?” and not know which to choose?

Never fear! The answer is here. Burgerdog!

Or hot-burg? Ham-dog-er?

Well, whatever we wanna call it, one thing’s for sure—it’s delicious.

I first saw this idea on an episode of last season’s Next Iron Chef. Chef Robert Irvine ground up some hot dog into burger meat, and the consensus seemed to be that it was really tasty. Robert was sent home in that episode for some other faults. But his “hot-burg” (what he was calling it) would live on in my memory all winter, until the warm weather started finally creeping in and I had an excuse to make the thing!

Next time you are indecisive at a grill session, grab a Hot-Burg and you won’t have to choose.

Onions and pickles

Onion and pickles are my favorite hot dog toppings. Feel free to use relish instead of pickles, but I’m not a fan.

Dicing up the dogs

Dice up the dogs real small.

Beef to hot dog ratio

A pound of beef to a 1/2 pound of dogs.

Cooking up the Hot-Burgs

Then just cook them up! The hot dogs actually sort of insulate the beef, so these took slightly longer than I am used to.

Close up of cooking Hot-Burgs

The best part about these: the hot dog pieces on the outer edge get nicely browned up while the burger cooks.

Top with cheese

Obviously, top with some cheese.

Hot burg, ready to eat

This burger is super tasty, easy to make, and really tastes like a hot dog!
