Ditch the hot dog bun in favor of a salty, crunchy pickle and enjoy the summer grilling season keto-style!

Hold the relish – but add the mustard!

Thank goodness hot dogs are a keto-friendly food, even if the carby bun is not. If you’re used to adding relish to your links, try making a hot dog with a pickle as the “bun” for this delicious New York-style dog instead!

With peppers and onions fried to perfection, you’ll just add chives and bacon, as well as your favorite keto condiments, to make this hot dog bring back your favorite backyard barbecue flavors.

Hip tips for making hot dogs with pickle buns:

    • Find the biggest pickles you can. We used Mt. Olive Kosher Dills, which are the perfect dog-length options for this recipe.
    • It’s okay to skip the grill! If you aren’t up to grilling outside, you can cook the hot dogs using your favorite indoor method instead.

If you only have smaller pickles around and you want to make this recipe, you can cut the pickles after grilling and make mini pickle dog poppers. Yum!

Love grilling up these pickle hot dogs? Enjoy them year-round!

Although these are great for grilling season, they’re also perfect all year round for a low-carb dish. Serve them with Keto No-Potato Salad for a filling backyard feast! Even none keto guests won’t be able to resist the fun bun replacement. 🌭

Not only do I really enjoy how these hot dogs taste, but they’re functional too! The hot dog itself really didn’t slide around since it fit perfectly in the pickle “bun”. This is such a clever idea that’s a grilling must-try meal.
