Grilled New York Style Pickle Dogs | Easy Keto Meal Idea
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 hot dogs, try using 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 condiments — to make this hot dog bring back your favorite backyard barbecue flavors.
- Any condiments work in this recipe. But if you’re adding ketchup, remember to use the no-sugar added variety to save on carbs. Check out our Guide to the Best Keto Friendly Condiments.
- Find the biggest pickles you can. We used Mt. Olive Kosher Dills, which are the perfect dog-length options for these bites.
- 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.
