Kentucky is famous for a number of things you’ve probably heard of.  Horses and horse racing, the Louisville Slugger, Kentucky Bluegrass.  But you may or may not be familiar with one of Louisville’s most famous offerings: the Hot Brown.

My Hot Brown Hot Dog Recipe is inspired by the Hot Brown sandwich made famous here in Louisville, KY.  It's topped with fresh diced tomatoes and a yummy Mornay sauce with two kinds of cheese!

It’s an open-faced turkey sandwich with sliced tomatoes, Mornay sauce and some other tastiness.  The flavors go together really nicely and I was trying to think of other ways to pair them together.  And I came up with this Hot Brown-inspired Hot Dog recipe for you all.

Hebrew National Beef Franks at Kroger - great base for my Hot Brown-inspired hot dog recipe

For my Hot Brown Hot Dog recipe I picked up some Hebrew National beef franks at my local Kroger.  Throughout the summer you can save up to $2 on Hebrew National so they were an easy choice for my hot dog recipe.  (Please note, though, that the combination of franks and these toppings may not be Kosher).

Grilled franks and hot dog buns - can't have summer without them! Try my Hot Brown-Inspired Hot Dog recipe to dress up your dog

For cookouts and BBQs this summer, I’ll probably set up a little hot dog station for my guests.  I’ll set out the franks and buns, plus a dish of the diced tomatoes and a squeeze bottle of the Mornay sauce.  Then they can add as much or as little of each ingredients as they’d like.  I may even set out some nutmeg they can grate a bit of on top of their hot dogs if they’d like to draw that flavor out a little more.
