Fourth of July Hot Dog Bar
Summer is the perfect time of year to reward your employees with a special BBQ. This is especially true for an industry like ours where our crew is outside in the heat for most of the day. A Fourth of July BBQ is a fun way to tell your employees how much you appreciate all of their hard work. You can quickly throw together this simple (and delicious) Patriotic Hot Dog Bar for your team any day of the week. From spicy Mexican flavors to traditional chili dogs, a hot dog bar is a great way to please a wide variety of appetites. Simply set out the condiments and let your guests be as creative (or plain) as they want. You may want to print a “suggested recipes” guide to help them mix and match the ingredients. Before you start up the grill, check out this practical advice from Fox News about how to build the perfect hot dog. The Hot Dog Bar we’ve created was inspired by the recipes linked below.
