Hillbilly Hot Dogs


Hotdogs generally have not been included in my regular diet for a few years as I moved away from processed foods, but an errand one of the last days I was in West Virginia took me right past an icon of the region, Hillbilly Hot Dogs. photo 1

Presented on national television by Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Guy Fieri enjoyed the fried dogs with a multitude of toppings. http://www.foodnetwork.com/videos/homewrecker-hot-dog/35982.html

It only takes about 20 minutes from downtown Huntington and your enjoyment will extend from your taste buds to your funny bone.

Author: GoingPlaces Can-Do Zero Waste

I moved to McMinnville a few years ago and was impressed with its friendliness and the beauty of the surrounding countryside. I write several blogs. GoingPlacesLivingLife is my personal blog related to travel, food and just general thoughts. Can-Do Real Food tells about my business processing local produce from small farms and preserving it by canning and dehydrating. The concept of Zero Waste appeals to me because we can truly reduce what gets tossed into the landfill with very small changes in our lifestyle. Join us.
