Confetti Corn Dog Hot Dog Topper


Despite its dubious nutritional reputation, the average frank actually beats a basic burger patty by about 100 calories (assuming you don't go the foot-long route; food shouldn't be measured in feet). Try organic, grass-fed, or uncured wieners, which tend to have less ­sodium. Then load up on fresh condiments like these. A whole-grain bun is another healthy upgrade, adding 3g of filling fiber.

What you will need

3 tablespoons charred corn

2 teaspoons sliced green onion

1 teaspoon fresh lime juice

2 teaspoons Mexican crema

1 tablespoon diced red bell pepper

1 teaspoon jalapeño slivers

1 tablespoon crumbled cotija cheese or queso fresco
