4th of July Hot Dog Board

Now, back to that hot dog board!

This fun platter is such a fun and easy way to present hot dogs to a crowd. Our version does assume that those eating the hot dogs enjoy ketchup, but you can always skip the ketchup or have plain dogs on the side.

You won’t need a lot of supplies or ingredients to pull this one off and it will look awesome on your food table!

We used a bowl of blue tortilla chips (with some star-shaped cheese) on top to represent the blue corner of the American Flag. The stripes are designed courtesy of the ketchup and hot dogs and buns!
