A hot dog is a cooked sausage served in a sliced bun, typically with garnishes and condiments. Sausages (also known as frankfurters) were brought to the United States by German immigrants in the 19th century. Over the years, hot dogs have become one of the most popular street foods in the USA.
The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council was established in 1994 by the American Meat Institute, the largest and oldest trade association that represents the U.S. meat and poultry industry. The Council is dedicated to providing consumers and media with information concerning nutrition, preparation, safety and quality of sausages and hot dogs as iconic American foods.
The Council designated July 23 as National Hot Dog Day and July as National Hot Dog Month. It organizes and sponsors numerous events held across the United States. The proceedings from the events are often given to charity.
To celebrate National Hold Dog Day, invite your friends over for a cookout and enjoy delicious hot dogs with your favorite condiments and garnishes.Remind me with Google Calendar
