I cannot tell a lie: I am in lifelong love with the hot dog.
“Sarah,” you might say, “it’s trash meat in a tube.”
Correct. And I love it.
You know who loves hot dogs more than I do? Every single person in the nation of South Korea. The Korean corn dog, if you’re not familiar, is a thing of sublime beauty: crunch, sour, sweet, smokey, rich.
I’ll never be able to get close to that in my own kitchen, but I do love to add kimchi to my American style dog, plus a little sweet and creamy aioli with Scorpion Honey.
Crab rangoon is nostalgic, everyone loves them, and it’s easy to make it dairy-free by swapping out the cream cheese for a plant alternative. Trust me: bringing out a tray of fresh-fried crispy stars filled with an amped-up version of the classic will be a huge hit.
