  • 1 Applegate organic hot dog
  • 1 small sweet potato
  • 2 tbsp mayo can sub guac or dressing of choice


  • MICROWAVE hot dog for 1 minute and sweet potato for 3 minutes
  • SLICE sweet potato down the middle, stuff the hot dog inside, and top with whatever you fancy! We love mayo from our partners at Primal Kitchen and mustard from our partners at Organicville. If you want to add a fermented flavor, try Wildbrine sauerkraut! Other topping options are different dipping sauces, avocado, sauteed veggies…the sky's the limit!
