Puff Dogs

June 19, 2017 in Category: What's New

hot dog: [noun] 1. a small, cooked sausage that is mild in flavor and usually served in a long, split roll. 2. an utterance used to express approval. [verb] 3. to perform in a way that is meant to attract attention.

Everyone loves a hot dog. And with warm weather rolling in (think: BBQs, pool parties, etc.), we figured now is as good a time as any to officially declare Hot Dog Season. We carry some mighty fine dog options in our fresh and frozen sections as it is (Uncured Beef Hot Dogs, Uncured Chicken Hot Dogs, Turkey Corn Dogs, et al), but when we sampled Puff Dogs, we knew we had to make room in the lineup.

Hot dogs are, of course, typically served on a bun (see: definition 1); Trader Joe’s Puff Dogs takes this classic dog-meets-dough pairing to the next level: each uncured, all-beef dog is instead swaddled in a perfectly flaky-when-cooked puff pastry. We don’t mean to hot dog here (see: definition 3), but this marriage of beefy and buttery is pretty genius.

Bake Puff Dogs in the oven at 400°F for 25 minutes, cool, and enjoy! They’re perfectly satisfying all on their own, but we recommend dipping them in your favorite condiments. The classics are great (think TJ's Organic Ketchup & Organic Yellow Mustard); you also can’t go wrong with Aioli Garlic Mustard or Organic Sriracha Ranch Dressing. A more interesting hot dog merits more interesting condiments, don’t you think?

We’re selling each 15.7-ounce box of five Trader Joe's Puff Dogs for $6.49—a price that’ll make you want to shout, ‘Hot dog!’ (see: definition 2). You’ll find them in our freezers.
