My husband plays tennis three nights a week. Dinner is at five and needs to be light. That is fine with me! He’s in the mood for hot dogs. We like them Long Island style with Cole Slaw and prefer them wrapped in a slice of rye bread. Our meal will be complete with sliced peaches in season. I checked Good Housekeepings latest rating for hot dogs, and here are their results:
First Place: Ball Park Lite Beef Franks topped the other dogs in both taste and texture. “This has the succulent, peppery taste of a classic hot dog!” noted one taster. “Firm, juicy, delicious,” said another. With 50 percent less total fat and one-third fewer calories than most dogs, they’re a home run for Ball Park.
Honorable Mention: With a mere 45 calories per serving, Hebrew National 97 Percent Fat Free Franks are ideal stand-ins for the real thing. While some volunteers didn’t like their slightly coarse texture, these dogs’ beefy flavor scored major points. “They’d be excellent with sauerkraut!” noted one tester.
