Hot Dogs on the menu? Try pairing with Riesling, Gewurztraminer, and rosé Wine. A Gewürztraminer will be great with your basic New York style hot dog with mustard and sauerkraut. For a Chicago-style dog with sour pickles and hot peppers, you might opt for a crisp Riesling. No matter your toppings, a dry rosé almost always works. One wine you could try is Max Ferdinand Richter Graacher Dompropst Riesling Kabinett. It has 4 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 32 dollars.

Instructions

Lay out a tortilla and spread refried beans all over one side in a thin layer. Use a pizza cutter to cut tortilla in thin strips to make the bandages. Pick up a strip and press on the hot dog, bean side down and wind it around like a mummy, pressing the beany side onto the hot dog. Repeat with other hot dogs. Dont worry if they are slightly messy. When they brown, you wont really notice it. Heat butter in a non-stick skillet and brown hot dogs on all sides until crisp, turning gently. (If a piece of bandage comes loose, use a little bit of beans to stick it back down, like glue) Carefully insert a wooden skewer into one end. Serve mummy dogs with salsa or warm nacho cheese dip.

Tips

Health Tips

  • If you can, choose grassfed butter for a better nutritional profile—more vitamins, a favorable omega 3/6 ratio, etc.

  • To make baked goods lighter and sneak in some extra nutrition, you can swap half the butter or oil (sometimes even all of it!) with an equal amount of unsweetened applesauce.

  • Believe it or not, some sources say you can substitute avocado puree for butter when making brownies. Try it and let us know how it turns out!

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • Butter's incredible flavor has made it an extremely popular cooking fat, but it is important to know that butter has the lowest smoke point of almost any cooking fat. This means butter literally starts to smoke at a lower temperature than most other fats between 250-350 degrees Fahrenheit. So while butter is great for cooking at lower temperatures, you should probably use canola oil, coconut oil, or another oil with a higher smoke point for frying and other high temperature cooking.
