Here’s an impressive way to serve a hot dog bar for your next gathering with all the fixings!
Need an easy lunch or dinner idea that’s also affordable and delicious?
How about creating an epic hot dog bar charcuterie-style on a board with all the yummy toppings and condiments?!
All you have to do is grab some small bowls or ramekins and go to town filling them with fun hot dog add-ons like salsa, pepperoncini peppers, pickles, mustard, etc. Taking the time to remove the packaging and pouring items into bowls makes it such a beautiful presentation!
The result is a fancy-looking tray with lots of options for everyone to customize their hot dog as desired! The best part is it’s so easy to compile and you can use up fridge odds and ends for toppings.
Here’s what I added to my hot dog bar to include some unique topping ideas:
Tips for building the best hot dog bar party board:
- If hot dogs aren’t your favorite, consider grilling brats instead. I personally love par-boiling brats in beer first with onions and spices to soften them first, then grilling. YUMMO!
- In order to keep the hot dogs warm and buns fresh, I recommend placing all your toppings and condiments first on the board. That part takes the longest, and then after that grill your hot dogs and serve right away!
- Another helpful option is to buy these warming hot dog pouches from Amazon.com. If you’re doing a large event these may be handy to keep dogs warm longer.

I LOVE a good grilled hot dog once in a while! 🌭
Creating a large board of toppings to go along with hot dogs is such a genius meal idea. It’s fun to brainstorm your own combo of add-ons and enjoy. The possibilities are endless. I honestly wanted to include more, but kind of ran out of room. 😂 My kids suggested adding relish, or maybe even chili and freshly shredded cheese.
My family was super psyched to see this as a meal and I know yours will too. I plan to do this again in the fall for football season, as this would be great game-day food!
