Playful patterned platter of hot dogs – Memorial Day BBQ

by Alexis Murphy on May 27, 2018

Memorial Day snuck up on me this year and instead of stressing over what to serve, I’m opting to keep it simple and traditional, with a touch of whimsy. With a wave of the magic mustard wand,
our weekend hot dogs are going from drab to designer.

It’s amazing how just a pop of yellow can make me smile. I just put my mustard du jour in a zip lock bag and snip one of the corner for perfect condiment placement. Stars, zig-zags, curves, polka dots, or just a simple straight line, and the hot dogs are ready to party.

Pattern is powerful, pattern is playful and for an easy-peasy Memorial DayBBQ, pattern is perfect!
