I’m in the middle of my first ever camping trip, and hoo boy, I am learning. Like how your number one priority when it rains is to make sure all the flaps are rolled down in your tent and don’t get your pillows soaking wet. Or how your sandals are still not proper walking attire for long distances and they’ll likely give you massive blisters on your feet. Or how you should have packed Band-Aids for said blisters. But it’s not all negatives. I’m enjoying how cool and beautiful it is in the morning when the sun first rises. How much I absolutely love to read a real newspaper. And how obsessed I am with hot dog relish.
Haven’t heard of it? I don’t blame you, neither have I. I’m going to be honest with you, except for planning some of the main meals, I really didn’t do a ton of planning for this trip. My husband handled a majority of the planning and prepping, and when I planned hot dogs for lunch, he thought of hot dog relish.
Did I know what hot dog relish was a week ago? Absolutely not. Am I thankful that I now know of its existence? Absotively.
Let me tell you what it is. According to the packaging, it’s a mixture of mustard, relish, and spices. It’s spicy, it’s sweet, and it’s divine on any possible thing you can think of. Sandwiches? Hot dogs? Burgers? Salad? Okay, I haven’t tried on salad yet, but I’m kind of convinced it would work out well.
So I’m dropping in here to tell you to buy this. Sure, it’s the perfect use-all condiment for a camping trip. But it’s also just great to have in a fridge when you’re throwing together some lunch at home.
There are a lot of different kinds, but since I’ve technically only tried one kind, I say grab the B&G brand of hot dog relish. It’s good. Real good.
Hot dog relish isn’t the only thing I’m learning about. I’m taking a lot of notes on this camping trip and documenting practically every meal. You’re gonna be sick of hearing about camping by the time I’m through with it.
And before you ask, yes. That’s two hot dogs with one bun. It’s called conserving. But to be honest with you, I’m convinced it’s a better bun-to-hot-dog ratio.
