Honey, Basil and Panko Turkey Dog

Can you believe it's Hot Dog Friday already?  Last night something weird happened...

... I didn't really want to eat hot dogs.  [gasp]

Not because I didn't think it would be delicious --  because it would be --  but because of my carb cutting diet, I couldn't have the bun.


And because of that, I lost all my hot dog inspiration.  So I have to give credit where credit is due. My creative beau thought up this tasty turkey dog topping.

You can't really see it but it's covered in honey. That's what's keeping the crispy panko, that he crisped up in coconut oil (!!!) and garlic, on the turkey dog.

Shopping List
Turkey dogs
Hot dog buns
Panko bread crumbs
1 clove garlic
Honey
Fresh Basil
Coconut oil

Grill your turkey dog, (gotta get the grill marks).

Crisp up your Panko in a frying pan with coconut oil (instead of butter), mince up your garlic clove and throw in as well. Should take 5 minute total to not burn the Panko or garlic.

Spread an extremely generous amount of honey on the bottom of the bun, then put the turkey dog on top and then spread even more honey on top of that.

Sprinkle on your panko, and then more honey. Top with fresh basil and serve.
