Spanish Olive Hot Dog

Okay, Okay.  I have to admit it — after two months of posting hot dogs every Friday — I am finally all hot dogged out.

I was really tempted to throw in the towel this week … but I promised a new hot dog every Friday all summer  and I am a woman of my word.  No matter how bizarre or challenging this gets.

I took 212 photos of this hot dog. Hot dogs have proven to be very difficult subjects to photograph. This one was no exception.

I didn’t even want to share these photos. [So hard on myself] But my taste tester said “No baby, this tastes really good, really good, you have to post it.”

Do you like green olives and cream cheese together? If you haven’t tried it I suggest you do. I usually make little pastry puffs filled with the salty and creamy duet. Or canapes, and spreads.  Weird yes, but delish.

Honey doesn’t think it’s weird.  She loves all of my cooking.  Good girl.

    Honey’s got good taste. This might be my new favorite. I’ve never had the green olive/cream cheese mash up but now that you mention it, it sounds INCREDIBLE. Bookmarked and Buzzed :)

    Cream cheese and olive is fantastic! In Italy, Philadelphia comes olive flavored too and is by far my favorite flavor!!

    This does sound like an interesting combination, but certainly all things I love. I’m going to have to try it!

    Im new to your blog and havent yet seen all the hotdogs you’ve been creating, but have you tried making different flavored mayonnaises? my favorite so far is a hotdog with garlic mayo and chives. obv cant breathe on anyone for teh rest fo the day but it is so good! pesto mayo, red pepper mayo, etc etc….all potential yums for your hotdog :) keep up the challenge!

    I don’t love green olives my self, but I think this would be good with some jalapeno slices – like a hot dog jalapeno popper! Thanks for always providing out-of-the-box ideas!
