Today is National Hot Dog Day! My family and I have been celebrating National Hot Dog Month by switching from our regular brand of hotdogs and eating all natural Turkey Franks by Jennie-O.
Whether you prefer hot dog, frankfurter or weenies you’ll love the taste of Jennie-O all natural Turkey Franks. My teenage sons who can be very critical of new foods said they are really enjoying the Jennie-O turkey franks and can’t tell the difference.
Jennie-O Turkey Frank a 100% turkey frank with natural smoke flavoring and 40% less fat than USDA data for beef franks. These franks are great on the grill, tucked inside your favorite bun and in your favorite recipe. As a mom of teen sons I’m always searching for new and tasty ways to improve my families eating habits and make us healthier. Not an easy balance with teen boys, if they love it they’ll eat it all, if they don’t it will sit in the fridge until it’s thrown out or eaten by myself or my husband. Luckily Jennie- O Turkey Franks in my home are teen tested and APPROVED!
