Getting Real with Faux Fois Gras

Beyond Organic GreenFInished Hot DogsLet me get real for a second: cook-out foods just aren’t my favorite. Sure, every once in a while, I do enjoy a grilled burger or dog (and Paul Smith is one mean grill master), but most of the time, these traditional American favorites just don’t light my charcoal, so to speak. So there, I said it.

Beyond Organic Hot DogsOn the other hand, I’m a big fan of the nutrition and great taste packed into each Beyond Organic GreenFinished Hot Dog (which we’ve taken to calling “prime links”) so I’ve been tinkering in the kitchen to find new ways of enjoying these puppies.
