Best Hebrew National Slaw Dogs

A Delicious Slaw Dog is My Favorite!

Have you ever had a slaw dog? I know, it’s a southern thing, but then again, so was red velvet cake at one time, and look how it’s trended and traveled all over the world. If you’ve never had a Hebrew National slaw dog, you’ve missed half your life.  

Since there’s nothing better for slaw to sit atop than a grilled hot dog with grill marks in all the right places, I created a simple Top Dog Slaw Dog Station featuring homemade coleslaw, chili, and all the fixings.

Why Top Dog?  In order to have the perfect slaw dog, you have to begin with the perfect hot dog – Hebrew National – is there any other? Not in my house!

Top Dog Slaw Dog What makes a Hebrew National kosher hot dog a top dog? It’s all about what makes the cut (and what doesn’t).

They’re choosy about what goes into their franks and use only premium cuts of 100% kosher beef from the front half of the cow and they go one step further and choose the best from that. You won’t find any artificial flavors, colors, fillers, or by-products. When your hot dog is Kosher, that’s a hot dog you can trust!

Kroger has every single food item I need for my hot dog station.  I just love it when I don’t have to run around town searching for all the ingredients for dinner.

Hebrew National All Beef Franks


For my Top Dog Slaw Dog Station, I use a burlap tablecloth for a rustic look. Add some pretty faux flowers, pink lemonade, and a condiment holder. Bam! You’re done!

Grilled Hot Dogs

Once the Hebrew National hot dogs are grilled, place them in buns. Everyone is free to top their franks with chili, coleslaw, green onions, cheese, and condiments.

My favorite way to eat a hotdog is to pile coleslaw and mustard on top. Sometimes I add chili. This is my favorite coleslaw recipe.

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I use Duke's)

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients except the cabbage.
  2. Place shredded cabbage in a large bowl and add dressing. Stir gently to mix.
  3. Refrigerate leftovers.

For me, summer wouldn’t be complete without grilled Hebrew National Beef Franks or my homemade coleslaw.

Those sound so good. We usually only have hot dogs with onions, mustard and relish, but these would be nice for a change!

Christy Maurer June 29, 2015 - 7:47 am

Hebrew National is one of the only brands we will buy now! They’re so yummy. I have had slaw on mine before and love it though I usually use mustard and onions!

Chubskulit Rose June 29, 2015 - 7:50 am

My husband and son would like this kind of stuff. It’s nice that there is a National celebration for Hebrew slaw dogs.

Megan Elford June 29, 2015 - 8:23 am

Yep, there’s alot of drooling happening over here. That looks delicious! I love the idea of doing a buffet/station. That way everyone can add exactly what they want. I’ve never had coleslaw on a hot dog before, I’ll need to give it a try!

Shirley Wood June 29, 2015 - 10:10 am

I have a few packages of Hebrew National dogs in the freezer right now. We are some hot dog loving folks at our house and Hebrew National is one of our favorite brands.

Kristen from The Road to Domestication June 29, 2015 - 10:14 am

We LOVE Hebrew National at our house! I normally just like good ol’ mayo and ketchup on mine. My hubby, on the other hand, will pile his high with just about anything LOL

Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle June 29, 2015 - 10:34 am

These look delicious! We love coleslaw on our barbecue, but I’ve never tried it on a hot dog before.

Michellette "MimiCuteLips" Green June 29, 2015 - 1:30 pm

I only like hot dogs off the grill so this time of year is perfect for me. I like slaw but I’ve never had it on my hot dog. I will have to give it a try.

Sandy KS June 29, 2015 - 1:54 pm

Those look good. I am sure anyone who loves chili dogs will love this recipe. Your photos are making me hungry.

Mary June 29, 2015 - 6:06 pm

Nope never heard of of slaw on a dog but yum. You always have a great way of presenting …

Zan June 29, 2015 - 6:57 pm

I usually don’t like hit dogs unless they are 100% beef and grilled out. Hubby keeps talking about Chicago’s signature which I have never tried. I will keep Hebrew National in mind the next time he goes to the store.

Liz Mays June 29, 2015 - 7:55 pm

Mmm what a delicious summer classic. I know my boyfriend would love for me to make some of these the next time we grill.

Maria June 29, 2015 - 8:25 pm

I don’t know if they carry this brand in Canada, will have to look out for it.

Chantal June 29, 2015 - 9:29 pm

I have never had slaw dogs but these sure look good! I will have to make these for our next bbq! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Felice Raina June 29, 2015 - 11:37 pm

I love hot dogs but not the taste of the beef one though. This is making me so hungry right now. i honestly can’t wait for the 4th of july

Michelle V. June 30, 2015 - 12:39 am

Okay Alli, your photos make me really hungry. It would be better if you deliver some slaw dogs! 😉

Dogvills June 30, 2015 - 4:19 am

We love Chili Dogs and Cole Slaw. Your photos made me hungry!

Rosey June 30, 2015 - 4:35 am

Slaw dogs are such a good idea. I would like to make these for weekend get togethers.

Joanne T Ferguson June 30, 2015 - 5:09 am

I WISH I could try one of these now! I have very fond childhood memories of these hot dogs!
Your recipe and photos look YUMMY!

Jaime Nicole June 30, 2015 - 6:23 am

That’s the only kind of hot dogs that we use. I am not sure the kids would even abide another brand at this point!

Jeanine June 30, 2015 - 9:04 am

Yum this sounds so good and looks amazing! I’ve never heard of Slaw Dogs before. How interesting! I will have to see if they are around here too!

Cherri Megasko June 30, 2015 - 10:19 am

You know, I’ve spent a whole lot of time in the South and I’ve never heard of these. But I love slaw and Hebrew National Hot Dogs are “top dog,” so I’m going to have to give them a try. I love the idea of setting up a station for guests to dress their own dogs.

Erin June 30, 2015 - 10:24 am

Ooooooh goodness. I may have decided on todays lunch just by reading this post. Thanks 😉 {I wonder if one dog would be that big of a cheat on my near vegetarian diet? lol}

Lynndee June 30, 2015 - 11:52 am

Those look delish! I love coleslaw, but I’ve never tried it on my hotdog. I usually just put ketchup on mine.

lisa June 30, 2015 - 12:49 pm

I have never had a slaw dog. These look so good. I don’t usually eat hot dogs but every so often they sound so good.

Chrystal | YUM eating June 30, 2015 - 1:07 pm

I don’t really eat hot dogs. Cause..well you know..what’s in them! I just can’t get around that. There are a few brands like Kogel and Hebrew National that I will make an exception for because I know whats in them. I just dont need a lot of pieces, parts and additives in my life. lol

Uplifting Families June 30, 2015 - 2:04 pm

I haven’t tried a slaw dog. I try not to eat very many hotdogs now. I learned they are high in nitrates and arent good for you. I will eat one every now and then. Hotdogs are perfect for summer plus they are so easy to fix. I usually put onions, yellow mustard, and shredded cheese.

Ann Bacciaglia June 30, 2015 - 2:21 pm

These look so delicious. I will have to try making this for my next BBQ. I am sure it will be a big hit.

R U S S June 30, 2015 - 2:48 pm

I love hotdog stations – especially if you get to top it ( on your own ) with lots of onions, some chili, bacon bits, and lots of cheese. I gotta make sure I have a hotdog station the next time we have a get-together at home.

Nina Say June 30, 2015 - 2:59 pm

In my mind this entire blog post is what summer is supposed to be. I absolutely love it, it is a picture perfect representation.

Melissa Vera June 30, 2015 - 4:02 pm

I am loving this recipe. I have never had a Thanks for linking up this week on #HomeMattersParty hope you will come back next week and link up again. slaw dog but I want to try now.

April @ Everyday Fitness and Nutrition June 30, 2015 - 5:53 pm

I haven’t had a hot dog in a long time. We like Hebrew National dogs though since they are high quality all beef dogs.

desirae young June 30, 2015 - 6:56 pm

Ohh my gosh this is what we are having for dinner tonight. When I was prego I would crave fully loaded hot dogs. Still to this day its probably one of my favorite go-to dinners.

Kelly Hutchinson June 30, 2015 - 7:46 pm

I absolutely love a hot dog on the grill with lots of onions and chili! This slaw dog station is a super cute idea.

Bonnie @ wemake7 June 30, 2015 - 8:55 pm

We love Hebrew National Hot dogs. This recipe sounds so delicious! Would love to make these soon.

Dawn McAlexander June 30, 2015 - 9:31 pm

I have seen these in the store but have not bought any yet. I was wondering if someone had tried them. Now that I now more about them I will go pick some up. My family loves hot dogs!

Carrie @huppiemama June 30, 2015 - 9:58 pm

For some reason, as a kid, I always thought I hated cole slaw and sauerkraut… until I finally tried both as an adult and love them! This hot dog bar idea was great! #client

Krystal June 30, 2015 - 11:17 pm

I love your entire set up . It looks like a really fun day. I haven’t tried this brand – will look for it!

HilLesha July 1, 2015 - 1:05 am

I don’t eat meat, but I will have to admit that those look pretty tasty! I’ll have to share the link to your recipe with friends and family. 🙂

Melanie July 1, 2015 - 9:38 pm

Those look delicious! My kids are big hot dog fans and this is a great way to switch things up a bit! Yummy!

Emma July 2, 2015 - 3:06 am

My boys will definitely love this. Your pictures are making me hungry! 🙁 :(. Thank you for sharing your recipe…this will be in my list!

Aisha Kristine Chong July 8, 2015 - 12:15 am

Wonderful and I honestly liked how they are presented as well… sooo summery.

Neha Sultan July 23, 2015 - 11:52 am
