Bow to the Devil Dog!

I'm about to show ya'll somethin' crazy awesome. And I have Jewbacca of Pain in the Ass Vegan to thank for it all. Behold, my new favorite food — the Diablo Dog:

This monstrosity of a veggie dog dish contains a not one, but two Yves veggie dogs, Amy's vegan chili from a can, nacho Teese sauce, my Granny's homemade dill relish, onions, jalepenos, Frank's red hot, horseradish sauce (made from mixing horseradish with a little vegan mayo), and fake bacon bits. And it's all nestled inside a homemade whole wheat hoagie bun, which I made using HappyVeganFace's Whole Wheat Bun recipe.

Jewbacca's sinfully delicious delicious dog was inspired by an episode of Strangers with Candy, and as a huge Amy Sedaris fan, I think that makes it taste even better. You must make this dog. You won't regret it. For instructions (and a little diablo dog preachin'), check out Jewbacca's step-by-step picture post.

On the side, I knew I'd need something a little more healthy to make up for all the processed, cheezy sin I'd be stuffing into my mouth. So I boiled a little local corn on the cob and covered it in the Garlic-Miso Dressing from Vegan Soul Kitchen:

Another winner from Bryant Terry! This dressing is so much better than butter. In fact, I doubt I'll ever slather Earth Balance on corn again. This recipe is healthier and tastier.

Now, go make yourself a Diablo Dog. You can atone for your transgressions later.

Yum, almost a Chicago dog, except they use pepperoncini instead of jalapenos and sprinkle it all with celery salt!

You just made my jaw hit the floor. That dog is INSANE! Wow. You've got all my favorite food groups piled in the bun, hyuk hyuk! Seriously, what a thing of beauty.

I'm intrigued by this garlic miso sauce, it sounds delicious!

Vegan Deluxe said...

Holy mother of hot dogs. That looks deadly!!!

My favorite thing to do with corn is to grill it and put cilantro vinaigrette on it:

1 bunch chopped cilantro
1 Tbs sugar
2-3 garlic cloves
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 tsp salt

Process everything except olive oil until chopped fine; then add olive oil in stream.

Mmmmmm......

That is one intense dog! I think my boyfriend would be in heaven if I made him one of those.
