Barbecues can get messy very quickly, so it’s a good idea to keep everything neatly laid out and within reach. These hot dog bag labels are a fantastic way to add some patriotic flair while clearly marking your food for guests. For example, you can use these stickers to mark hot dogs that have vegan sausages, dogs with gluten-free buns or ones that are extra spicy.

Arranging your hot dog toppings

With the advent of food trucks, hot dog toppings have become more and more adventurous. While classic toppings like onions and chili are easy to recognize, your guests might need a little help identifying mango habanero salsa or jalapeño cream cheese. Keep your toppings organized, and maintain an all-American theme, with these cute topping labels.

Finding the best hot dog condiment
