Hosting an Easy Summer Kick Off Party

This post is sponsored by Hebrew National.

I am so glad summer is here! Earlier this week I hosted a super easy and fun summer kick off party and I wanted to share a few simple tips for making your next party a success. I love to host parties but I hate to still be in the kitchen cooking when my friends arrive. I’m always looking for ways to get the food and fun prepped before the party starts.

The key to an easy summer kick off party is a simple, tasty and fun menu. I decided on Chicago Dogs, potato chips and blueberry mint lemonade. I love this menu because it’s just a little different than the average hot dog and burger summer menu plus it adds a lot of fun flavors. I used Hebrew National All-Beef Franks because they are super tasty and really pack a punch with flavor. See below for our Chicago Dog recipe + our simple blueberry mint lemonade.

Chicago Dogs

Hebrew National All-Beef Franks
Hot Dog Buns
White Onion
Pickle Spears
Sliced Banana Peppers
Celery Salt

Chicago Dogs are super simple to make, they just require a handful of toppings that you probably even have in your fridge. First grill your hot dogs and your buns then drizzle with mustard. Next add sliced tomato to one side and a pickle spear to the other side. Top with a few banana peppers, relish and chopped onion. Sprinkle the top with celery salt and you have yourself a delicious Chicago dog – perfect for any summer party!

The combination of franks and these toppings may not be Kosher.

 What makes a Hebrew National Kosher hot dog premium? It’s all about what makes the cut (And what doesn’t). We’re choosy about what goes into our franks, we use only premium cuts of 100% kosher beef from the front half of the cow and then choose the best from that. No artificial flovors, colors, fillers or by-products. When your hot dog is Kosher, that’s a hot dog you can trust! For more summer fun with Hebrew National, visit
