The folks at Serious Eats played with their food again and made these Oscar-themed hot dogs inspired by each of the films nominated for Best Picture. Forget the Academy Awards—who will win best “Oscar Dog”?
The Descendants: "The Hawaii Dog"
Hot Dog, Grilled Pineapple and Sriracha on a Bun
For a movie set in Hawaii, tropical fruits and spice seemed like the perfect accompaniment for this dog. We think even George Clooney might approve.
The Help: "The Southern Comfort Dog"
Fried Chicken Sausage, Collard Greens, Gravy on a Buttered Bun
Minny's fried chicken inspired this southern dog. It's not holding back on the calories either with all that homemade gravy atop a buttered and grilled bun.
Midnight in Paris: "The Parisian Dog"
Pâté, Pork Sausage, Frisée, Creamy Dijon Vinaigrette on Baguette
Pâté on a hot dog? Well, not exactly. We used pork sausage in this classy, Paris-inspired dog fit for a French king and queen...or at least for Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams.
