Bock n’ Slaw Dog
Yodelehh Heee Whooooo!!!
Yodel me this, Heinz – why does a meaty, old world tradition have to have such an unfortunate surname like “wurst”? There is nothing “wurst” about it! It’s amazing!! Bratwurst. Bockwurst. Drool-wurst! And topped with some quick and simple slaw with authentic spicy German mustard and you’ll totally be yodeling the heck outta this thing.
The friends and I made a little outing to the piney mountains of Washington to our little German tourist town, Leavenworth a couple of months ago, where we devoured everything in sight and drinking all the German beers we could. It’s how we roll. Our favorite spot in Leavenworth is the MunchenHaus right down town, in an open air beer garden with constantly streaming polka, which reminds me of summers with my Czech grandparents. As any self respecting Czech girl would do, I grabbed a pint, a brat and opened wide!
The other part of the Leavenworth experience is stocking up on your favorite wursts and taken them home for later consumption – like we did this weekend. During the Bake Sale for Beka, Jackie (who will be running the half marathon with Beka) joined me to tally bids, drink bubbles, and devour a package of bockwursts we had from our weekend adventure. Ben fired up the grill, I made a quick and healthified cole slaw and we opened wide after a hefty dose of German spicy mustard was smeared on top.
Thus, the Bock n’ Slaw Dog was born.
Go fill up your pints now and go fire up the grill. This is one awesome polka-dog. Get it? Polka dot? Polka dog? Yeah, you get it.
And if you’re joining us for the rest of the Hot Dog Days of Summer – aka #HotDogWeek – we kicked it off with our new classic the Andouille Cajun Dog. If you like Spicy, we got you covered!
