Let’s face it, with Father’s Day right around of the corner many of us have the difficult task of purchasing a gift for dad. Gifts already require a bit of guessing or luck, but for some reason it’s even more difficult on Father’s Day.
I have a few go to gifts that I learned my dad appreciates, but sometimes you want to give something more unique clothes, beer, cigars, mugs or any of the other cliché gifts. Read on for a perfect gift for cooking these Sweet Potato Sausage Dogs.
This year I found a fun kitchen appliance perfect for any guy in your life. The Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill is your foolproof way to perfectly cooked sausages, every time, without any effort or hands-on time.
I love grilling and being outdoors, but what about the times when it’s dark or raining outside, or you don’t have time to fire up the grill. This is perfect for juicy, seared sausages no matter when you want them.
To test it out I created a unique recipe besides merely putting a sausage on a bun with toppings. For those gluten-free dads, or one’s watching their carbs, you can enjoy Sweet Potato Sausage Dogs.
As you can see in the pictures, these gluten free sausage dogs totally look like the real thing. You’d almost think these were sitting atop real buns. Enjoy them like a regular hot dog, or for less messy eating use a fork and knife.
