If a traditional Thanksgiving meal isn't your thing, restaurants are offering some … alternative options this year.
Cue the Franksgiving Dog, a $7.50 behemoth from Dirty Frank's Hot Dog Palace topped with mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy and scallions with a side of cranberry jelly.
- It's an annual tradition that people apparently love.
- A vegan option is also available.
🍽️ Our take: Alissa gave it a try, since Dirty Frank's has yet to disappoint.
- It's dense. Keep that in mind if you normally order multiple dogs.
- It's … different.
- Yeah, I think I'll just stick with the Sauerkraut Dog and Cowgirl Carmen. Sorry.
The intrigue: This is just one of several oddities we've stumbled upon.
- In another tradition, Mikey's Late Night Slice teams up with Ray Ray's Hog Pit to make The Gobbler, a turkey, gravy and cranberry pizza.
- Donatos offers a recipe to make stuffing out of its garlic breadsticks.
- White Castle, which has advertised its slider burgers as an alternative to traditional stuffing for 30 years, turned up the heat and debuted two hot-and-spicy recipes on OnlyFans this year.
🥃 Wash it down: Finally, 16-Bit Bar+Arcade is offering "shotsgiving," a five-course "meal" of shots. That's turkey with stuffing, sweet potato, green bean casserole (with an actual green bean), pumpkin pie and cranberry sauce.
Is nothing sacred anymore?
