Paneer Dogs

Paneer Dogs

Are you vegetarian and have never tried a hot dog? Me either! Whenever I went to a BBQ I would always feel left out.  I decided to make paneer dogs!! Completely vegetarian and easy to make. I’m sure these are way more flavorful than the real thing anyways LOL. The best thing about this is that you can prep everything the day or two before and it makes for easy cleanup as well.  Make these this grilling season, even the meat lovers will want in on it. 

If you do try it make sure to tag me @Zheelicious. I would love to see your creation. Have a happy and safe long weekend. I hope you guys enjoy this!

Stay happy, stay hungry!
