It seems that every summer one very important question lingers in the air "Hamburger or hot dog?!" and while we're a fan of the burger (Rach wrote a whole book on 'em!) we can't argue against the love for a delicious bite of a grilled dog sandwiched between a pillowy bun. And it looks like we're not alone—July 23 marks national hot dog day and for good reason! According to recent polls, a quarter of Americans eat only hot dogs during grilling season!

Want some more hot dog celebrating trivia? According to the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council, we eat about 7 billion hot dogs during the summer—that's 818 hot dogs per second! With all that hot dog eating, the mustard and relish combo might get a little old, so check out our 10 twists on a hot dog(pictured above) to spice up your cook out.
