Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday today. Friends & family BBQ’s are one of the quintessential gatherings of summer however, they can be challenging for non meat eaters. Worry no more-I’ve got you covered! I was excited to be able to test out some Lightlife meatless Smart Dogs and I’ve got some creative, healthy hot dog toppers to share with you. Thanks to Lightlife for sponsoring this post and giving me some inspiration. All opinions are my own.
Healthy Veggie Hot Dog Toppers
Sure the usual ketchup & mustard works but why not up your BBQ game a little? I’ve come up with 4 fun and healthy Veggie Hot Dog Toppers for you to wow your guests with at your next BBQ. It’s easy to offer a vegetarian (and healthier) option that is no fuss to throw on the grill right next to your usual fare and these Lightlife Smart Dogs are full of protein and pretty tasty too.
The Tex Mex
Who doesn’t love avocado on everything? Pile up your hot dog with black beans, cheddar cheese, salsa and avocado for a spicy Tex Mex treat.
A classic favorite flavor combo of mozzarella and tomato sauce also works perfectly atop these healthy dogs.
The All American
Some people just love the standard mustard and ketchup on their dogs. Instead of a plain relish throw together a tasty spicy zucchini relish (diced fresh zucchin and spicy red pepper relish) and watch your guests eat it up.
Take your favorite Mediterranean faves-hummus, feta and fresh tomatoes and pile them high for yummy change of pace.
I had most of the ingredients already in my pantry and fridge so whipping up these toppings was super easy. No need to eat boring old hot dogs when you can offer easy creative hot dog toppers your vegetarians and non vegetarians will all scoop right up. Check out my salads page for some yummy sides to go with these.

Tell me what’s your favorite way to top your hot dog? Are you a classic condiment person or do you like to jazz it up?
