Round Hot Dogs

Hot dogs shaped like hamburgers. So you don't have to buy separate hot dog and hamburger buns. Available from Rastelli's.

The inventors of these think they're unique enough to be patentable. But their patent application is still pending.

Um . . . you do know that "Bologna is just hotdog pancakes" is an old meme, right? Google it if you don't believe me.

This is just thick-cut bologna, done with a coarse-tooth saw to leave ridges.

As for dog-shaped burgers: I accidentally 'invented' that many years ago. When cleaning my fridge, I moved a new package of hamburger into the freezer, then forgot to move it back. Next day, I wanted to fix something, but all I had was this slab of frozen hamburger. Not wanting to cook the whole thing at once, and not wanting to wait for it to thaw, I cut off 1/2" thick strips (backsaw). Worked great.

Since then, twice I've had hot dog buns but no hamburger buns, so I shaped the patties appropriately.

It's sort of neat, but I don't see it as being so popular that it could be marketed.

My kids really like pickle burgers... Wrap hamburger around a dill pickle spear & cook it as you would a hamburger. Scrumpious! Got yourself a hot dog shaped hamburger with the pickle built in!
