Oscar Mayer Lunch at the Southern + Giveaway | Thriftanista in the City


Oscar Mayer Lunch at the Southern + Giveaway

A couple of weeks ago, I attended an Oscar Mayer Selects luncheon at the Southern.  I was treated to a cooking demo and taste testing of "southern" style hot dogs prepared by Chef Cary Taylor.

Chef Taylor teamed up with Oscar Mayer to put a new twist on traditional hot dogs. Using one of the newest additions to the Selects line -- the Chicago style hot dogs,  he created:

The South Side - topped with fried green tomatoes, dill pickled okra, and piccalilli relish

The Pit Stop - topped with smoked pork butt, georgia peach mustard BBQ sauce, and chipped cole slaw

The Kentucky Burgoo - topped with summer succotash, pork fat mayo, and fried okra

I've never been much of a hot dog person but I do love southern cuisine so I was excited to give them a try. I was pleasantly surprised. They were very all very flavorful, fresh tasting and filling.

The hot dogs are also all beef and have no artificial preservatives.

The hot dogs!
 I admit it. I tried all of them. They were all just as good as they looked.

Mac & Cheese on a hot dog?
This was the last sample to come out and it was worth the wait and extra pound I gained eating it.
V would have loved this one.

 Couldn't leave without taking a picture in front of the Oscar Mayer food truck.

I had a great time sampling the new creations and chatting with Chicago bloggers. The "South Side" will be served on the Southern's menu this summer.
