When I think of football, a few things come to mind: friends, fall, fun, and FOOD. Definitely food. There’s something very special about Game Day food isn’t there? Usually, when we have people over I’ll fix a crock pot of pulled pork and serve pulled pork sliders on KING’S HAWAIIAN® Original Hawaiian Sweet Dinner Rolls. These are my go-to rolls for entertaining. I’ve even been known to make mini-sandwiches with them for my kids’ lunches. #MomWin

But this year I thought I’d mix things up a bit. Instead of sliders, I headed to my local HEB and picked up KING’S HAWAIIAN® Hot Dog buns in the bakery section for the base of my little creation – Aloha Dogs.

Cook the red onions in a cast iron skillet, which will give them a little bit of char. After the onions have cooked for 2 to 3 minutes, push them to the side and add the pineapple rounds (I used fresh, not canned). Cook them for about 2 minutes per side until they get nice and brown.

Set the red onions aside. Cut the pineapple rounds into small chunks and mix with the chopped green onions, green pepper, red pepper and cilantro. This is your pineapple salsa and let me tell you, it’s incredible and full of flavor.

Grill the hot dogs.

To assemble the Aloha Dogs, place a hot dog in a hot dog bun. Then scoop on top some of the pineapple salsa and the red onions you mixed with the BBQ sauce.
