Carrot Hot Dogs

(Recipe Courtesy of Food Network & Katie Lee Biegel)


  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup 
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar 
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder 
  • 6 medium carrots, thinner ends trimmed off so that the carrots are the same length as a hot dog bun 
  • 6 hot dog buns 
  • Mustard, coleslaw and crispy fried onions, for serving 


  1. Whisk together the oil, maple syrup, Worcestershire, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder in a shallow baking dish. Add the carrots and toss to coat. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for at least 4 hours and up to overnight.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and preheat a grill to medium-high.
  3. Transfer the foil-covered baking dish to the oven and bake until the carrots are fork-tender, 20 to 25 minutes. Grill the carrots until grill marks appear, a few minutes per side. Serve on the buns with mustard, coleslaw, and crispy fried onions.
