Grilling Vegan Hot Dogs is the best part of this recipe...other than eating them!

We began by grilling our vegan hot dogs on the grill. We have two favorite tricks to make these Vegan Dogs the best — be sure to spray the grill with vegetable cooking spray so the dogs won’t stick too much. And then get the grill good and hot, but make sure not to put the vegan dogs over a direct flame. We want to get that tasty, chargrilled taste without too much charring. 🙂
