A Round Hot Dog: This is A Thing Now?

What can’t America do?

When we’re either just too lazy to put a regular ol’ hot dog on a bun or feel like we deserve better, we innovate, just like the makers at Rastelli’s Round Dog.

Rastelli’s Round Dog is simply a flat hot dog shaped like a hamburger patty.  It was created by Tony Luke Jr., creator and owner of Tony Luke’s cheesesteaks after he had to use a hamburger bun after running out of hot dog buns.

This thing looks oddly close to a slice of bologna, but Luke says there’s a difference; the round dog has ridges perfect for the grill.

Rastelli’s Round Dogs aren’t as cheap as bologna, either.  A 24-pack of “patties” will cost ya around $84 on QVC.
