Sun’s out, buns out. Fire up the grill, and bust out these delicious vegan hot dogs for your next barbecue bash.

Let’s be frank: Hot dogs made of cows, pigs, or other animals’ parts have a whole lot of gross things in them that would spoil anyone’s supper. You won’t believe how hot dogs are really made. The good news is that there are various outstanding vegan hot dog brands to choose from that are sure to hit a home run with even the biggest wiener fans.

Tofurky Beer Brats

Your next cookout wouldn’t be complete without Tofurky Beer Brats! Add a dollop of mustard and a scoop of sauerkraut for true barbecue bliss.

Lightlife Smart Dogs

These are perfect to grill, sauté, or boil. Throw on the ketchup, mustard, relish, and onions and you’ve got yourself a top dog.

Field Roast Frankfurters

You can be sure of one thing—these frankfurters are frankly yummy. A unique blend of spices, garlic, and onion give these bad boys the bold flavor that only the best franks have.

Yves The Good Dog

High in protein and iron and featuring a taste to steal the show make these as good as gold. Switch things up and try one of the other delicious hot dog varieties that Yves offers, including Veggie, Veggie Tofu, and Jumbo Veggie.

Tofurky Jumbo Hot Dogs

You know what they say: Bigger is better, and hot dogs are no exception to this rule. With 17 grams of protein and big enough so that you can go the extra yard with condiments and toppings, Tofurky knocks it out of the park.

365 Everyday Value Veggie Dogs

Look for these links made from a delicious blend of tofu and pea protein at Whole Foods.

Beyond Sausage Brat Original

OK, maybe bratwursts aren’t exactly a “hot dog” in the traditional sense, but these brats deserve a mention for those who like something different on the grill. These go great with sauerkraut, grilled onions, and mustard.


To top it all off, these unique vegan hot dog recipes and toppings will inspire your imagination and really impress your friends. Pigs, cows, and other animals who are killed to end up on the barbecue are ripped away from their families, live in crowded and filthy conditions, and are denied everything that’s natural and important to them.

So next time the barbecue is calling, grill up a vegan hot dog and leave animals off your plate.
