How to Prepare Delicious Grilled Carrot Dogs With BBQ Mustard Paste

This Is the Way to Use Carrots at Your BBQ

Planning a BBQ party catering to diverse eating habits can be a challenge. However, there’s a surprising solution to delight your vegetarians and health-conscious friends alike- grilled carrot dogs. Here is an easy recipe to transform simple grilled carrots into flavorful hot dog substitutes with a sweet and spicy mustard paste.

Ingredients (for 6 Pieces):

● 6 peeled carrots (about 1-inch in diameter)

● 6 hot dog buns

● 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

● ¼ cup yellow mustard

● ½ teaspoon dry ground mustard

● 1 teaspoon granulated garlic

● ½ teaspoon ground cumin

● 1 teaspoon paprika



● Fill a pot with water and place it on high heat until it comes to a rolling boil.

● Cut the peeled carrots to the length of a hot dog bun, approximately 6 inches.

● Carefully place the carrot pieces into the boiling water and boil for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are knife-tender.

● Drain the cooked carrot pieces. Use a paper towel to gently pat them dry and place them on a sheet tray or plate.

● Combine the yellow mustard, Dijon mustard, garlic, paprika, cumin, and ground mustard in a small bowl. Mix them together until they form a smooth paste.

● Generously smear the mustard paste over the carrot pieces. Make sure to coat all sides evenly to add a tanginess and depth of flavor to the carrots.

● Prepare your grill for direct medium heat, preheating it to a temperature range of 350°F to 450°F (175°C to 230°C).

● Place the mustard-coated carrot pieces directly on the grill grates, turning several times to ensure they cook evenly. Grill the carrots for approximately 6-8 minutes or until they develop grill marks.

● Place the hot dog buns on the grill, cut side down. Grill them for about 45-60 seconds until they are lightly toasted and marked by the grill.

● Once all the carrots and buns are grilled, remove them from the heat. Place a grilled carrot in each bun and serve them hot with your favorite toppings and condiments.
