Hot Dogs have always been a staple of my diet…they are quick and easy to cook, are mostly inexpensive, and let’s face it….pretty damned delicious.

Though, when I was pregnant, I avoided eating them because of all the nitrates in most brands. So when I found these Organic Beef Hot Dogs from Applegate, I was pretty excited to give them a try!

Not only are they Organic, uncured, and nitrate-free hot dogs, but they are just 2 Points each. And I have to say, they were delicious!! I feel they were a much better alternative to the Ballpark Turkey Hot Dogs I usually chose.

  1. Applegate also makes a turkey hot dog that is only 1 pt. My husband loved it with spicy relish and mustard for a filling. 3pt lunch with his favorite potato roll hot dog bun

  2. Wow! Grass-fed beef hot dogs? Score. Thanks for this!

  3. I found these in a local health food store, but they were very expensive! Maybe worth the money to anyone really concerned about nitrates. I was shopping at my local supermarket one day recently, and they had Hebrew National hot dogs on a 2 for 1 sale, so just for fun I enter the stats in my trusty WW calculator. Much to my surprise the low fat hot dogs that I've been eating for many years were only 3 Pts+ and the non-fat ones are only 1 Pt+!! So I can have my favorite hot dog with sauerkraut on a sandwich thin Filll'ems for only 4/6 points. I don't pretend they are the healthiest food choice, but I limit my consumption to once-in-a-while and, I must say, thoroughly enjoy them! I watch out for artificial ingredients and preservatives, eat very little packaged food, and generally eat pretty healthy, so I allow myself my favorite hot dog every now and again without being overly concerned about it :-)
