Playoff season is the perfect time to serve this Chicago Style Hot Dog Bites recipe inspired by America’s favorite past time, baseball. You can’t help but love this classic one bite snack!
It is so crazy to think it is already fall! We were on the road traveling quite a bit so iIt feels like the summer just flew by. To be honest, sometimes it feels as if we are on a permanent vacation since we live in a hotel in Columbus!
Chicago Style Hot Dog Bites Recipe
Yes you read that correctly, Paul and I are still in the hotel! When we moved from Arizona to Columbus, it was our first time even being in Ohio. The idea was to stay with Extended Stay America for a month or two while we explored the city and found a place to rent. Here’s the thing though, we kinda fell in love with the extended stay lifestyle. I picked ESA because the rooms have a full kitchen. A place where we can enjoy recipes like my Mediterranean White Bean Couscous Salad.
Part of the appeal of the midwest is how much there is to see and do. Like this summer when we decided to spend a weekend in Chicago so Paul could watch his beloved Arizona Diamondbacks play at Wrigley Field. He is a diehard baseball fan and Visiting Wrigley was on his bucket list. We sat through three rain delays, but ended up with a WIN! In fact I got the idea for these Chicago Style Hot Dog Bites during one of those delays.
My high school bestie lives in Chicago which was the other reason we were in town for the weekend. After a long day full of travel and baseball we were ready to head back to the room. Naturally we stayed with ESA and couldn’t have been happier with our digs for the weekend. Quite frankly our room was HUGE!
My favorite part of having a kitchenette is being able to entertain on the road. This Chicago Style Hot Dog Bites recipe completely embodies our experience and it was such an easy appetizer to make when my friend stopped by for a drink. I love that ESA has everything you need to prepare a meal on hand, from dishes to a coffee maker. Except for the food, you need to supply that! lol
Keep scrolling for a look at our room in Chicago. Pictured is king suite, we are currently in a regular king room in Columbus. It’s amazing what you can do when you embrace the tiny living lifestyle!
