Guy Fieri knows as well as the next American that no two dishes sum up summer better than grilled hot dogs and fresh apple pie.
But now, the Mayor of Flavortown has combined the two together into one horribly delicious (or deliciously horrible?) treat.
Guy Fieri teamed up with Chevrolet to create this concoction. According to AutoBlog, the car company knows that Fieri is a “car enthusiast” and commissioned him to create the dish. On their Twitter page, earlier today, Chevrolet even called him a “true Chevy superfan.”
The apple pie hot dog is a play on an old 1970s commercial that Chevy is famous for. In it, the narrator continuously repeats the phrase, “Baseball, hot dog, apple pie, and Chevrolet,” all words associated with being a true American. Apparently, Chevy wants to bring the simple, catchy ditty into the 21st century.
You can watch the old Chevy commercial below.
Earlier, on his own Twitter page, Guy Fieri posted a video of him putting together the recipe. Fans can watch it and try it out at home. Or, according to AutoBlog, they can grab one in person at the “Field of Dreams” baseball game in Iowa this Thursday. Chevy has a link to the written recipe here.
Guy Fieri Debuts the Apple Pie Hot Dog at “Field of Dreams”
According to the Detroit Free Press, the “Field of Dreams” baseball game will take place in Dyersville, Iowa this Thursday. It’s the location where the iconic 1989 film “Field of Dreams” was filmed, featuring Kevin Costner and Ray Liotta.
In addition to watching the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees battle it out, spectators can also try Chevy’s new apple pie hot dog. The car company is a sponsor of the game, so this is the perfect opportunity for them to try out the concoction on baseball fans.
But what exactly goes into the apple pie hot dog? Guy Fieri breaks it down for viewers in a short one-minute video.
Fieri dives into the recipe step-by-step. He shows the rectangular apple pie crust, the bacon jam you smother on top of that, followed by the apple pie filling. Fieri slaps down a regular hot dog, brushes the crust with some egg wash, and stretches the top pie crust over it all. He bakes it for 18-20 minutes at 350 degrees.
But the recipe’s not over yet. Fieri mixes yellow mustard with apple pie filling in a blender, then pours it over the top of the apple pie hot dog. It’s an… interesting mash-up.
After Fieri takes a bite, he looks at the camera and mumbles, ” You’re gonna dig it!” around a mouthful of apple pie hot dog.
