Smart Dog® Tater Tot Skewers

1 Pack Lightlife® Smart Dogs®

1 pound bag of frozen tater tots (thawed)

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt and black pepper or seasoning of your choice

Ketchup and mustard for dipping                            


Preheat your grill to a high heat.

Slice the Smart Dogs® into three diagonal pieces. Take a long metal skewer and thread one of those pieces on to the base of the skewer. Next add a tater tot being careful not to tear it. Repeat this process until the skewer is completely filled. Once all of the skewers are ready to grill, brush them on one side with the olive oil. Season each one and place onto your hot grill. Grill for about 1-2 minutes and then turn them over and repeat. They will be done when you start to see the Smart Dogs® blister.

Serve at once with the ketchup and mustard for dipping.

Where to Buy

These veggie hot dogs weren’t too bad but I typically wouldn’t buy them because of the price and because I’m the only one that likes them in my house. They smelled really bad while cooking my daughter didn’t like that. I would recommend them to people that are on a strict veggie diet since they would fit there lifestyle and preferences better. I myself thought they were good but I didn’t like the smell either. If my family would eat them I would purchase again but since they don’t there is no need to purchase for just myself.


I thought they were great, the kids didnt know the difference! That was the best part. When the kids are the hotdog eaters and they cannot tell the difference that is great!


I was happy to try veggie hot dogs - have been a vegetarian for about a decade now. This was filling & was I'm the shape of a hot dog but that was about it. Obviously I wasn't hoping that it would taste like it but definitely was hoping, that it would be a lot more flavorful.


My family and I loved the Lightlife Veggie Hot Dogs! They have all the taste of a regular hot dog without the byproducts and caloroes. I will continue to purchase these for my household.


I really wanted to try these hotdogs but had to go out of state at the time. They really looked delicious and in an easy to open package. I would deff recommend.
