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

The veggie hotdogs were life! I love the fact that they are vegan and they taste so good. I had a family get together and these hot dogs were a great hit.


I eat a lot of vegetarian food because most of them can be as healthy as non-vegetarian food. However, I am not a big fan of Lightlife smart dogs. Although it is healthy and full of protein, the texture is rubbery. I want food that taste great not food that imitates meat but taste weird.


The flavor was ok, but I did not like the texture at all. I would not buy them, not a fan. It was hard to find them unless I went to a pricey store. Would not waste my money.


We really enjoyed the Smart Dogs, these are more like real good quality hot dogs. They smell amazing and taste great, even the kids loved them.


I never thought that veggie hot dogs would taste this good. I got to sample them free through Social Nature and I am glad I did. I absolutely love that 5% of annual profits are given back to charitable organizations.
