Hot dogs are one of the most perfect foods to eat while watching the Super Bowl, but on this snackiest of occasions they should not go unadorned. Here are seven ways to make your game day dogs so much better.

1. Spiralize Them

Ever since F&W Test Kitchen star Justin Chapple unveiled this technique, it's been our unwavering belief that every dog should be spiralized.

2. Stuff Them with Cheese and Wrap Them in Bacon

5. Replace Them with Pastrami and Mushrooms
