Fourth of July weekend is upon us and that means so are more grilling opportunities. Also approaching is the annual Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, the most American form of celebration allowed on live television. For your own party, throw out your ketchup and substitute these toppings instead for a more filling and creative cookout.
