Carrot dogs are the answer to a busy holiday cookout. Yes, your read that right, these dogs are plant-based magic and are made from carrots.

Can’t stomach the thought of another veggie burger at a cookout? My Cajun Potato Vegan Po’ Boy with Mushroom Gravy is perfect for a change of pace. You could make a loose mushroom gravy and keep it warm in a small slow cooker and heat up the pre-baked fries in your oven, air fryer, or on the grill!
