2 Lightlife® Smart Dogs

1 large yellow onion

5 sweet peppers

Canola oil


1 tsp can sugar

Hotdog buns

Field Roast® Chao Slices

3 thyme sprigs (picked off the stems)

1 wedge of lemon

1 tbsp parsley



Caramelized Onions:

Peel and remove the core from your onion. Cut onion in half, then cut into ⅛ inch slices.

Turn your pan on medium-low, then add onions.

Season with salt and cane sugar, and let onions slowly cook for approximately 30 minutes or until carmelized.

Toss every 5 minutes and (if they appear dry) add a drizzle of canola oil at the 15 minute mark.

At the 20 minute mark, add a tablespoon of water to finish the cooking process.



De-seed your peppers and slice them into a small dice.

Preheat the pan for 1 minute on medium heat.

Once preheated, drizzle enough canola oil to coat the pan.

Add the sweet peppers to your pan, season with salt, black pepper and picked thyme.

Cook for 5-6 minutes and turn off heat.

Add a squeeze of half a lemon and chopped parsley.


Lightlife®  Smart Dog:

Preheat your grill to medium. Once hot, brush the grill with oil.

Add Smart Dogs to the grill and let them cook for 4 minutes as you rotate them every 2 minutes.

At the 4 minute mark, break a slice of Field Roast® Chao in half and add both halves (lengthwise) on top of the Smart Dog, covering the entire surface. Let it cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Toast buns on the grill until golden brown

Top you Smart Dog with the previously prepared peppers and onions.
