I liked it. The mayo and garlic sauce was a nice twist. And I didn't go too heavy on the jerk seasoning since I have a lot of sensitive eaters in my home. But I liked the flavor and will make it again. Read More

This was just ok. I am not sure what it was that that didn't make me love it. It might have been the combination of pineapple and seasoning with the cheese. Read More

I thought this was just ok and hubby didn't care for them at all. Maybe it was the pineapple but can't really pinpoint what we didn't like. This was fun to try for something different though...Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I'm usually very picky about my hotdogs but I decided to go out of my comfort zone and try this recipe. It was different but not in a bad way. I probably couldn't eat these all the time but it was a nice change. We liked that the flavors melded together in an interesting way. Super tasty we will be trying this one again! Read More

This is a new family favorite. My kids loved it with the big flavors and especially with the crushed pineapple on top. I will be making this again to the request of myself and the kids. Read More

My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe although we both agreed that the overall flavor tasted more Asian than Jerk. We used high quality dogs and used Cajun seasoning as suggested. Each element was singly tasted and beautifully complimented each other. The Ball Park Buns are truly the way to go! They have become our all-time favorite vehicle for hamburgers hot dogs and beyond!

I will definitely make this again and again! Love the combination of flavor and easy to make. The only change I would consider next time is to increase the amount of caramelized onion. Read More

8.8.20... https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/256905/monterey-jerk-dog/... Thumbs up. I didn't read directions --- didn't grill the buns. I scored the dogs rather than butterfly. Okay I read some of the directions. 'Could've used more onions. They cook down considerably. 'Thought the hot doggie & onions would melt the cheese but it didn't. 'Oven visit or foil once assembled if again. Read More

This really turned out well. Since it was optional I left off the pineapple and did everything else as instructed. I found the slight sweetness of th mayo was a good balance wit the seasoning. Will make these again!! Read More
