When the weather is warm and the corn is sweet, it’s the perfect time to get out and grill this dinnertime treat!

Grilled Street Corn Hot Dogs

If there are two foods my family loves to grill in the summer they are hot dogs and corn. This recipe combines the two by serving fan-favorite Eisenberg beef franks with a zesty Mexican-inspired street corn topping.

The prep is so easy and the end result is guaranteed to be your favorite spin on this staple American summer food!

Grilled Street Corn Hot Dogs


  • 4 Eisenberg hot dogs
  • 4 Heinen's brioche buns
  • 6 ears fresh sweet corn or one bag Heinen’s frozen sweet corn
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and diced
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • 2 green onion stalks, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup mayo
  • ¾ cup Heinen's crumbled feta cheese or queso fresco
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 Tbsp. Brianna's cilantro lime dressing, for drizzling


  1. Preheat the grill to 425˚F and spray the grill grates with Heinen’s avocado oil spray.
  2. Spritz the ears of corn with avocado oil spray and place them on the grill. Close the hood and let cook for 3 minutes, then flip. Allow to cook for another 3-5 minutes. Remove from the grill and set aside to cool.
  3. Place the hot dogs on the grill. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Place the buns on the hot grill for the last couple of minutes until toasted.
  4. Turn off the grill but leave the hot dogs and buns on it to keep warm.
  5. Once the corn is cool to the touch, shave the kernels off of each cob with a sharp knife.
  6. Place the kernels in a mixing bowl, add the rest of the ingredients, excluding the hot dogs and buns, and mix well.
  7. Slice a thin slit long ways in each hotdog. This allows the street corn to get into every bite.
  8. Place each hot dog in a toasted bun and top with a generous portion of the street corn.
  9. Drizzle with the cilantro lime dressing and enjoy!

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
