Gimme that golf course hot dog with Dijon mustard and those onions that have probably been out in the sun way too long but I eat them anyway.
Nothing like a turndog
😂 you really painted a picture, I’ve never been golfing but I can taste those onions
They were always my favorite part about golfing.
Vienna beef. Poppy seed bun. Sport peppers. Mustard. Relish. Pickle. Green Relish.
This also needs tomato and celery salt to be a proper Chicago dog!
I thought it was poppy seed bun? or is that just for a polish?
Yes! I just woke up when I wrote this.
they are the best though. i crave one every couple weeks.
Absolutely yes. This. And the relish has to be unnaturally bright green or it doesn’t count.
Look up International House of Hotdogs out of Anchorage Alaska
The food is fire and in the three years I lived there his customer base and fame has grown exponentially, and that’s in an area where hotdog carts are a staple, especially after clubbing
Thanks for the tip! I will check them out. Ive never been to Alaska but that’s smart about posting up near hungry club-goers.
A drunk 2am hotdog when it’s cold outside is the most comforting thing. But see. This dude got crazy popular and he’s not even open during clubbing hours haha
That’s crazy, what do you think sets their hotdogs apart?
Edit: It seems like they have a nice variety from their menu. I am definitely trying the reindeer sausage if/when I go to Alaska.
Ketchup, mustard, encased in clear resin.
This hit me
Oooooh Beryl Shershewsky has a whole video on how hot dogs are eaten around the world on YouTube, and it’s great. She’s an absolute gem of a human being, and is great at highlighting other cultures and individuals and how food is part of who we are. Highly recommend the video! ALSO, personally, the best “hot dog” I’ve ever had was a Shuco when I was in Guatemala a couple years ago. It was on a toasted, almost charred bun, with lettuce and onion and mayo and bacon and guac, and just so much stuff and it was out of this world. It was definitely a maximalist approach to a hot dog, they just threw it all on there lol. Honestly some of the best food that a country has to offer is often the street food.
The hotdog your describing sounds incredible, I love guacamole on hotdogs, and really toasted bread. I will definitely add those videos to my research list. Thank you!
Sonora hot dog! Dog is wrapped in bacon, the bun is toasted. Got a little bit of mayo, some jalapeno relish, queso fresco, and refried beans.
That sounds incredible, the bread is usually the bolillo rolls right?
Was looking for this! Incredible!
I would road trip half way a shameful number of hours across the country for some of these...
Someone already described my hot dog, it's mustard, chili, and minced onion. But hot dog chili isn't the same as chili you'd eat from a bowl. I learned how to make hot dog chili, so I'll share with you.
When you go to brown the ground beef, put a little water in the pan. The water makes it take longer to come up to heat, breaks down connective tissue. You get finer ground beef this way, little bits instead of bigger chunks. Then the water evaporates and you brown the meat.
I like onion so I cook them with the beef and put onions on top. Maybe skip them in the sauce, some people hate onions.
Use regular chili powder, add ketchup and mustard.
Edit: I forgot to mention the canned tomatoes
This coney sauce is great!
Thank you for sharing the chili recipe, I didn’t know that about water helping make the meat fine. I’m definitely trying that, I’ve never been able to break up and cook ground meat super fine like hotdog chili.
Happy to help!
But I forgot to mention the tomatoes! Obviously it uses canned tomatoes.
I’d be curious as to the number of people that want chili on a dog but dislike onions cooked in the chili.
I’ll never forget the lady who told me about how her kids thought they didn’t like onions, but every time she made lasagna she used finely minced onions. She said her kids noticed every time she didn’t include it, they preferred it with onions unknowingly.
My theory is that most people have a bad experience with raw onions that leave a strong taste. Many years ago I had onions with ketchup and salt on the recommendation of my then boyfriend who could eat that like French fries. After one bite it felt like my stomach was on fire lol. It probably wasn’t until onion rings or the animal style sauce at in-n-out that made me really appreciate and crave onions.
I want onions in the chili but I want them *cooked in the chili*, not dropped in at the end so they're still raw. Because yeah, bad experiences with raw onions.
And I want cheese on my chili dog. Not good cheese, cheap shitty bright yellow "cheese product." I want a cheese-analog that looks like a cartoon and is suspiciously reminiscent of plastic. I'd also like the option of shredded cheddar in case I'm with someone who doesn't know about my secret shameful love of off-brand velveeta.
Yeah the processed cheese just hits a little different, I know what you mean. Queso dip, grilled cheese, burgers, all great with American cheese or velveeta. One of my dad’s favorite snacks was to microwave a Kraft single until it made a crispy cheese pillow. My step-mom forbade him from eating more of the “cancer cheese”. Probably not the best to microwave stuff in plastic lol
You're not that hot dog dude, are you?
Not yet but I might be.
Chicago style - classic Vienna Frank’s sport peppers, radioactive relish, and mustard. Celery salt.
Brat - caramelized onions, stone ground mustard, sauerkraut.
Artisanal - fancy sausage, smoked Gouda/Brie, or some other fancy cheese, and an bougie sauce like a duck fat reduction.
Mostly the first two yhough
You're missing a dill pickle spear on the Chicago dog.
Thanks for sending me down the rabbit hole of radioactive relish lol I didn’t know it’s that way because of the blue dye in Chicago style relish.
Agreed the first two sound really good. Simple just hits different. Brats are being considered, to go with the homemade sauerkraut and kimchi.
I had a really good hot dog once with banh mi toppings - pickled carrots and daikon, cucumber, cilantro, mayonnaise
I’m a big fan of pickling, that sounds tasty
What’s up with the “no ketchup on a hot dog” thing I see all the time? Not to cause a fight among you all.... cuz so long it’s a real frank, I’d eat it off the ground, ketchup or not.
Personally, ketchup and hotdogs are a childhood favorite of mine. Hebrew national hot dogs with ketchup or in mac’n cheese is instant nostalgia. I think the saltiness of the hotdog just goes with the sweet of the ketchup. Plus if the ketchup is homemade I bet it makes a big difference.
It’s lame as hell. Ketchup on a hotdog is great. I’d rather have one with just ketchup than one without ketchup where I could choose all the other toppings I wanted.
I think it’s just specific specialty hot dogs, like in Chicago or Seattle. I don’t love em with ketchup, but I’ll eat em with ketchup.
My favourites are mustard, ketchup and diced onions. Or, mustard, ketchup and caramelised onions.
Jalapeno cheddar smoked sausage cut lengthwise and charred on a toasted soft bun with yellow mustard, onion, and a really good sauerkraut. I also love a dog layered with chili and extra sharp cheddar.
Plain. Hot dog boiled plain cheap bun tiny amount of mustard and ketchup. I’m a simple person.
Find a fat yellow man with three hairs on his head, follow him around, and he will put your kids through college
Cream cheese, bacon, and pepperoncinis.
Cream cheese on hot dogs is the truth. You an basically put whatever else the fuck you want on it after that
That sounds really tasty! Is the cream cheese spread on toasted bun or more like a thinned squeezable cream cheese?
Either way. Toasted bun and the warm dog melt it, and it combines with the crispy bacon and the peppers. It’s wonderful.
Usually it's spread on the toasted bun
Two ideas: homemade ketchup. I hate the store bought stuff that almost always has high fructose corn syrup in it. I also don't like putting a cold condiment on hot food. Homemade ketchup just elevates simple food.
My favorite non tradtional dog is a wrapped in a soft pretzel and dipped in a cheese sauce. You could also make a pretzel bun and just use the cheese sauce as a topping. Greasy and fatty, but delicious.
I have always thought about making ketchup but have never tried. I agree 100% the corn syrup makes it too sweet, I usually buy the kind without. The cheesy pretzel-dog sounds incredible too!
There's a good burger spot in Ft. Lauderdale, FL called Tucker's that has homemade ketchup and tater tots. The burgers were good, but the tots and ketchup are why I kept going back. It's those small gourmet touches that makes it feel like I'm spending my money well while treating myself.
That’s how I felt about the onion rings and dipping sauces from Burgr. If I go back to Vegas I’m going back no question.
Full icelandic hot dog
This [little article about Icelandic hotdogs](https://www.icelandairhotels.com/magazine/blog/everything-you-wanted-to-know-about-the-icelandic-hot-dog-mag) was a fun read, I would love to try one if I ever visit Iceland.
They're really good. Every now and then I want to try to recreate them but I know it won't quite be the same.
That kind of quality attention they give their animals really shows through in the meat I bet. When the animals we eat live better, we probably also live better and on top of that they taste better too.
Ok honestly I don’t care too much about the dog itself as it’s primarily a vehicle for the toppings lol.
Bread should be soft and white bun tho.
Should have ketchup, mustard, white onions, pickle relish.
This is the way
cooked on a hot grill over fire, none of that flattop nonsense
raw jalapenos chopped up on it
sriracha and mustard
hell yes that is a hot dog
btw whoever says they dont like hot dogs is a god damn liar amirite! everyone loves a hot dog
My mind was blown when that singer, Grimes, said in an interview that hotdogs are vegan because nobody is killing cows for hotdogs. On one hand she has a point and on the other hand the mental gymnastics to justify eating hotdogs as a vegan is hilarious to me.
yes totally, i mean i'm mostly just joking around about that but i do find it funny because, i know tons of people who say they wont eat a dog but get them to a ball park or something and all of a sudden they have a change of heart.
love a good hot dog!
I like boiled hot dogs with either coleslaw or ketchup and chopped up raw onions. My husband likes hot dogs with cheese sauce and mustard.
First off, it's got to have a quality sausage. No amount of toppings or condiments will make up for a bland, flavorless dog.
Lightly steamed bun, preferably top split. Side split buns always fall apart at the wrong moment.
If you're gonna do chili, it's got to be good. Same goes for kraut.
Sweet onions only, please.
It’s funny, I’d never heard about cutting hotdog buns down the top until today but it makes sense. The crust is more intact at the cut point, whereas cutting from the side the bread is softer and tears easily. I guess I’m just realizing how conditioned I’ve been by buns bought at the grocery store.
Top split buns seem to be a New England thing. Peperidge Farm sells them nationally.
All beef or beef/pork blend. Natural casing. As for toppings - you can't go wrong with a classic like chili/mustard/onions or even just mustard/onions to keep things simple. Another thing - a good hot dog is ruined by a bad bun.
There are no hot dog carts in my part of the world so I don't have any wonderful/horrible stories to tell you.
Agreed, sometimes less is more. I am leaning towards the all beef hotdog, and a wide variety of toppings but maybe one or two types of hotdogs. I was but considering a premium option for these fancy Wagyu hotdogs I saw while shopping. I’ve never tried wagyu but it’s supposed to have nice marbling.
What kind of bun do you prefer, potato, brioche, pretzel..?
I like my buns it steamed!
If it makes you money I'm all for it, however by the time you make whatever meat into a hot dog the marbling is moot. Hotdog makers can add fat or muscle in any ratio they want and it all gets emulsified the same way regardless.
Hotdog ingredients get mixed into a paste before they are stuffed into casings. Delicious paste.
True,🤔 I still would like to try them. I imagine there is a big demand for the wagyu steaks but the hotdogs still use the rest of the animal which I like.
On that note, fat is so crazy when it comes to flavor. So important to balance with the meat, that’s why I’m looking into the fat to meat ratios to see which methods cooking methods suite which sausages/hotdogs better.
Semi related, Germany is on my list of places to visit too. I read they have over 1,500 varieties of sausage 🤯
My favorite minimalist hot dog is from my local socal german sausage maker / market. Knockwurst on a german bread bun with some hot mustard.
A trip to Germany on a sausage tour gets my full support. You won't be disappointed.
Pro tip: Leave room to try other stuff and beer.
We had these hot dogs at my college where they were spicy thick ones. And the main catering kitchen would make a sauce combining brown sugar and buffalo wing sauce. Then with pickle spears and sauerkraut with hash slices on the dog to make it crispy and open up more. The bomb.
Tell me more about these hash slices, like potato hash browns cut up?
Oh meant hash slices cut into the hot dog. A cross cross pattern before you put them on the grill. It opens the dog up as it cooks and exposes more surfaces to be crispy. Also helps with taking bites easier of the hot dog has a thick casing to it.
Ahh that makes more sense, thanks for the clarification.
natural casing, potato bun, mustard
Toasted bun or steamed, and which kind of mustard?
I say rep all the cities (or maybe at least as many as is practical for a cart).
👀 that’s a nice chart! Thank you!
My favorite hot dog is with a slice of cheese, pineapple-jalapeño salsa and a slice of bacon
Grilled bread, grilled dog, guacamole, some sort of cabbage salad, mustard, ketchup, Mayo and optional hot sauce
All beef hot dog, relish, yellow mustard and sweet relish with chopped raw onion.
Throw some hot salted fries... nirvana.
All this talk of hotdogs is making me hungry. I usually go with a cheese dog with ketchup and mustard or a chili cheese dog. Yummm. Also, potato bun is pretty great
Toronto street meat - Cheese squeeze, Mayo, BBQ sauce, a very generous amount of pickles, and sometimes one line of spicy mustard.
Please don't skimp on quality with the dogs or buns.
Steamed or grilled depending on mood. If I'm getting one from a cart I'll probably be expecting steamed or boiled.
Dog has to be of the red variety (Fairbury Tomboys are the best the 1/4 lb Nathan's Collosal (not red) is good too) just make sure it got some heft. Skinny dogs get lost.
Bun HAS to be soft and (sorry) moist. If it's dry, flakey or hard I'll be disappointed.
I'm simple with toppings. Give me ketchup and some hot cheese whiz. Takes me back to a place called W.C. Frank's when I was a kid.
Don't mind some kraut, good mustard or chili on occasion.
Chili cheese dogs are my absolute favourite.
Hot grill in Clifton NJ, dog all the way!
The other day I wrapped a hotdog* in a pita. It was really good, but it kept slipping out the end. So now my ideal hotdog is one that is wrapped in a pita, but that, for some reason, won't slip out. (I guess I need a high-friction pita?)
\*It wasn't sold as a "hotdog". The best hotdogs are sold as "bratwurst" or "smoked sausage" or "kielbasa" or something like that.
> (I guess I need a high-friction pita?)
My next band is going to be The High Friction Pitas.
I go two ways. One, a seattle dog, with thinly sliced jalepenos and soft cream cheese. The other, extra crispy, with ketchup, diced onions and relish. Onions gotta be small enough to eat, you know? Quarter inch is perfect.
Oh yum! Love a plain dog on a soft bun prepared with a sprinkle of cheddar under the hot dog snd on top. Then add a moderate amount of chili, and top it with sweet pickle relish. Prepare to need a fork. Oh. Forgot. Microwave it till cheese melts.
Tubby dog has been serving amazingly delicious and weird dogs for roughly 20 years. Things like kraut and cheese, PB&J, or bacon and potato chips are great choices.
Ketchup and Dijon mustard.
Keepin it simple
My favorite is Chicago style. Mustard, relish (neon green for bonus points), diced onions, sliced tomatoes, slices cucumber, dill pickle spear, sport peppers, celery salt on a steamed poppy seed bun.
I’ve gotta say, Chicago style dogs are pretty up there for me. Or the outlaw post-football game hotdog wrapped in bacon with grilled onions.
I would highly recommend you look into Chilean “completos”. The fresh bread really makes it.
Tie between Chicago dogs and sauerkraut+mustard dogs. I always prefer a dog to have a casing, though.
Sauerkraut Sauerkraut Sauerkraut Sauerkraut Sauerkraut Sauerkraut Sauerkraut Sauerkraut
Needs a crispy skin and to be boiled.
Think he means snappy, like a Nathan’s dog.
No like a kogels
Oh ok. Snappy though, right?
Like it has a snap to it cause of the casing
Preferred method of attaining crispy outside? Grilled, flat top, rollers, fried..?
Boiled! It just needs casing
How does it get crispy skin if it’s boiled? Like does it retain juices more and have more of a snappy bite? I’ll have to look into this further 🤔
It doesn't get "crispy". The filling swells when heated causing the natural casing to tighten. I prefer steaming the dog so it doesn't absorb water. The flavor is deeper.
My worry with boiling is that too much fat will be released, steaming does seem like it would retain the juices better..
Idk the casing has a snap when boiled
True casing is animal gut. The heating process melts the fats and the thing expands. It pops when you bite it. (Not bc of the cooking method or anything 'crispy' like frying)
My favorite is the classic, yellow mustard, onions, and sauerkraut. Mmmmmm.
Brazilian hot dogs are the bomb!! Meaty sauce, hot dog, corn, potatoes sticks, cheese, special mayo ( fresh Mayo with lemon and garlic) (missing peas and eggs but i don't like that on my dogs)
That sounds really good! I wonder is the meaty sauce thicker like a chili or more like a gravy? Homemade Mayo is definitely on the table, maybe even a chipotle mayo, and taqueria salsa.
Brazilians love potato sticks. It’s hard to find them in the u.s.
First of all, I prefer a microwaved hot dog if I'm making it because starting up the BBQ isn't worth a hot dog.
Second, I eat these massive Halal chicken dogs that are fucking amazing. They're bigger than regular jumbo dogs.
They get microwaved for 45 seconds, then I put some finely diced onion in the bun, the hot dog goes in, and then I microwave that for 30 seconds. Then I top it off with mustard and if I feel like ketchup that goes on too.
And if you don't like it, you're a nerd for getting uppity about a hot dog!
True, for us the effort of getting the grill going usually means we’re going to have leftovers at least. For indoor methods I usually fry them in the pan (or a grill pan), or in the toaster oven. Personally, unless there’s some good blistering on the hotdog skin from the microwave, I’d even sooner eat a cold grilled hot dog lol.
Air Fryer to the rescue!!!
Potato salad (trust me on this).
Grilled>roller>steamed>pan fried>>>>>>>>boiled. Please dont boil your dogs. Steamed is good because you can also steam the buns and make them nice and soft.
All I can tell you is Ketchup is heresy.
Fuck that. I’m not eating a hotdog without ketchup. Brats and sausages are different though.
What’s your preference?
The best hog dog I have ever had was in my hometown. The guy retired which sucks. He did a "cajun" dog in a poppy seed bun. I am not sure where he got that particular dog but its the best. It was basically Chicago style with mustard, neon green relish, diced tomatoes, onion, sports pepper and a thin sliced pickle spear. Topped off with celery salt.
The guy was inducted into the hall of fame.
That is the definition of a Chicago dog. And now I'm craving one.
That sounds delicious, do you think the Cajun hotdog was like an andouille sausage?
It was not a sausage it was a hot dog for sure. I suspect that they were these here but I have not ordered them to confirm.
One of my proudest upvotes of a negative comment.
A vegetarian/vegan option would be appreciated, plenty of people who aren’t veg don’t eat pork too.
Before there were any faux meat options i just got a grilled bun with alllllll the toppings
[crif dog has the menu you should serve](https://www.crifdogs.com/menu/)
Idk man, grimes says hot dogs are vegan because they don’t kill cows for hotdogs 😂 but yeah I hear you. I am leaning towards beef franks on account of flavor and so it can be kosher, along with some kind of sammich with all the fixings like you mentioned and likely beans/grilled veg. I’m not a fan of the veggie-hotdogs, even grilled vegetables on a hot dog bun would be preferable IMO.
Tbh I’m not a big fan of faux meat myself! But you could do a [carrot dog](https://www.eatingwell.com/recipe/257875/bbq-carrot-dogs/) which sounds insane but i swear you would sell them!
foot long in split top roll with bacon and melted cheese
I assume this is you: https://youtu.be/M8wzKsI5KiA
😂 what did I just watch lol
now I might have to give chowder try
It’s the amazing world of flapjack! And I highly recommend it and chowder if you don’t mind some dumb humor mixed with some gross humor.
😂 oh man I’m out of the Cartoon Network loop, yeah I’ll check out Flapjack
My favorite is a Keizer roll, brat, cream cheese, sauerkraut, spicy mustard and sriracha
Not the biggest hot dog fan but I'll have one once in a while. Has to be off a grill though.
Or on a stick over an open fire.
Dill relish spicy mustard red onions.
Bratwurst is my hot dog.
Fun fact from German class that nobody asked for: brat actually refers to the bread and wursts are the sausage. I know this and still call them brats haha
I have two:
1 thinly sliced onion and yellow mustard
2 chili cheese dog
Any onion preference?
Maxwell Street Polish!
It's a polish sausage with lots of yellow mustard, grilled onions, and two sport peppers.
steamed, lightly toasted bun, yellow mustard, onions
Natural casing, boiled and finished on the griddle while you toast a top sliced (also called New England style) bun.
Sweet relish, yellow mustard and onion for toppings.
In New England you will also see both the dog and bun steamed, but I prefer the method above.
I tend to do Mayo, cheese, slaw, chili, and lots of raw onions.
Carolina dogs are really good. Especially some of the gas stations around here. It’s a steamed bun with slaw(sweet), chili, and raw onions.
I’ve really come to appreciate a steamed potato bun in recent years, but the above dogs are just plain white buns from the store. I wouldn’t recommend anything fancy.
It doesn’t work well with the potato buns, for some reason, but if you can work it out, I started buttering them outside of the buns and crisping them in a cast iron pan. I could see you doing it with a sandwich press.
Crisped bread is my preference too. Plus it gives you a good excuse to soak up any tasty pan/griddle flavors 😚
Nice! I just happened to do it for giggles, and it turned out great.
Chili, cheese, corn chips like fritos and sour cream. Hot dog is an all beef kosher hotdog. The only exception is sausages or hotdogs made with things like game meats and other meats not usually used for making hotdogs like ostrich.
We had a way popular hot dog cart in our town. Miles above the rest. Turns out he cooked his dogs in Coca Cola.
That is fascinating, I have never heard of cooking a hotdog in coke but now I might have to now in order to satisfy my curiosity.
I mean lots of ppl put soda in pork roasts or bbq pork
I think there’s something about the acidity or vinegar
Chicago dog, except instead of steamed dog it’s cooked over fire. Hot dogs really benefit from that mallaird reaction. Natural casing preferred, it I’ll eat it any way
Hot dog with sriracha mustard and sauerkraut
I'm a simple man with simple tastes:
Split top bun, all beef dog, mustard, chili, onions, shredded sharp cheddar
Cheese coney all the way.
Top the dog with chili, diced onion, yellow mustard, and a mound of shredded cheddar. Hot sauce encouraged.
Research the favorite hot dog styles in your city.
Sonoran hotdogs are pretty popular around here. What’s your favorite?
I'm in NYC and just do a basic mustard and sourkraut. I think potato salad would be good and coleslaw as well.
All those sides sound good! I bet the hotdogs in New York are really good. Someday I’m going to eat a hotdog and a slice of foldable pizza in New York.
Please come! We have a famous deli here called Katz's. They make their own pastrami and corned beef. It's kosher style. Expensive but very tasty.
The pictures from there got me hungry 👀 good thing New Yorkers walk so much so they can eat good food like this lol
Hahaha! I think we do walk a lot. Have you been to New York? ActionKid has some great YouTube videos of his walks and bike rides around different neighborhoods here. He's really good.
I haven’t been but I’d like to go sometime! The subway rats scare me though haha
Hahaha! They do exist! Best thing for you is to take a bus!
[Things I can’t unsee lol](https://www.reddit.com/r/ThatsInsane/comments/obxb02/enormous_rat_in_the_ny_subway/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)
Toasted toast bun, dog slit in the middle but not all the way through and grilled to blistered inside and out, chili (no beans), cheese, diced onions, and mustard on the bun before everything else.
Spiral cut, cooked over a flame of some kind. Great base for any of your favorite toppings.
I wonder if bacon could fit in the groove of the spiral…hmm this sounds pretty tasty.
When I lived in the desolate hellhole known as Cumberland MD, many people would probably tell you that Curtis' Famous Wieners is probably their favorite dogs. However, I was enlightened one particular Friday of heavy drinking at Niners Canal pub. They have a hot dog (or did) called jack the ripper that put cream cheese, Sriracha, bacon and scallions on a hot dog, and god damn if that wasn't life changing. What honestly did it for me was just the cream cheese, cream cheese belongs on all hot dogs.
There's a restaurant in Tarrytown, NY called Lubin-N-Links. Google their menu. Tons of awesome choices. It always takes me at least 10 minutes to decide.
Their menu is fantastic, had me at ‘Silly for Chili’ 😂 adding this to the visit list, thanks for the recommendation!
Pleasure! I'm not even usually a hot dog person but you can see why this place would be impossible to resist.
Girthy Moist Weiner's.
You just found the name of your hod dog cart lol.
If I saw that I'd hit it up.
Warm bun, spicy mistard, chili, cheese, cole slaw, diced onion.
Potato bread bun, bratwurst, chili, cheddar cheese, onion.
If you don't have brats, then use chicken dogs. And you could use pepperjack cheese instead of cheddar if you like a little bit of heat.
Mustard, chili, onions, and slaw.
Grilled onions, peppers, and Dijon
Wiener sauce on the bun. Dog rolled in Frank’s. Topped with nacho cheese, then some jarred/sliced jalapeños. Magic.
Me we heard of Weiner sauce but I'm on bored for the rest! I'll have to try this. What's weiner sauce?
I’m not sure I’ve ever been asked that question! It’s a meat sauce, sort of like a chili I suppose you could say. Honestly, I’m pretty lazy sometimes, so I skip making it - but even without, it’s still a pretty solid combo.
Ohhh! Ok I know what you're saying! I've seen it canned, but wouldn't know how to make it. Kinda looks like Hormel chili no beans. Sorry if that offensive to weiner sauce purists lol
Eh, I’m no purist, if you think something is good, it’s good. I am questioning my memory though, maybe the wiener sauce was on my spicy brown mustard/coleslaw dog. Back east there was a little burger/dog joint I basically lived at. The dog rolled in Frank’s, topped with the nacho cheese and jalapeños I *think* was called the Louisiana lightning on their menu. I don’t remember the slaw dogs name though. But every time I went in, I’d order one of each, then rotate my burger selection. Though I think it was a tie between two (they had like 20 diff combos each for burgers and dogs). The sergeant pepper (burger topped with pepperjack cheese, peppercorn ranch and banana peppers) and the other was topped with white cheddar cheese, a pile of jalapeños, with onion rings over top of them like a volcano, and drizzled with bbq sauce.
BBQ sauce, pickled jalapenos and nacho cheese. Maybe onions.
Hornet chili, raw diced onions, Mayo, and shredded cheese. Preferably a Nathan’s. If not that, then a cheap red one that’s be properly charred on a grill.
Split long ways to grill served on a toasted bun with a slice of cheddar, mustard, and dill pickle.
some hot dog out of the glass with mild ikea mustard and ketchup, add some fried onions to it. perfect to me.
I like an all beef dog, a nice snap to the skin and a little char from a grill or flat top.
Always mustard & relish
Sometimes kraut, chili, hot sauce
I like a grilled hot dog that’s a bit on charred side. A slice of the most processed american cheese at the bottom of a toasted bun topped with ketchup, mustard, and some good quality pickle slices. Sometimes with bacon, but just fine without it.
Snappy griller, charred, steamed split top bun, horseradish mustard. Unbelievable.
Just ketchup and lime Mayo
