Chicago Dogs Chicago Style Hot Dogs - Go Cubs Go

Pin It Now!


But not just any Hot Dogs...

These are the LEGENDARY CHICAGO DOGS... A Chicago-style hot dog, Chicago Dog, or Chicago Red Hot is an all-beef frankfurter on a poppy seed bun, originating from the city of Chicago, Illinois. The hot dog is topped with yellow mustard, chopped white onions, bright green sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled sport peppers and a dash of celery salt.  The complete assembly of a Chicago hot dog is said to be "dragged through the garden" due to the many toppings.  The method for cooking the hot dog itself varies depending on the vendor's preference. Most often they are steamed, water-simmered, or less often grilled over charcoal (in which case they are referred to as "char-dogs").

The canonical recipe does not include ketchup, and there is a widely shared, strong opinion among many Chicagoans and aficionados that ketchup is unacceptable.   A number of Chicago hot dog vendors do not offer ketchup as a condiment.

It may be difficult to find Poppy Seed Hot Dog Buns.  If so, I have a recipe for easy to make (Bread machine easy) Poppy Seed hot Dog Buns.  Just double click the blue letters for the easy to follow recipe.

The whole "Dragged through the Garden" feel of this dog is true.  Most folks get their dog, start picking off the peppers, tomatoes, even the pickle spear.  My personal theory is that mid-westerners are smart and frugal enough to order a salad with their dogs.

Chicago Dogs are indeed the PERFECT food for your GO CUBS GO World Series Party...

Enjoy indeed!
