Favorite Hotdog Toppings

Danimal n Hustler May 16, 2007 02:17 AM

My all-time favorite hotdog is with some coleslaw and tomatoes...

I also like the sour cream and tomatoes

Also the 7-11 style toppings are good (onions, pico de gallo, jalapenos)

does anyone have any good recipes to share?

    I like spicy mustard and sauerkraut, but it can't be that mushy bland canned sauerkraut- it has to be the good stuff.

      Believe it or not, mustard, mayonnaise and a sprinkling of celery seed makes a great topping..........as does Sabrett's onion sauce for hot dogs (warmed).

        #1 is Chicago style and my preferred dog topping combo.

            #1 is also my all time fave. dont forget the poppy seed bun (though the OP didn't ask about it).

            2nd runner up is sauerkraut with lots of deli mustard on bockwurst in toasted bun.

          So very close to mine. #3, definitely. #2, yes though I often don't have jalapenos and #1...well, I've never had a dog in Chicago, so I don't now. Sounds like fun though.

            the chicago style dog is kind of like a meal on a bun with all the toppings.

            thanks for the clarification!

            I love hotdogs with kimchee, and maybe some onions. Mustard and kimchee just don't seem to mix somehow.

                It really is.

                I want to eat a kimchee burger.

                If it is a good hotdog then typically just a little yellow mustard does the trick. When I visit home and the hotdogs are grilled and basted with bbq sauce i like to top them with a bit of grilled onion. I will admit I grew up eating boiled hotdogs with ketchup and mustard and these still sometimes hit the spot as well =)

                        and cream cheese was one of the toppings... caramelized onion too...

                        we wrap bacon around the dog before grilling.

                          I'm a Chicagoan where hot dogs are a religion and cream cheese would be a mortal sin. Where are you from?

                      chili and chopped onion on a fried dog. second best is a lightly grilled then broiled dog wrapped in bacon with american cheese. hardest part, imho, is finding a decent bun.

                                That sounds like a good combo- something to balance the spiciness of the Sriracha.

                                Me, I make something affectionately referred to as the "spicy stinky dog"- Sriracha, yellow mustard, thinly sliced thai bird chilies, and finely diced raw red onion. Colorful, spicy and delicious.

                                  In Seattle you can get cream cheese on the bun at any of the street vendor stands. I've tried to negotiate this in other cities with no luck. It sounds disgusting but it's amazing...

                                      Stadium Mustard from the Cleveland municipal stadium (its been around like 50+ years and has been requested on 3 space shuttle missions.)

                                      iF you're not in cleveland, you can buy it online. It makes a hot dog a religious experience.

                                        Loren, It must be Bertman's stadium mustard and kraut. The absolute best is when you can get the bun toasted.

                                        Sam, you understand things! I mean, seriously, there's so much on here about the "proper" way to eat a hot dog. Well, I'm going to say there is none.

                                        Hot dog orthodoxy is just plain silly.

                                        I've had them many different ways and have enjoyed every one (almost).

                                        LAcupcake, is this also called a "Lincoln Log sandwich"? I ask because Carmella served up a Lincoln Log sandwiches on the Sopranos last night. It looked like hot dogs & cream cheese on a hot dog bun. I couldn't find anything on Chowhound, Google, or Wikipedia called a "Lincoln Log" sandwich, but I did see find Seattle Style hot dogs with cream cheese, onions and kraut. Cream cheese on a hot dog is new to me...

                                          I've never heard of it referred to as a lincoln log sandwich before but i suppose that would make sense. Everyone I've ever run this by thinks it sounds absolutely disgusting but it is sooooo good! we're not talking like an inch thick schmear on the bun but more of a really thin spread. give it a try and see what you think. :)

                                                  I like mustard, sauerkraut, and onion. HATE relish!

                                                        Crema? You mean like mascarpone? Mixed with bacon and jalapeños? Please tell me that's some other definition of crema.

                                                          Mexican Crema is more like Creme Fraiche. The frankfurter is commonly wrapped in Bacon... then griddled along with chopped onions. After the wrapped dog is nestled in the griddled bun its topped it carmelized onions, chopped tomatoes & pickled jalapenos. Finally the its drizzled with Crema to balance out the acidity & spice of the jalapenos.

                                                          IMHO, the best way to eat a dog.... anywhere.

These were hot dogs topped with a meat sauce which was somewhere between a beanless chili and a sloppy Joe mixture. I could never get off the bus without treating myself to one of these. Memorable!

They come wrapped in a plastic wrapper and are microwavable, nice for a change of pace. There are three flavors too, regular, spicy and something else.

I grew up eating hotdogs this way because my parents did (they are form Texas, could this be a southern thing or CA thing???). LOVE the combo. But all the toppings above make me drool and want to experiment. Especially the carmelized onions.

                                                                                    The toppings on a North Carolina hot dog (served "all the way") are mustard, chili, onions and slaw.

                                                                                    If one orders a North Carolina hot dog "no slaw," this means mustard, chili, onions, and hold the slaw.

                                                                                    A note about "traditional" ingredients and preparation of the NC hot dog:

                                                                                    * mustard is usually the cheapo, bright yellow, French's variety (or lesser quality)
                                                                                    * chili (no beans)
                                                                                    * onion is chopped; often yellow onion is used, but sometimes Vidalia
                                                                                    * slaw is often NC barbecue-style slaw (rather than mayo-based cole slaw)

                                                                                    tuh-duh. NC Hot Dog 101

Then spread some guacamole, some cabbage (just cooked, no mayo), the sausage (many options including chorizo), simple ketchup, mustard and mayonaise. The best include some Chirmol (Grilled skin tomato sauce with parsley, chopped onions, lemon juice, salt and very spicy little peppers called chiltepes)

Ketchup was optional - I opted out. As bad as it sounds, it was delicious, and I've made this again at home, although my maiden voyage with it was in Panama.

I wouldn't even consider looking for one, ordering one or eating one. The worst hamburgers I ever tasted were on that side of the Atlantic.

                                                                                                                European sausages? Sure. Hot dogs? Out of the question.

For me, putting mayo on a hot dog is a little (no, actually a lot) like putting mayo on corned beef or pastrami. You might do it. You might even like it. But it's certainly unconventional (maybe even weird).

There are some 30 toppings or so at many street vendors. The most popular (and delicious) are mashed potatoes, corn, a cream cheese called, 'catupiry', vinaigrette (basically a fresh relish with chopped peppers, tomatoes, onions, white vinegar or lime juice, s & p, and possibly cucumber), as well as mayo, and finally topped with hickory stick potatoes. This is a meal on a bun...sometimes you can even taste the dog. We love the vinagrette salad and often make it at home with Sahlen's weiners from Buffalo.

                                                                                                                                                        I had some hot dogs in Copenhagen once. They were served with ketchup, not mustard, though what they called "ketchup" tasted nothing like Heinz or Hunts in the US, and came out of a toothpaste tube. Apparently that's how many condiments are packaged there. It was more like a very bland tomato sauce and was much thinner than US ketchups.

The different components have a much stronger taste than a relatively mild hot dog. They do not enhance the flavor of the dog but overpower it.

It was an interesting variation, but I'm not sure I'd go for it every time.

                                                                                                                                                                      1. re: Jenny Ondioline

At most, they're 1/4 - 1/2 inch in diameter. Most places don't make the sauce you refer to; they just put out various condiments / toppings which usually have high vinegary content and a much stronger taste. That little bite of meat can't begin to compete and is easily overpowered. To me, toppings don't enhance the basic ingredient, they cover it up.

                                                                                                                                                                        1. re: mucho gordo

Even I use a bit of spicy, brown mustard on some things such as corned beef or pastrami; meats with a more pronounced flavor than a hot dog has.
