Favorite Hotdog Toppings

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?

  1. 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 does Sabrett's onion sauce for hot dogs (warmed).

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

          1. re: Megiac

            you are correct. my favorite as well. Luckily I work outside of Chicago, and can get one of these daily if I want,

            1. re: swsidejim

              #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.

              1. re: choctastic

                yes, the for me the poppyseed bun is a must.

          2. re: swsidejim

            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.

            1. re: ccbweb

              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.

              1. re: KaimukiMan

                Mustard, chopped onion, slaw, and chili.

                1. re: KaimukiMan

                  Kimchee is good on things.

                  It really is.

                  I want to eat a kimchee burger.
