Creative Hot Dogs
Hey all you Chow Hounds, I'm on the look out for new and interesting hot dog recipes or condiment combinations. Feel free to submit your weirdest and wildest!
If you like chili dogs, try this recipe.
* Soft Chorizo
* Cream cheese
Melt equal parts together, stirring to smooth (works well in a crock pot) and keep from burning. You're done.
This is super creamy and tastes great. You can top with green onion if you like onions.
Or, make it like a Tommy's burger and use the sauce, then top with diced tomatoes and white onions. Pretty standard, but the sauce is really tasty, IMO.
Another topping I really like is caramalized onion and smoked gouda cheese.
I don't eat hot dogs often (but really like them) and like lower fat mild sausages like Hillshire Farms turkey smoked sausage and some of the varietes found at Trader Joe's; their brand varietes, Gerhardt's brand, etc. on a mini corn bread muffin.
Your post sparked a memory of a recent Martha Stewart show where she and a guest tasted some 60 varieties of hot dogs dishes from restaurants, delis, stands, etc. The only one that was REALLY different IMO was one topped with a really good macaroni and cheese. MMMMMmmmmmm. Other choices depended on the quality of the hot dog itself, the spices the casing, etc..
While I was looking for that link, I ran across this blog. Sounds very interesting !
Great topic. Looking forward to reading all the responses.
