NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Chicago-style hot dog: The toppings are just as important as the order they are applied to the hot dog. The goal is to evenly distribute the toppings so you get a taste of each ingredient with every bite. Remember, dress the dog and not the bun!

Prep Time: 30 Minutes

Yields:  6–8 Servings

Ingredients:

1 package hot dogs ("Best's Kosher®", "Vienna Beef®" or other all beef dog)

1 package poppy seed hot dog buns

¼ cup yellow mustard

¼ cup Rolf's® “Deli Style” Sweet Pickle Relish

½ cup chopped white onions

2 tomatoes, cored and sliced into wedges

1 jar Claussen® Kosher Dill Pickles

1 jar sport peppers

¼ cup celery salt

Method:

Start out by placing your heated hot dog on the bun and add the toppings in the following order:

Yellow mustard–Squirt the mustard directly on the dog from one end to the other.

Bright green relish–Add a generous amount of sweet relish.

Freshly chopped onions–Place onions on top of the dog. The amount depends on your personal taste.

Two tomato wedges–The tomatoes should be placed along the crevice between the top of the bun and the hot dog.

Pickle spear or slice–The pickle should be placed in the crevice between the bottom of the bun and the hot dog.

Two sport peppers–Traditionally, 2 sport peppers are added on top of a Chicago dog, but the sport pepper is often considered an optional topping.

Celery salt–Sprinkle a dash of celery salt over the dog. 

Cincinnati-style hot dog: It's also served as a “Cheese Coney.” The toppings are just as important as the order they are applied to the hot dog. The goal is to evenly distribute the toppings so you get a taste of each ingredient with every bite. Remember, dress the dog and not the bun!
