Heck, even I like them and they have mustard and relish on them! Two things I don't particularly care for!
So we try to recreate things that we like at home ... and of course, these are pretty dang easy. So much so that when Princess had to contribute to a "Food Tradition" project at school her senior year, this is what she took ... (we added green food coloring to the relish to make it brighter green and cut the dogs and buns in half)
Here's what you need:
Dogs ... these need to be a good quality dog. This time around I used the Oscar Meyer Select Chicago style dogs. I like these as they don't have a whole lot of extras in them!
Buns - squishy white buns. If you can find them, with black sesame seeds. I can never find!
diced white onions
sport peppers - these are super hot and I never eat them but a little juice is kind of good
tomato - either thin wedged or slices (never diced!)
Cook your dogs in a large skillet with a little water in the pan to sort of steam fry them.
Cool Grill Pan
With a heavy lid to press down on
Squirt mustard on one side of bun. Place your tomato (if using) on other side. Add n your hot dog and top with onions on side and relish on other. Put the pickle over the top and the sport pepper along side. Squish bun and enjoy over a plate!
LOVE potato rolls!
Condiments ... this is what makes it a Chicago Style Hot Dog
We didn't do the tomato or the pickle spear as you see, therefore it was NOT dragged through the garden.
Not a necessity but it brings back memories of the Midwest for me
