The hot dog is the ultimate all-American treat. We enjoy them at sporting events, picnics, and family barbecues. About 20 billion hot dogs are consumed in the U.S. every year-- half of those on Memorial Day weekend alone.
No hot dog is complete without a topping or three. While some of the most popular toppings include ketchup, mustard, and relish, a lot of people are taking this summertime staple to whole new level.
Cities like Chicago have their own hot dog recipes with tomato, a kosher pickle, onion, mustard, neon relish, on a steamed poppy seed bun. Then there are the extreme variety, which include shaved truffles and foie gras. The list of what you can do with a hot dog is endless.
This Memorial Day weekend we challenge you to think outside the box and try one of these gourmet hot dog recipes. They may not include truffles, but these aren’t your average hot dogs.
