Romancing the dog


Hot dogs are romantic, everyone has a fondness for the frankfurter. There are vegan hot dogs, there are vegetarian hot dogs, turkey, chicken and salmon hot dogs - there is a hot dog out there for everyone.



Before I get all caught up in the franks please take a minute and vote for my recipe over at Foodista for Candy Cap Flan - all you need to do is click that little widget up there.


There is actually a National Hot Dog & Sausage Council just in case you need to file some official paperwork. The hot dog is serious and it has its own etiquette.


Perhaps you were wondering who eats the most of these luscious tube steaks, No need to guess its New York City!

snowelf said...

I had no doubt NY would be #1!!

We were just talking yesterday about how hot dogs at baseball games are second to none. Although I've never had a true NY hot dog yet. ;) I'm betting NY hot dogs are like Chicago Pizza.

The Diva on a Diet said...

Excellent, I *do* need to file some official paperwork. And, I'd really like a hot dog too ... fresh off the grill. Is it summer yet?

Off to vote for you ... good luck!

Bob said...

Mmmmm, hot dogs. Love it.

Must be supermarket sales..Detroit has more chili dog places than you can shake a stick at!

Angie's Recipes said...

Nuts (or beans?) in hot dog...They look so different!

Jenn said...

I remember the first time I went to NY the first thing I ate was a hot dog from one of the sidewalk vendors. That was the first agenda on my list. hahaha... It probably will be the first I do next I go back there.

Emily Ziegler said...

I have been craving a good hot dog lately! Great post!

I would have thought it would have been Chicago - I loves the Chicago hotdog - no ketchup, celery salt, sport peppers.

Um, and this past summer I deep fat fried hot dogs - amazing!

Oh, and when you wrap it in bacon and THEN deep fat fry it? Even better! :D

oneshotbeyond said...

goodness you made hot dogs look so darn good!!!

Marjie said...

We always have locally made hot dogs in our fridge. The boys love them!

George Gaston said...

Hot dogs have been a favorite since I was a little boy. Even to this day, I get excited about eating a hot dog.

I have to confess there was a brief period that I only eat hot dogs without the hot dog. I like the roll with all the fixings ~ chili, mustard, chopped onions, ketchup. I must say I got some strange looks when I ordered them out ~ mom just looked at me funny.

But now, I want a hot dog in my hot dog ~ with all the above and anything that makes it good. Your photographs are very tempting and now I want a hot dog.... Thanks.

Joanne said...

Hmmm so you have possibly found the one new yorker who is not crazy about hot dogs. I haven't eaten one in more than ten years now...but I am intrigued by salmon hot dogs. Where can I find one of those?

teresa said...

mmmmm, hot dog! you can't beat it!

Doc said...

Love the dogs & put a in for you at Foodista

theUngourmet said...

Such awesome looking dogs!! I'm off to vote now!

tipper said...

I just read an interesting historical account of a gentlemen who lived in Southern Appalachia where I do. He had a special fondness for hotdogs. When he was drafted for WWII that was his first question in chow line-do you have any hotdogs?

Jumped over and voted for you-have to vote for something that has persimmons in it-they remind me of childhood-when you didn't care to eat them off the ground where they fell from the tree.

Creative Mish said...

Yum! All beef is my favorite. My Handyman and I have always joked about buying a stand to take to the local fairs etc and calling it Wilt's Wieners. But he has to have the perfect dog. His choice aren't available here. Have to get them from Minnesota...

Vickie said...

I loved the quirky video and your photos are very tempting. I'm adding "have a NY hotdog" to my bucket list.

TavoLini said...

LOL--how is "South Carolina" listed as a city??

Glad to see the South was represented on that list--although I have to say that Detroit was unfairly left out. No one calls it a "hot dog" in Detroit--its a "coney" or "kielbasa"

Irregardless of all that, you are doing New York quite well with that dog, Dog!

TavoLini said...

(is your neighborhood in the middle of the lower east rainforest?) video makes me long for summer!

♥peachkins♥ said...

I love chili dogs...yours is mouthwatering. Here we have Red Hotdogs.....

Lea Ann said...

Torture! I've not had a hotdog in months and after looking at those photos, you can bet I'll be having one soon. Loved the video. Do all those tropical rain forest birds live in Central Park? ;-)

Selba said...

I'm drooling right now... It must be really delicious!

T.W. Barritt at Culinary Types said...

Katherine Aucoin said...

When I'm in NYC next week, I plan to get an official NY hotdog and a pretzel!

Wow you make a hot do seem so sexy!

Maris said...

Wow. I had no idea there was a Hot Dog and Sausage council. Imagine being the president of that company!

Nutmeg Nanny said...

I love hot dogs! My favorite is hands down Rutt's Hut in Clifton, NJ...yum! Who can resist a deep fried dog?

BTW my favorite way to eat a dirty water dog is sauerkraut, onion and yellow mustard...yum!

Sippity Sup said...

Finally a bloggy with some doggy! Hot doggy I mean. GREG

I once had a vienna sausage hot dog in the streets of boston during a fest, I absolutely fell in love with the taste, after seeing this reminds me so much of that...

Jamie said...

What I'd love to see is exactly the kind of dog eaten in those top dog-eating cities to see how they differ! And I love a good dog! We used to go once a year to Salsamaggiore (in Italy when we lived in Milan and husband went for a yearly convention in this city), husband would bring us just to eat a hotdog wrapped in fluffy biscuit dough sold from a street cart near the convention center. Fabulous! The best dog I've ever eaten!

MaryMoh said...

I seldom eat hot dogs but this one I would really like. It looks soooo good.

My Carolina Kitchen said...

I love a good hot dog and we like 'em burned. Your chili dog looks sooo good and it's breakfast time here.
And I voted. Good luck.

Tangled Noodle said...

I'm so picky about my dogs - I buy from only two places here and the only condiment that goes on it is a garlic mustard. However, yours here are dressed might fine!

pigpigscorner said...

Wow amazing looking dog!

Pam said...

We had chili dogs for dinner last night. EXCELLENT photos!

Velva said...

Hot dogs are fabulous!!! Your photo is really,really good. Seriously, it made me crave a good Kosher dog.

You have my vote! Good luck with the contest.

Debbie said...

Daniel said...

In Montreal (where I hail from originally) we have hot dogs affectionately known as "steamies". They are a steamed dog on a steamed bun, with mustard, coleslaw and onions. They used to be 2 for a buck. Add a large bag of home made fries and you could feed a family of six for $10 :)

My Favorite is the Chicago Dog.
