It’s June and it’s almost officially summer! Baseball season has begun and one food comes to mind: hot dogs!
I haven’t always been the biggest hot dog fan, but I do enjoy a hot dog at the ballpark, and once in a while I can’t resist a good chili dog.
In Chicago, where our company is based, hot dog brands and hot dog ingredients are a serious business. People have strong opinions about what hot dog ingredients belong on the ultimate hot dog. Some prefer kosher hot dogs, others prefer Vienna.
A traditional, Chicago-style hot dog is a Vienna Beef hot dog, topped with diced onions, neon relish, peppers, yellow mustard, celery salt, a kosher pickle spear, and fresh tomatoes on a steamed poppy seed bun. No ketchup! (I love ketchup, don’t tell!)
