Chicken, Beef, Pork, Stuffed with Cheese, Turkey, Soy…. the possibilities are endless! So tonight for dinner, grill up your favorite hot dog and get creative with the toppings! More traditional? Then stick to the classic Chicago Dog with this recipe!



  • 8 all-beef hot dog
  • 8 poppy seed hot dog bun
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup sweet green pickle relish
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 32 tomato wedges
  • 8 dill pickle spear
  • 16 sport peppers
  • 8 dashes celery salt


  1. You can use a hot dog steamer and bun warmer combo to save time. If you don’t have that available, bring a pot of water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, place hot dog in water, and cook 5 minutes or until done. Remove hot dog and set aside. Carefully place a hot dog bun steamer basket into the pot and steam the hot dog bun 2 minutes or until warm.
  2. Place hot dog in a steamed bun. Pile on the toppings in this order: yellow mustard, sweet green pickle relish, onion, tomato wedges, pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt. The tomatoes should be nestled between the hot dog and the top of the bun. Place the pickle between the hot dog and the bottom of the bun. Don’t even think about ketchup!
