Chicago Hot Dog
I went to Chicago ten years ago to keep my wife company on a business trip. As she worked I toured the great neighborhood filled city of Chicago. While I was walking down one of the streets I passed a hot dog restaurant. I knew Chicago was famous for sausages just by watching old Saturday Night Live skits of the Da Bears where they ate brats and drank lots of beer so I decided to go in and get a hot dog.
It was no ordinary hot dog. In a poppy seed bun they put in a freshly grilled hot dog with a dill pickle spear on one side and tomato slices on the other side sprinkled with celery salt. In between they spread mustard and relish. It was topped with diced onions and sport peppers to give it a little kick.
I never saw a hot dog like this as I was used to the traditional boiled hot dog with ketchup and mustard. Pretty boring. Since I was walking around I took it to go and I got as far as a half block before I had to turn around and get another one. For the rest of the trip I had to go every day and get two Chicago hot dogs. Here’s the recipe: http://www.simplefoodie.com/recipes/chicago_style_hot_dog.htm
