I love hot dogs, but WOW, am I particular about them.
First, We only buy Hebrew Nationals or Nathan's. You remember those red Zeiglers you ate hundreds of as a kid? man, I loved those things, but there's no way I'd eat one today.
Second, I prefer them grilled like when I was a kid. But we have a charcoal grill unlike the gas my parents have. So sticking them in the oven on broil or the toaster oven on toast is a much easier option. Boiled? gag me with a spoon.
Third, toppings. I like my hot dogs two ways.
1. with mustard, sneaky pete's sauce (when we have it) and sour kraut -- that's been dried a little. I don't like the bun to get soggy.
2. with texas pete sauce and white diced onions and when we have them crushed up dip style golden flake potato chips.And now that I've typed this out, I'm beginning to think I'm not the unpicky eater I think I am. ;-) maybe I'm a little picky or borderline obsessive.
How do you like your hot dogs, if at all?
