Winni Recipes | Chicago Hot Dogs


· 8 all-beef natural casing hot dogs

· 8 poppy seed hot dog buns or potato buns

· Yellow mustard for topping

· Sweet pickle relish for topping

· 2 medium tomatoes, cut into 8 wedges each

· 1 small yellow onion, diced

· 8 dill pickle spears

· 16 sport peppers or pepperoncini, whole or diced

· Celery salt for topping


Prepare the grill:

· Heat a charcoal or gas grill to medium heat, 350°F. You should be able to hold your hand over the grill for about 3 seconds before it’s too hot.

Grill the hot dogs:

· Place the hot dogs on the grill. Turn them with tongs as they cook, about 8 minutes total. You want a good amount of color on them. Transfer to a platter.

Build the Chicago dogs:

· Place a grilled hot dog in a bun. Top with yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, 2 tomato wedges, onions, 1 dill pickle spear, and 2 sport peppers.

· The celery salt is strong, so you only need a light sprinkle over the dog to finish it up. Assemble the remaining hot dogs. Eat immediately!
