      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

Chicago Hot Dogs

12 posts in this topic

I made Chicago Hot Dogs for dinner tonight in honor of the last game of the first round of playoffs....Washington Nationals vs Chicago Cubs...Rooting for Washington (pitcher Gio Gonzales is a favorite), but it wouldn't break my heart if Chicago repeated their World Series win...as long as someone takes out the Yankees.

Chicago Hot Dogs:

Kosher Hot Dogs (Hebrew National or Nathans)

Fresh sliced sandwich rolls (not hot dog buns...no room)

Mayo

Mustard (your choice of flavor)

Relish (sweet or dill, your choice)

Ketchup (never, according to purists)

celery salt (don't skip this, it's fabulous on the dog)

sauerkraut, warmed

shredded cheese (DH's addition)

diced red onion

diced bell pepper

diced cucumber 

chopped tomato

dill pickle spears

pepperoncini 

Wrap the buns in foil. Steam buns & dogs until hot all the way through...Load 'em up....Enjoy. Feel free to add & subtract to your table's taste.

How do you steam them? There used to be a place on the beach (The Beachcomber)  that served steamed roast beef with provolone on a roll- The sandwich was called a White Cap-

Since the dogs are actually already cooked, just put them on a rack over simmering water to get them hot...I use the same pot for the dogs & buns since I usually only make 1-2 at a time. More people, bigger pot or two pots

a Vegetable steamer works great.  I hate boiled dogs.  I usually do mine in the oven.

When I ate dogs I liked the kind with the natural casing, fried up in a hot skillet with a bit of butter to make the skin crispy- My mom always boiled dogs- She'd cut X's in each end and little slits on the sides to make them looks fancy ..

Edit: I love food threads .. :) .. please keep them coming, my husband and son will love me/you for it .. That sounds terribly 1950 .. but if you only knew .. LMAO ..

I had my first Chicago Dog in a little town called Asheboro NC, at a place called "Mikes" Chicago dog... I was so skeptical.... But now its a favorite of mine and anytime we drive through there I demand to stop. His place is all Cubs colors, and Mike is about as nice of a guy as it gets...

I used to work with a Chicago native. When I found the recipe I brought it in for his critique....apparently his first job at 15 was as a hot dog street vendor....totally approved. When I catered a work meeting during baseball season I served these...he was in heaven...and everyone else really enjoyed the meal.

Not the skinny hot dogs. Nathan's comes both skinny and normal sized.  Vienna Franks are the actual "Chicago" dog.

As a born and raised Chicagoan, I had to add that in :)

For me, they have to be kosher...so if Vienna Franks are kosher, I'm in
