We're having that tonight, lol!

Actually, Allen Brothers has spoiled us for any other dogs, but they're so expensive we only eat them once a year.

Yes, you will find them in the deli section. I would buy the Boar's Head in NC, here in Chicago I buy the Dietz & Watson which I don't think were available when I lived in NC. They're more expensive but I rarely eat hot dogs.

Inspector Callahan knows the score when it comes to hot dogs.

Hot dogs are my "go to" meat when I'm really tired, in a hurry, camping, or dealing with a power outage.
These ideas also work for times where there is no bread or hot dog buns in the house.

For example, I can boil the hot dogs and a canned veggie, like green beans (about 1/2 cup), strain, and then use the water to rehydrate instant mashed potatoes. Cut up the hot dogs, mix with the mashed potatoes and beans, add a little shredded or cubed cheese to it, and it's dinner.

Ramen noodles (leave out the seasoning packet) can be used instead of potatoes for another one pan meal.

I also use hot dogs for a "left over" stir fry meal. Sometimes I have leftover bits of veggies and/or rice. I slice the hot dogs into thin (1/4") pieces and add them to the wok oil for a minute or so, then fry the veggies and rice, add them all back together for 20 seconds and serve. If you have any leftover bits of sausage, mix that in, too.

No, this sort of thing is not good for one's waistline long-term but for an emergency meal at home or in camp, it's filling and cooks up with a minimum of fuel.

We don't have either one here but another healthier option is: (and they come in chicken or turkey)
Angus Hot Dogs: Angus Beef Hot Dogs & Angus Dogs - Oscar Mayer

Can't find that green relish for a Chicago dog. By the way (posted what goes on one on page 1 )
there were several little places (years ago) that sometimes would put cucumbers and lettuce on it too.

Great ideas here. Here are a few of ways I make mine:

corn, ketchup and pik nik potato strings.

tomato sauce, onions and pik nik.

a pickle spear and mustard

I agree with chili. There is this hotdog joint in the town I grew up and they have the best chili dog hot dogs. Boy do I miss eating them. They were so good. I have been tempted to find out if I get a hotdog without a bun and if the ingredients in the chili is gluten free.

I've had a few Chicago dogs since I've lived here. They're very good even though they are extremely messy. I've never seen the bright green relish anywhere except Chicago and it's the only relish that I'll eat.

Do you live in Chicago?

Any one got any creative ideas for toppings other than the usual mustard/ketchup.
And some interesting side dish/s to go with them?

Thanks
The key is to get good quality hot dogs. Try the butcher or Boar's Head or at least Hebrew National.

You can go chicago style and put peppers, chopped onion, pickles, tomatoes...

I just saw this yesterday after I checked out at Costco. I about kicked myself because we just spent over 30.00 at Ruby Tuesdays on one of the most disgusting meals we ever had.

I told my husband that eating the $1.50 hot dog combo at Costco just 2 times instead of going out for lunch MORE than pays for your entire Costco membership, in savings.
