Homemade Chicago Style Hot Dogs with Tomato Onion and Peppers
Hold Back From Dicing Tomatoes When Topping Chicago-Style Hot Dogs
Chicago-style hot dogs utilize seven distinct toppings to deliver a unique overall taste. One such ingredient is fresh tomato, which should be quartered, not diced.
By quartering the tomato into thick slices and wedging them between the hot dog and the top of the bun, you'll taste the juicy tomato in every single bite.
Besides fresh tomato wedges, authentic Chicago-style hot dogs have yellow mustard, sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, white onion, pickled sport peppers, and celery salt.
A Chicago-style hot dog is always made with an all-beef frank, preferably from Vienna Beef, which is redder in color than other hot dogs. It is usually boiled.
