The topic came up on Fri night over a few fine ales---what is contained in a "Newark Style" Italian Hot dog? Specifically, is the main ingredient Hot Dog or Italian Sausage? I say Hot Dog, but my friend Alan says Italian Sausage. We agree on the round bread and fried potatoes, etc.--but I think Alan is all wet on Sausage thing. However, he is a highly regarded foodie in the greater New Brunswick area. Also, I was born (and partially raised in Newark) and Alan in Woodbridge (way down in Middlesex County)---perhaps he is used to some local mutant variant of the original....Please help us settle this little dispute...I think the wager was a drink.
