Michigan Style  Chicago  Hot Dog

The key to a great hot dog is the meat.
They must be natural casing,all beef dogs. Vienna from Chicago,Koegel’s from Flint,MI,and Nueske’s from Wisconsin & Kowalski from Hamtramck,MI are the brands that we favor.
The buns must have poppy seeds.
Sport peppers are available almost anywhere.They are the little hot peppers packed in vinegar.

Instructions

  1. 1Simmer the hot dogs in a covered sauce pan until they plump up nicely(up to 10 minutes).
  2. 2Place the hot dogs into the buns.(We warm them for 30 seconds in the microwave,or steam them for a minute or 2)
  3. 3Apply mustard(use a squirt bottle for ease of application),onions,relish,2 wedges of Tomato,3 Sport peppers.Apply celery salt over the length of the dog.
