What’s your favorite dog? Wait, let’s rephrase that … what is your favorite hot dog? Whether it’s Cincinnati-style, Italian or even just a plain dog with brown mustard – there are just as many hot dog recipes out there as there are states in the Union.
And in light of National Hot Dog Month, we’ve looked for the most unique and appealing city dog recipes across the land to share … along with their perfect Southern Recipe pork rind pairings (of course).
Baltimore – soft bun with fried bologna wrapped around a fried hot dog and mustard.
Cleveland – kielbasa in a bun (it’s technically not a hot dog, but we’re giving Cleveland a pass), french fries, hot sauce and cole slaw. Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds hit the mark … and then some.
Chicago – poppy seed bun, pickle spear, celery salt, tomatoes, pickled peppers, chopped onions, relish, and mustard. There’s a lot going on here, stay with a complementing flavor like Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds.
Kansas City – sesame seed bun, sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese. We recommend a little heat, try Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy to take it up a notch.
Denver – hot dog in a bun, chopped red onion, green chile sauce, sour cream and chopped jalapenos.
After celebrating Independence Day, you probably think your holiday fun is done for the month. Ha, think again! We’ve scoured event calendars from around the world (ok, we actually just Googled “holidays in July”). But just like all of the pork rind lovers out there, we think quirky is much better than boring. Enjoy … and start celebrating today!
