What’s a True Chicago Hot Dog? Forget the mustard, onion, sweet pickle relish, dill pickle, tomato, sea salt and pickled sport peppers.
The True Chicago Hot Dog’s toppings are meat, more meat, and at least one cheese. After all, Chicago was the meat packing capital of the world. It is still debatable if the cheese is a necessary ingredient.
The example shown above was consumed on June 21, 2010. It is a turkey dog wrapped in american cheese wrapped in bologna with shredded barbecue chicken with macaroni and cheese on top.
Feel free to enjoy a True Chicago hot dog this July 4th weekend!
The True Chicago Dot Dog is an off-shoot of the Elmhurst Dog which I invented in February 2008 which is a turkey dog wrapped in american cheese nestled in a white bun with BBQ pork. The True Chicago Hot Dog doesn’t have to have BBQ Pork or american cheese. It only needs two meat toppings and at least one cheese topping.
