RECIPE: Chicago Dog

Updated: Mar 4, 2020

Pickles, peppers, tomatoes, and mustard: is this a burger disguised as a hot dog? It's the best of both worlds. —INGRAIN, Summer 2019

Poppyseed buns are authentic, but a plain or sesame bun is a fine substitute. Neon green relish is a uniquely Chicago thing; look for those like Vienna’s Chicago-style relish.

Makes 4 dogs

4 all-beef franks

4 poppyseed buns

Yellow mustard (Ballpark)

Neon green pickle relish (Vienna Chicago-style)

1 white onion

2 plum tomatoes

4 dill pickle spears

8 to 12 sport peppers

Sprinkle of celery salt

STEAM 4 all-beef franks and place in 4 poppyseed buns (warmed/steamed).


Dogs with a squiggle of yellow mustard + a spoonful of neon green pickle relish and sprinkle lightly with white onions (finely chopped).

NESTLE 2 plum tomato slices + dill pickle spear + several sport peppers around or on top of dog. Dust lightly with celery salt and serve.
