How do you like your dogs?

I watched a history of hot dogs on the Food Network yesterday, and they went all over the country asking people what they liked on their hot dogs. It ended up making me hungery for hotdogs, so I boiled up some Ballpark Franks for supper.
I like mine with mustard, kraut, a little sweet relish, and grated cheese on a toasted bun, with the hot dog sitting on top of the goodies. If I'm doing it simple, then it's just mustard and relish or mustard and kraut.

So I'm curious...what do y'all like on your hotdogs?

Well.. the important thing is that they are cooked over a campfire. I really dislike
boiled hotdogs. Then ketchup, onions and more onions, and some dill or sweet pickles.
I like sweet better but Paul likes dill so we have that more often.

Constance - I pretty much like mine like you do - if I have everything then kraut, either brat mustard or the yellow stuff, relish, and a few chopped onions - if I don't have anything I for sure have mustard and relish - which if you are craving a hotdog it works for me!

I REALLY like my bun toasted and I prefer those buns that Howard Johnson's used to have but I never can find them. They also served their clam strips in them.

Forgot to say I really llke them grilled but boiled is just fine too. My favorite grilled dog is a Hebrew National with bacon wrapped around it.

I prefer mine grilled. The condiments I like are mustard, ketchup, chopped onions, and jalapeno slices. If I don't have jalapeno slices a dash or two of hot sauce will do.

Coney Dog, my way

I like a boiled hotdog with mustard on the bottom, then the dog, a big spoonful of thick chili w/beans and onions and grated cheese on top. Nothin' better! Oh, some hot sauce or chopped jalepenos on top if you can take it. Any type of bun
will do.

With nothing on it, no bread either, but with a cup of tomato juice.
You are what you eat.

2 ways for me

Summertime: Cooked on an open fire then served on a bun with mustard & ketchup

Wintertime: Boiled or nucked then served on a bun with Chili Sauce, chopped onions and mustard.
Se non supporta il calore, vattene dalla cucina!

This is great on dogs, brats, etc. If you like mustard, kraut and relish, you'd love this stuff.

I like my dogs reasonably smart, easygoing, don't bark early in the morning or poo everywhere in the house...

Ah, you guys are talking about hotdogs.... I like mine either grilled or broiled, with sauerkraut and german sweet mustard...

*shudder* Never did like hot dogs. Maybe it's because my brother worked part-time at Hormel when he was in high-school...
