Chicago Dog with Everything
This was our delicious dinner tonight. We were in Chicago last weekend and brought these poppy seed buns back on the plane with us. They don’t make poppy seed buns in California. All our Chicago friends out here go crazy for “real” Chicago dogs. This was so good and worth the trouble of carrying poppy seed buns on the plane.
In Chicago this type of garnish is called “dragging it through the garden”. The celery salt is a key ingredient here and adds to the fresh garden taste.
Cook organic beef hot dogs in simmering water and dress with mustard, relish, chopped onions, sport peppers, (or your favorite pickled peppers), tomatoes, and celery salt*.
* I was out of celery salt so I made my own by grinding celery seed with kosher salt in the mortar and pestle. Yum!
There really is no beating a Chicago dog.
