Chicago-Style Hot Dog

Chicago-Style Hot Dog
In Chicago, where hot dog stands far out number hamburger joints, there is one and only one classic recipe, and very little variation from it. It is the perfect hot dog.What's the story behind these famous hot-dogs.
Source taken from Wikipedia:
A Chicago-style hot dog is a steamed or boiled, never broiled all-beef hot dog on a poppy seed bun, which originated in the city of Chicago, Illinois. The hot dog is topped with mustard, onion, sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled sport peppers, and a dash of celery salt; sometimes, but not always, cucumber slices. Ketchup is not used on a Chicago-style hot dog.

These hot-buns are hot favorite of my son and hubby. Since we don't consume beef I have used chicken franks. Sometime it's very hard to find these chicken franks. If I tend to find some I would grab a few packets and there will be a feast at home for everyone.:) These are very easy to prepare and can be fix in seconds. I prefer to make my own sweet green pickle relish rather them buying them at stores. Hope all will try these Chicago style Dogs at home.These would be an ideal snack for the coming winter season with hot beverage of your choice in evenings to enjoy!!

Ingredient

Serving Size:6

6 chicken hot dog
6 poppy-seed hot dog bun
yellow mustard
few slices of tomato wedges
few dill pickle spear

For sweet green pickle relish:
1/4 cup shredded cucumbers
1/4 cup finely chipped onions
1tbsp finely chopped sport peppers
1tbsp vinegar
dashes of celery salt
1tsp sugar

Preparation Method:
I prefer to grill all my hot-dogs instead of steaming them.I usually toast the buns on the grill right next to the meat. I simply open them up and lay them on the grates. Depending on how hot the grill is, they can burn in as little as 30 seconds, so do not leave your buns unattended. Remove and arrange in a plate. In a large bowl add all the ingredient mentioned in relish. Give a good mix.Place hot dog in the grilled bun.Pile on the toppings in this order: yellow mustard and sweet green pickle relish.The tomatoes should be nestled between the hot dog and the top of the bun. Place the pickle between the hot dog and the bottom of the bun. I like to drizzle a bit more mustard and tomato sauce which is never used in preparing these delicious dogs.

If you like to have your bun and hot-dogs steamed just:-
Boil a pot of water and reduce heat to low, place hot dog in water, and cook 5 minutes or until done. Remove hot dog and set aside. Carefully place a steamer basket into the pot and steam the hot dog bun 2 minutes or until warm.
