Chicago Dogs

Chicago’s dogs, piled with unique condiments and served in poppy seed buns, are a blast to serve at home. While they take a bit of time, they’re worth it. Especially once you get a look at all the happy faces.

ASSEMBLE:

This classic Chicago Dog is easy to make at home. If you can, use hot dogs with natural casings — they'll snap when you bite into them.

Instructions

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Prepare buns, if desired (see first step photo).

Grill hot dogs until well marked and heated through, 4–5 minutes.

Assemble dogs by placing them in buns, then drizzle with mustard and top with relish, onion, and 2 peppers. Tuck 2 tomato halves on one side of each dog, along with a pickle spear; sprinkle with celery salt before serving.

To make poppy seed buns, brush them with egg white, sprinkle with seeds, and bake at 400° for 5 minutes.
