    Since I am blogging on my lunch hour, I’ll blog about food. There used to be a Chicago style Hot Dog place in my neighborhood. It closed down. It has been a while. Many of you don't know anything about these hot dogs. Many of you look at the picture and think, "Yuck! A hotdog is not supposed to have tomatoes and peppers!" Many of you need to try it. The Chicago style Hot Dog is a treat to be enjoyed as it comes. Don't custom order it. Don't get anything on the side. The hot dog was invented in Chicago. They do it right. What West Texas has done for Fajitas, Chicago has done for the hot dog. You can't improve on perfection.

    It starts with a poppy seed bun. Then add an all beef sausage (Vienna Beef is the traditional brand). Next, Mustard, PickleWedge, relish, Tomato Wedges and Sport Peppers. The Peppers are the key. Finally top with Season Salt (Celery salt is also traditional).

    Hat Tip to Rush for the idea.
    Hat Tip to Allen Brothers Steaks for the picture.
