I cannot imagine ever putting that red stuff on a hot dog...........unless maybe it is a poor quality dog where one would do anything to hide the taste.

    I usually get 2 dogs the first time I go to a new place.

    One dog is "the works" - whatever the house deems is the works - usually it's mustard (I prefer brown), relish, onions, and kraut - a typical New England dog.

    Second dog is always chili and onions.

    but, never ketchup.

      Ketchup on a hot dog works for me usually. Sometimes I like my hot dogs plain (like my burgers). Same with sausages - I would never put mustard or ketchup on wurst of any variety. The taste quality of the meat should speak for itself.

        If there's two things I don't like, it's bridges and mustard. If you wanna burn me up, just put on a bridge with a handful of mustard.

          In the 50's the local drugstore where I worked for the stupendous hourly sum of .50 cents + free lunch or supper, made fabulous hot dogs , broiled in one of those rotisserie things, with catsup,yellow mustard & coleslaw. Still the greatest dog I ever tasted! I make an approximation today, that we still call "Lee's Drugstore Hotdogs' to differentiate from other styles. If it is a weiner or frankfurter , catsup is OK , but not on brats or wursts or any other sausage types!

            You don't put ketchup on a hot dog because you don't.

            My daughter started ordering ketchup on her hot dogs. We put her up for adoption and was taken in by a what seemed to be a good family. I hope she is happy.

                WTF is a "bridge," in this context?

                  We are a mustard-on-hot-dogs family. But one day the three-year-old daughter, who likes ketchup on various foods, got it in her head to try ketchup on her hot dog. Are you sure? Okay. I let her have ketchup. Next hot dog, she went back to mustard. Ha!

                    Does anyone remember Chock full'o Nuts hot dogs? Great rolls, I'm sure they had ketchup on them. I like ketchup AND mustard -- and probably some relish.

                      I remember Chock full'o Nuts hot dogs from my childhood, they were great. I like ketchup on my dogs even though its considered kid stuff. I also like mustard. Sometimes I'll put both on a dog too.

                        Sorry, i hate mustard of any kind, it's ketchup on a dog and for that matter on a brat too. I feel the abuse coming already.

                          Folks,

                          I grew up in western New York. During the summer month there were hotdog shacks everywhere. From the Covered Wagon to Ted's, I lived on hot dogs and curly fries. One thing that was universal was yellow mustard. Not just any mustard but Weber's mustard. Now that I live in Maryland I have to go up to New York to replenish my supply or have it shipped. There is none better. www.webersmustard.com

                          By the way, two hot dogs, one with mustard and one with ketchup and relish. Why deny yourself the joys of both?

                          BB

                            A friend of mine from North Carolina told me about his favorite hot dog "THE SLAW DOG", and I have been eating them ever since.

                            SLAW DOG: Grilled Hot Dog, mustard, ketchup, cole slaw, salt & pepper.

                            If I don't have cole slaw, I just use mustard.

                              If I have ketchup on a hot dog-it has to be cold and it has to be either Hunts or Heinz. No other brand will do. Also, I can't eat a hot dog without onions.

                                The ONLY red stuff that goes on my hotdog is a chili based meat hot sauce, along with mustard and onions. Ketchup? Nope, only on a hamburger, and only if the hot sauce or a good bbq sauce like Dinosaur BBQ is not available.

                                  For me, it's mustard, spicy brown - French's need not apply.

                                  I'm surprised no one's mentioned it, especially with all this talk of "slaw dogs," but one of my all-time favorites is a good, snappy kosher beef dog slathered with spicy brown and topped with potato salad. Yum.

                                  Maybe I'm just a freak, though.

                                    Usually whatever is on the table at the picnic is what goes on my hotdog. Ketchup and mustard are always there... if onions, sauerkraut and relish (sweet, not dill) are there, those go on too. At a picnic where there are hotdogs, there are also hamburgers, so mayo is on the table too, but I have never put mayo on a hotdog.

                                    I like a pizza dog, like Orange Julius but I don't know if they still have them or if they are the same as it's been awhile since I've had one. Hotdog on a bun, covered with pizza/marinara sauce, mozzarella and seasoning. Yum.

                                      A hot dog vendor for the Detroit Tigers was recently disciplined (I believe temporarily) for singing on the job. Turns out, though, that some people were having other problems with him. Specifically, if someone asked for ketchup on a hot dog, he would refuse. In one instance I read about, he said, "What are you, five?"

                                      Apparently, a petition went around in his favor. Some people like him, others find him rude.

                                        When I ate ketchup on hot dogs, I understood as a child; but when I became an adult, I put away childish things. Paraphrase: Bible: New Testament. 1 Corinthians 13:11.

                                        And that is why you don't use ketchup on hot dogs. Because it is against Biblical teachings. (please do not flame me)

                                          It should have read "put ME on a bridge"...

                                          I was quoting Lou Costello from the same bit I cut and pasted.

                                            Try schubling or polish sausage on a big bun, with sauerkraut, pickles and some very hot french (not French's, mind you) mustard. You'll either die, or thank me for the rest of your life!!!
                                            P.S.: Ketchup on a hot dog? Only if you like guacamole in your pancakes!

                                              I used to be a mustard purist, but lately I like 'em with EVERYTHING: that's mustard, yes->ketchup, chopped onion and relish (but not regular relish--I use Mazetta's or Trader Joe's bell pepper relish).

                                              Actually, I tend to alternate these with chilidogs: a hotdog covered with beanless chili, chopped onion and a generous dash of Tabasco!

                                                Come to think of it, for Polish sausages, I'm still a purist-->mustard and chopped onion only, please.

                                                  " You don't put ketchup on a hot dog because you don't.

                                                  My daughter started ordering ketchup on her hot dogs. We put her up for adoption and was taken in by a what seemed to be a good family. I hope she is happy..."

                                                  Here in the UK, you buy sausages from the butcher because he has carefully made them from whatever ingredients he see's fit & just 20 miles away, a sausage will taste completely different.

                                                  If I had a daughter & she put anything on her sausage first time around.....she would be up for adoption - & I'd hope that she'd be (reasonabley) happy...

                                                    Only a child (or someone with childlike taste) puts ketchup on a hot dog. I honestly believe the only thing (aside from a good hot chili sauce and onions) that you need is a good yellow mustard.

                                                      I'm 34 and I still love ketchup on hotdogs. Ketchup, yellow mustard, and onions is pretty much my standard makeup. Now when it comes to the brats, i'll go for some brown mustard and onions only.

                                                        Just where do you get off calling me a child or my tastes childlike. Who do you think you are making this judgement?

                                                          I agree with Cakes. Everyone is entitled to put what they want to on their hot dogs without someone calling them a child. Name calling is what I call childish

                                                            (1)When viewing someone eating catsup on a hot dog, I'm tempted to ask if they remembered to circumcise it! (Ouch!)
                                                            Catsup goes on mediocre french fries (to give 'em some taste)!
                                                            Read somewhere that catsup was originated in the 1200's to disguise the taste of "high" meat.
