Ketchup on a dog, why not?


When I lived at home, I used to make this. A hot dog in a cheap bun with ketchup and sweet pickel relish, put in the microwave for about a minute, eat. Damn, it was good!

On a hot dog, I like sweet relish, onion, chili, and KETCHUP on a hot dog, but not in that grouping. For example, I want chili and onion OR ketchup,sweet relish on a dog. No mixing.

I DO NOT like yellow mustard. That famous French's Yellow. It would never be used. Even on Corn Dogs, I put a slight glaze of ketchup on them (from a fast food packet). Yellow mustard, God no!

Am I a freak?

    Senor:
    You might be a freak but not because of using ketchup on a hot dog. Once every ten to fifteen years I have ketchup on a dog. Usually this happens when I see a young un, eating it this way and really having a fine old time. Its o.k. once in a while.

    I only like ketchup if I don't have chili - yellow mustard is a must!

    Nothing freakish about ketchup or any of your toppings combos but I think you crossed the line by microwaving a hot dog.

    microwaving a hot dog is pretty bad, but works well in a pinch.

    I used to love ketchup on a hotdog as well growing up. But now i just love spicy mustard, kraut, and relish...

    better yet if the relish is the spicy mustard one, and not the sweet. takes less time!

    While I would never consider anyone who puts that red stuff on a hot dog a freak, I do feel I must point out that there is a a rather serious condition I've been reading about that should concern people who put ketchup on the Holy Frankfurter. It is known as Mustard Phobia, and shrinks the world over are warning that one of the sure signs of this mental malady is the use of ketchup on hot dogs.

    Ketchup on a hot dog is a violation of Chicago food laws. A "Chicago Style Hot Dog" doesn't include ketchup.

    Considering that I prefer mustard to ketchup on a burger, I think you know where I stand on this issue. The hot dog is a sausage to me, and mustard is the only recourse a condiment. But de gustibus non disputandem est ... whatever does it for ya!

    I agree with S B W - chili and onion OR ketchup and sweet relish Although mustard comes in a close third!

    Ketchup doesn't belong on a hot dog! But to each, his own.

    What I don't understand is mayo on a hotdog. Hamburger, yes. Dog, no.

    But then I'm partial to bright NEON YELLOW mustard like French's or Plochman's, the more the better. And bright, sweet, RAW onion by the truckload on a hot dog. And, malhereusement, I like them BOILED.

    There, I have broken many food commandments. Do with me what thou wilt. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

    Neener, neener.

    Barbecued with a little mustard and onion, or mustard and sweet pickle relish, or chili...but never ever, chili AND mustard together...eeeeek!!! I have never seen anyone over the age of ten eat a hotdog with ketchup...maybe it is a regression thing, like the close and personal relationship I share with poptarts.

    anyway, I think the sweetness of ketchup just doesn't go with a dawg. It hides flavor rather than adding to the it. I think if you want that tomato flavor, do like the nice people of Chicago do:
    add sliced tomato!


    Amen . I also agree with Grampy that the hot dog is a sausage and mustard is the proper accompaniment (don't know how to include 2 quotes in a reply ).

    Besides that, I almost never use ketchup. A bottle lasts for ever around my house, I seldom use it on fries when eating out, and only occasionally on onion rings if I've ordered them at a place that doesn't do them well. At a hamburger joint, tho, a jar of Heinz sitting on the table is a temptation I am seldom strong enough to resist for at least a few fries. That has to do in part with the challenge of getting some out of the bottle.

    Standard toppings for the dog I most often have (James Coney Island) is mustard, chili, melted cheese (le fromage de Velveeta or el queso del Whiz, I surmise ) and tons of chopped onions.

    But I do love a good Chicago style dog.

    I am also one of those that Ketchup on a dog is a must. Now it does make a differance as to the quality of the dog as to how much is put on it. And lets not forget the sweet relish .

    I used to use ketchup too, but decided it didn't really work with everything else. These days what I have on it depends on where I get it. Costco's Polish sausage goes good with Gulden's Spicy Mustard, lots of onions and relish. At Pink's I usually get it with their onion "sauce". Baseball games-----gotta put everything on it! I'll even put ketchup on it at ball games-----I guess after a few beers even the ketchup looks good!

    nothing wrong with ketchup,although I ashew such a condiment on a good dog. problem arises because folks sometimes can't find good mustard(until now)....search 'Rayes mustard mill", a place in Maine which still stone grinds it's seeds, makes several award-winning types and ships anywhere. Now then, microwave a dog? John Fox will come to your house and remove the damned thing, dog and all,if he hears anymore such banter. Give me a boiled or grilled puppy with mustard,hot relish and kraut, toss me a Newcastle brown ale and let the games begin.

    For me, ketchup doesn't belong on a dog. However, I have two family members that disagree. So, dress your dog the way you like it. You're the one you're trying to please.

    How I dress my dog depends on what I want to taste. If I want to taste the dog, mustard only please. Otherwise I'll drag it through the garden to some extent. You know what I'd like to try is Onion Sauce and Mayo that I've read about at Flo's.

    Do you know that in Chicago if someone asks for ketchup, they are subject to all kinds of ridicule? Legend has it that ketchup angers the hot dog gods. They overlook this kind of behavior in kids because they are, well, kids.

    I always try a dog with just mustard (deli style spicy brown) the first time I sample a new one. Most of the time I have it this way. Occasionally I buy Rutt's Hut unique relish or the Hot Grill's chili to put on dogs I make at home. And of course an Italian Hot Dog w/peppers and potatoes every so often. But never ketchup. Or that nasty onion and ketchup mix from Sabrett. In the northeast part of the country a lot of people use sauerkraut. People from everywhere else don't. And many have never heard of it being used on a hot dog. I don't think it goes well with a hot dog. But I like it with a very spicy horseradish mustard on a bratwurst. Everyone has their tastes and preferences, but I don't understand ketchup on a dog.

    I sometimes eat a hot dog with ketchup. It depends how I feel. Of course here in Wisconsin saurkraut is a popular topping. I like cheesedogs too.

    Condiments are one of the finest forms of expression of individuality in the world today. I love looking to see what people are putting on their dogs/burgers/whatever. For myself, dog condiments vary by my mood, but ketchup only goes on if the dog in question turns out to be a particularly tasteless specimen. (Also, I do like the combination of ketchup/mustard on corndogs or bageldogs.)

    Personal taste is personal taste, but in my craggy world, the only time I can see ketchup on a dog is when the latter is a very fast example of the four-legged variety, and traveling in the other direction from me.

    In Milford, CT was a place called "The International Hot Dog Ranch" about 20 years ago. This visionary offered anything you could dream up for his dogs, from pinapple to peanut butter. He had an endless list of toppings, with combinations that represented each nation of the world.

    Unfortunately, the world wasn't ready for him.
