Tasty Dogs


I have a bunch of those Franks Kraut packets. If I kept a couple in my steam pan, would that work? And is it cheesy to charge extra for kraut? I'd rather say I don't carry it than add that much cost to a dog. Am adding two 1/6 pans for nacho cheese and chili, so don't have room for bulk kraut. Also, What is the best cheese and chili to buy at Sam's or Costco? I'm a little off the slaw question, but this is close.

Sam's brand Aged Cheddar Cheese Sauce is a good product.  Sam's offers a hot dog sauce in a bag but it is usually only available through their catalog.

        this is a "Detroit coney Island dog" Give me Cheap any day of the week, I'll take it, extra onions please...............I hired a Chef friday and the first thing I told him was, our menu is designed to meet the needs and wants of our customers. I design a menu and then retool it to fit the requests and needs of my customers, the menu is never what I want.
      The thing I like about offering Chili is, it opens the menu to a few different items, in your case you could offer a, Chilidog, Chili Cheese dog, Chili slaw dog.............Billyb

     
    I have never known Detroit to ever use a cheap dog. Always top quality either a Koegel or Dearborn Sausage. Natural casing is the norm....Russ
     
    By the way if anyone serves a Hot Dog like the one pictured they will succeed.

      The way we do our slaw is to finely chop cabbage in a blender, squeeze out the water then add a little mayo for creamy wetness and salt and pepper to taste. We go through abput 6 cabbages a week. We do have alot of people that will add chili under the slaw but we don't use any kind of sauce underneath, but I will fix it anyway the customer wants it.

        I believe they are calling chili, sauce.
        Me, I would be different, nothing but ketchup. Only thing you could get with your dog.
         
        But it is after the holidays and things will return to normal. Sightings of Michael Jackson working at a 7-11 in North Dakota and
        people seeing Elvis and Roy Orbison riding in a Limo.
        Pass the relish.

            IMHO, put a spicy/tangy slaw on a plain dog, put a mild slaw on a spicy/hot chilidog........I don't think a mayo based plain tasting slaw, will do anything for a plain dog..............BillyB

                In much of the South, and certainly Tennessee, there are chili dogs, slaw dogs, and chili slaw dogs.  I love all three.  The perfect slaw, in my view, is that which is served at The Varsity; very similar to KFC slaw, only a little less sweet (thankfully).  Hopefully, there are no beans in hot dog chili.

                  The first slaw dog I never had was in Franklin NC and I was 5 years old.  My Dad ordered a "Plain hot dog" for me.  What I got was a plain hot dog... with chili and coleslaw on it. The no mayo, vinegar based variety... that's not coleslaw to me now and it certainly wasn't when I was 5... which I had no intention of eating.  After 15 minutes of "that's a plain hot dog", "No it's not", my Dad told the idiot that if he couldn't put a hot dog on a bun with nothing else and give it to me, my Dad would "help" him.  Did I mention I was my father's favourite?

                  You know, that might be part of the reason David & I are so particular about customers getting their food the way they want it, especially kids.  I never got any sandwich prepared the way I wanted it (hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ) but always the way the restaurant gave it to me.  I hated eating in restaurants for many years.  When David met me and we were dating, he ran into my problem with restaurants and food "my way".  He got real tired of going back to BK (and lots of other burger joints) because I ordered a "cheese burger with only ketchup on it".  Somehow they could never get it right in less than 3 tries (sometimes the 4th try was right but it usually was the 5th or 6th).

                  Now I just get really bitchy about it (after being nice on the first mistake). And if it's too big of a deal... we just never go back to that restaurant. I understand making a mistake once but to repeatedly have to remake the same meal shows a lack of professionalism on the part of the restaurant and it's staff.  If they are that pitiful in filling an order, where else are they slacking?

                        Coleslaw made with Blue Cheese Dressing instead of Mayo.
