strange toppings Sat, 01/31/09 8:24 AM (permalink)

What is the strangest thing you have seen on a dog? I am opening my first hot dog stand here in Georgia and am contimplating the "white trash dog", its collard greens on top of a sausage dog, maybe a little pepper vinegar or some tobasco. Its common down here to put ham hocks or some sort of meat in collards to season the greens so I figure why not. Hope the name doesn't offend anyone.

      How about chili with beans and a sprinkle of fresh chopped onion, and the option of grated cheese on the top?

      I used to get a hot dog, grilled, with a wedge of American cheese inserted in a lengthwise slit cut in the dog and a strip of cooked, limp bacon wrapped around the dog from one end to the other. This was in a little place in what used to be our main business district "in town". Really good dog!

          Dogs... good luck with your stand! Just cook some bacon, w/ tha grease, in w/ those collards and it sounds good to me. The pepper vinegar also sounds good. I like that stuff on my greens. Your location sounds perfect for this kinda dog.

          We had better talk about some more places that have strange  toppings. How bout the Hawaiian Puka Dog, w/ tropical fruit. Hey, sounds good to me! :~)

          But... beans in hot dog chili???

            You're right, PapaJoe8.   Load my hot dog up with a meaty chili sauce - no beans about it.

              The strangest things I've ever seen on hot dogs are catsup, cole slaw and beans, not altogether, thank God. Each is bad enough singly. Oh, and never to be forgotten pickles, peppers and tomatoes -- also pretty strange.

                  Michael... you forgot the celery salt! :~0  And you reminded me;

                  Dog, a good seller to some folks (who are health conchos, or who worry about whats in a regular hot dog) might be what I call "The Roadfooders Nightmare";

                  A JennyO turkey dog, on a whole wheat bun, w/ ketchup down one side, and mayo down the other. And... you can make it "Texas Style". Just walk some nacho sliced pickled jalapenos down the middle. Hey, don't knock it till you've  tried one. :~)

                      Put that dog w/ maple syrup on a waffle and I'm in! Hey, they even eat fried chicken that way.
                      Joe

                      Oh, no beans on my dog though. That's just wrong!

                        The beans may be wrong, but the chili I make has them.Thusly day 2 of the recipe goes on hot dogs, along with cheese and fresh chopped onions.No complaints from the hungry crowd!

                          I hope you put some on spaghetti and top it with sharp cheddar, grated fine.

                            Remember.....the OP asked for "strange" toppings? I don't put beans in my hot dog chili, but she could offer that as a "different" topping - "the beanie weenie dog."

                              You say you're in a "Hot Dog Stand" so I'm assuming that's a permanent building as opposed to a cart???
                              The type of facility you have goes a long way in what you're able to offer. If it's a building, will you have sit down or just take out. I have ideas for you but they depend on your answers to these questions

                                While we like our chili w/beans, we also like sauerkraut and mustard on a good dog. Your version with the collards sounds great. I have also had a hot dog with ketchup, mustard and cole slaw.Not bad , but not the best.Do what is best in your region. That is key.....

                                        18. The Elvis - Peanut Butter & Banana
                                        19. The NY Deli - Chopped Chicken Liver & thin sliced onion
                                        20. And Last but not least, The GA Bulldog - Plain, They've already been topped!

                                        This resembles in many ways a list of things some seemingly normal folks put on their pizzas.



                                        Remember when it comes to simple food less is more.

                                            I called it "French" because that same blend is added to Crepes in Paris!

                                                I guess there's no real New Englanders left here.  Saturday night Supper was always Franks and beans. Of course, the dogs weren't in a roll and it was all  served with pan-grilled brown bread.  But if your'e at a country fair on a Saturday, a dog on a roll with baked beans is a fair substitute while you watch the oxen pulls.

                                                  Lee, that French Dog sonds grat!

                                                  Ash... Ok, if I was in New England, baked beans on my dog would be something I'd try. :~)

                                                  Tex Mex Nacho Dog = Just melted cheddar and pickled nacho sliced jalapenos. You could top that w/ guacamole and or sour cream I guess. We do put that stuff on our nachos. We also put refried beans??? but I don't think you need those.

                                                    What is the strangest thing you have seen on a dog? I am opening my first hot dog stand here in Georgia and am contimplating the "white trash dog", its collard greens on top of a sausage dog, maybe a little pepper vinegar or some tobasco. Its common down here to put ham hocks or some sort of meat in collards to season the greens so I figure why not. Hope the name doesn't offend anyone.

                                                     
                                                    You say you're in a "Hot Dog Stand" so I'm assuming that's a permanent building as opposed to a cart???
                                                    The type of facility you have goes a long way in what you're able to offer. If it's a building, will you have sit down or just take out. I have ideas for you but they depend on your answers to these questions


                                                    Sorry, just realized I missed this post. It is going to be a takeout/pickup place for now. Later on I have the option to lease the dining area.

                                                        the white trash dog sounds pretty good to me.. I've also seen collard kraut around the south carolina area I'm sure you have in your area as well, it's pretty good,, might make a interesting condiment as well.
                                                         Send me your location, I travel a lot and wouldn't mind trying some hotdogs.

                                                            Neat lists yall!

                                                            I forgot one. Make up Velveeta Rotel dip. Now chill it in the fridge. Next... spread some on a hot... hot dog. You could also do it w/ hot dip but the cold gets thick and melts a bit on the hot... hot dog.

                                                            Kids like these dogs and so do I. It works best on a skinless all beef dog I think. Decker is my fav brand of all beef skinless dogs.

                                                            Oh, Decker dogs are a page in hot dog history. They are no more that I can find.
