It’s Tuesday and I’m feelin’ a little uninspired. Well, that’s not entirely true – I’ve got a few hefty posts in the works, but they’re not quite ready for primetime yet. So how about something simple? Something that takes mere minutes to put together? Something totally processed and totally un-whole-foody? You know what I’m talking about – hot dogs.
Every other Wednesday, S (my manfriend) hosts a movie night for a bunch of friends. We watched Lethal Weapon last week. After seeing Mel Gibson shove a hot dog down his gullet all crazy-like, S and I both instantly experienced cravings for the tubular [non] meat. Makes total sense, right? So, the next night, we made it happen. S insisted we try Chicago-style hot dogs – I didn’t even know they were a thing! We didn’t use poppy seed buns or sport peppers (?!?), but our dogs included:
- Smart Dogs Jumbo Links
- Dill pickle spears
- Diced red onion
- Tomato slices
- Dill relish
- Celery salt
Oh come on; you didn’t think I could post about dogs of any kind without sharing a photo of Moria, did you?!

Sport peppers taste like a mini pepperocini :) they’re more salty than spicy if that helps. I adore them on my veg dogs. My current combo at my local spot is: mustard, pickles, sport peppers, mustard, and celery salt. OM NOM NOM.
Also, sweet relish and chicago style relish (which is like bread and butter pickle relish) are NASTY!! Dill relish is the way to go. I like bubbie’s.
Isn’t it nice every now and then to eat something naughty but easy? Your dawgs look fabulous:) Wow! Kelly ate relish! Maybe Santa will put some in your stocking this year;)
Those hot dogs are epic! Love them! Drooling.
Hot dog fillings? Heck, they’re *all* good! I don’t even need the dog! In fact, the protein element gets in the way of all that drippy condimenty goodness, if you ask me. The bun, though, I guess, is a must…
Yum! I always feel like a hot dog when I see vegan ones but I can’t eat them so I have to live through photos!
And Moira is such a cutie, I bet she was wondering where her bun + hot dog was!
Everyone needs a good sodium-laden batch of comfort food every once in a while. ;-)
I love vegan junk food so hard!
