American Hot Dogs (2)


Hot dogs began to be sold everywhere, including baseball parks, and that tradition was also born.

There's a lot of regional variations in the American hot dog.  For example, the "classic"style hot dog served with yellow mustard and relish (a kind of Tsukemono) is loved everywhere, but in NYC they might also add sauerkraut.

Chicago-style dogs are made with sliced pieces of dill pickle, sweet peppers and tomatoes.

The "chili dog" started in the southwest of America, but became a national favorite.  It is topped with mexican chili con carne and sometimes cheese.

People from the south enjoy hot dogs with cole slaw on them.

There are endless variations in the US, and hot dogs made with alternate meats such as chicken , turky, or even tofu have become somewhat popular due to their lower fat content...

Sometimes people from Japan have won hot dog eating contests in America, eating as many as 68 hot dogs !                           (G.K)
