Makeshift Chicago Dogs

WARNING: This hot dog is an imposter! It is NOT a true Chicago Dog. You've been warned.

I love, love, loooooooooooooove Chicago Hot Dogs. The ingredients seem so strange together, but something about them just works. Delicious. Problem is, some of the ingredients are hard to come by, especially outside of Chicago. I made what I had work. You can try it too. :)

  • Turkey Dog - It's supposed to be all beef :/
  • Tomato, sliced
  • Pickle Spear
  • Pepperocini Pepper, sliced in half- these are supposed to be the very hard to attain sport peppers
  • Onions, chopped
  • Ground celery mixed with Kosher Salt - supposed to be celery salt
  • Poppyseed Bun
  • Mustard

Just assemble the dog as shown above. One thing to note is that poppyseed buns can be hard to come by. I just sprinkled some seeds on a plate, brushed the buns with some melted butter and dipped the buns to coat. Worked alright in my opinion!

This is no true Chicago dog, but it definitely works in a pinch when the craving is too much to fight!


  1. Oh Gawsh! This looks delicious! I know what we're having with franks mac and cheese tonight, yum!

  2. Wow, YUM. I'm a vegetarian, but this truly looks beyond amazing.
