Lips and assholes. You would think that they would fit right in with the rest of the british food. Bangers and blood sausages and random organs ground up into a pie.
 
2014-01-27 09:32:36 AM
Nobody. I mean Nobody puts ketchup on a hotdog.
 
2014-01-27 09:33:05 AM
The British have had sausages on buns for ages. Hotdogs for at least 100 years. WTF.
 
2014-01-27 09:34:34 AM
Just ketchup.
 
2014-01-27 09:34:44 AM
as long as you put ketchup on it, it will be delicious.

Hot dogs are disgusting.


I prefer my chihuahua's chilled before I eat them.

I do. Onions too.

vudukungfu: Nobody. I mean Nobody puts ketchup on a hotdog.


I do. Oddly, it's the only time I ever use ketchup. A little bit of ketchup, a few bacon bits, and some shredded cheddar.....mmmmmm.

But which toppings and condiments do and don't work? You can put anything on a dog, but should you?

Yes: butter-braised or, at a push, boiled/ steamed onions; bacon; mild mustard; dried, fried flakes that adhere well (chicken skin, onion flakes, bacon bits); ketchup; gherkins; cheese; sauerkraut (shredded items conveniently mould themselves around the sausage, see also coleslaw); pickled cucumber; tomato relishes; a bit of beef for contrast (eg. not overly hot chilli, chopped pastrami etc); macaroni cheese. NB: combine no more than three.


Just 'cause we kicked your asses out don't mean you have to revert to a state of nature.

When I first moved to England I tried to find hot dogs.  The only option I could find were in a can or jar, like this :http://janeteats.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/img_3390.jpg

I was too scared to try them for about a year.  When I finally got the nerve I was pleasantly surprised.  It was no Nathan's, but it got the job done

I see everything has already been covered. Came to say lips and assholes and how the Brits should love it.
 
2014-01-27 09:37:15 AM
I never understood why anyone would have a hot dog when they could have a sausage-innabun.
 
2014-01-27 09:37:45 AM
brown mustard and that wickles pickles relish please...

*gratuitous shoutout to Tony Packo's*
 
2014-01-27 09:38:41 AM
Mustard, please. Ketchup is only acceptable for bad fries (malt vinegar for real fries) or if you're under 14.

A hot dog is a sausage in a bun. Just a different kind of sausage.
 
2014-01-27 09:40:57 AM
Onions, chili, cheddar cheese and hot sauce.

Depending on my mood, ketchup is fine and dandy. The best way I've found is yellow mustard, pepperocinis, onions and horse radish.

Heat dog, place in bun, add toppings and garnish, enjoy!

/We really put too much thought into this.
//slice up and add to mac&cheese
///third slashie for no particular reason

If you're looking for a real treat, try a sonoran hot dog. Bacon wrapped dog with chili beans, cheese, onions, guacamole, mustard and mayo.

Article fails without picture of how to eat a hot dog.

Heinz ketchup, French's yellow mustard, store brand sweet relish.
Nathans or Hebrew National.

About 30 seconds in the old microwave to get 'em hot.
 
2014-01-27 09:46:17 AM
I'm honestly shocked to see all the ketchup hating.

But then again I'm in an area where each restaurant serves their own house-made artisanal ketchup recipes.

I've even seen a ketchup "sampler" come out with an order of house-mad artisanal fries...

Well, that's more "How to please your gay lover" than properly eating a hot dog.

The correct hot dog.
 
2014-01-27 09:47:42 AM
All-beef hotdogs are dry and too meaty?

Best's natural casing kosher frankfurters are one of the greatest foods known to man.

There is no correct hot dog.

Can someone give me an actual reason why you shouldn't put ketchup on a hot dog? It's a hot dog, not a steak. Who cares?

I am all about the spicy mustard and onions on my hot dogs. Used to love ketchup as a kid now it's only occasionally that I can eat it. I used to hate mustard but now that is amazing!

Being that it's "English", I'm not sure you want to know.
 
2014-01-27 09:49:50 AM
Nathans or hebrew national boiled in dirty water slathered in mustard and onions.  That is the only way
 
2014-01-27 09:49:57 AM
No: fried onions (bitter, stringy, a Zantac attack!); squeezy cheese... , BBQ sauce (the devil's goo)

Thems fightin' words, England.

Why the ketchup hate?  Ketchup is delicious.

Mustard, ketchup, onions, and cheese.  Pickles on the side.

Mustard and raw onions are the acceptable hot dog toppings for me.

If I ate that, I wouldn't shiat for a week, and it would be worth it.

Mentalpatient87: Can someone give me an actual reason why you shouldn't put ketchup on a hot dog? It's a hot dog, not a steak. Who cares?


Because ketchup on a hotdog is disgusting and only acceptable while it is still being cut into tiny choking pieces by your mommy or daddy.

With enough fried onions and mustard, people will eat anything.

Ha, I'm the opposite.  The Reds hall of fame shiatter will never be the same.

Chili.

A good meaty chili. Sometimes I'll take a canned chili and throw in another quarter pound of ground venison.
 
2014-01-27 09:54:15 AM
Hey Brits! You eat hot dogs from the side, like corn-on-the-cob. Otherwise, you look like this:
