All beef hot dog, dressed with the classic Chicago Dog toppings. Neon green relish, sport peppers, poppyseed bun, and don't forget the celery salt!


  • Poppyseed Hot Dog Buns (or regular hot dog buns)
  • All Beef Hot Dogs, like Hebrew National
  • Ripe Tomato Slices, halved
  • Dill Pickle Spears, halved lengthwise
  • Classic Yellow Mustard
  • Neon Green Sweet Pickle Relish, like Vienna (or regular sweet pickle relish)
  • Diced White Onion
  • Celery Salt
  • Sport Peppers, like Marconi (or pepperoncini peppers)



Boil the desired number of hot dogs in water for about 5 minutes, until dogs are heated through.


Let the hot dogs dry off on a paper towel, then lay a hot dog in the center of the bun and lay tomato slices along one side of the hot dog.


Lay a dill pickle spear (cut side down) along the other side of the hot dog.


Drizzle a zigzag of yellow mustard over the hot dog.
