The Chicago dog is as much a Windy City icon as Wrigley Field and the Sears Tower. Topped with a mountain of veggies, it’s said to be “dragged through the garden.”
While the exact toppings may vary – some recipes call for lettuce, cucumbers or even cheese sauce – one thing that Chicagoans agree on? Absolutely no ketchup. Ever.
Naturally, we didn’t try to reinvent the culinary wheel here. Our recipe calls for all the classics. Pickles, tomatoes, onions, relish, yellow mustard and a dash of magic dust: celery salt. The only difference? The addition of 100% all-beef Nathan’s beef franks, of course!
