With Memorial Day (in the US) approaching we are hitting prime cookout season and that means hot dogs time. What do you duders and dudettes put on your dogs.

I'm either a simple yellow mustard and ketchup combo or chili, cheese and onion.

Just yellow mustard in a real hurry to get hot dogs in my face. Chili and cheese on an ideal dog.

Cheese, chili, then onions. Mmmmm, heartburn and farts, but worth it.

DA best Hot Dog is a Dixie Dog. Comes with chili and coleslaw and it’s heavenly!

Plain’s good.

Good old fashioned mustard and ketchup.

Pulled pork and BBQ sauce.

Baked beans and bacon.

You can toss some shredded cheese on one, though as an adult, I’d PROBABLY avoid this unless it was a little on some chili, or something similar.

I’m not big on onions or relish and I’ve never heard of mayo on a dog (it’s a trap?).

Usually just ketchup. If I'm feeling adventurous then I'll substitute coleslaw.

When we used to make em we used to like having two done up with relish, ketchup, and mustard (yellow), and have another on the side that's just plain that we could scoff down. Mayonaise on all of them, of course.

Eventually I started going for extra old cheddar, because extra old cheddar on everything is great. Except egg salad. Cheese and egg salad is decidedly not great.

All very basic though. Seen some fancy stuff here and there that make me wanna try other things. I remember at one point putting some coleslaw on a hot dog, and that was pretty fuckin awesome. I think chili might be damn good. Onions too.

How is sauerkraut not listed? Obviously that, plus mustard and onion. I prefer mustard with actual flavor (not the plain yellow stuff), but I'm not that picky.

Alternatively - a pile of chili with onion and cheese.

Anyone who puts mayo on a hot dog is a monster, and ketchup is for children.

When I'm at home, I just keep it simple with ketchup and/or mustard. If I'm at a cookout, restaurant, diner, 7-11, fast food joint, etc, I tend to go all out. Chili, cheese, onions, mustard, and ketchup and whatever else if I can fit it all. Just fuck my insides up, fam.

Usually nothing or light ketchup/mustard.

If I'm not in the mood for a generic hot dog I'll go baked beans and cheese. Especially if it's more of a bratwurst than hot dog.

Ketchup and mustard (either yellow or brown) for a quick, utilitarian dog.

Chili, cheese, and onion for a basic chili dog.

If I'm dogging properly, any (but never all) of the following may apply, plus or minus the aforementioned ketchup and/or mustard and/or onion: Sauerkraut, tomato, pickle. Anything else is a hot dog crime, and offenders should turn themselves in to the hot dog police.

Relish? That's a misdemeanor. Relish is a bad food item, but the dog can theoretically be saved if you pile so much shit on it that you can't taste any of the relish.

Mayo? Felony. 25 to life. What are you even doing at that point? You murdered the hot dog. It ain't coming back after that. That hot dog is not pining for the fjords, it is simply a dead hot dog. I am lesser for having shared a planet with a mayo-slathered frankfurter. I am a believer in live and let live when it comes to food preferences, but this is the pineapple pizza of hot dogs, and I shan't stand for it.

Never chili, it's just a mess.

Otherwise I'm down for whatever. Never heard of mayo on a hotdog but hey why not.

Aside from onions, which I decline, my typical hot-dog topping are all the top of the chart.

Ketchup, Mustard, Cheese, Chili. Not always at the same time, but those are the only accepting topping to put on a hot dog for me.

Shout-out to the mustard (yellow) and chilli dogs they make at a very local rural movie theater that are pretty much the best hotdogs I've ever had (cause the chili is exactly what I want out of them). Have bought 12 of those things (and eaten 6 during the movie, 6 during the evening) in one truly memorable binge.

I voted ketchup, yellow mustard, onions, cheese, chili and tomato. With the exception of tomato those are all the most popular choices, which makes me feel super RIGHT.

I feel like I need to defend the tomato choice though. I can't think of a place that would even offer tomato, I just thought it sounded weird and interesting and I might try it if given the option.

The answer is literally ANYTHING you like. I cannot fathom why people get precious about hot dogs of all things. Yellow, brown, spicy mustard, chilly, a pickle, a tomato, who cares?

Tomato Sauce and Cheese mainly. Some times onions If I feel like it.

@czyjoedavola: Just because it's the left over pieces of a pig stuffed into an edible casing doesn't make it gross; in fact it makes it delicious.

@sarnecki: Tomato is part of a "Chicago dog" which is pretty common in the Midwest.

@frytup: I associate sauerkraut with Polish sausage and brats but not a hit dog.

I selected all of the options.

What I've been doing lately is Sriracha and Japanese Mayo, and the occasional Chili Cheese Dog.

What kind of sick bastard puts Mayo on a Hot Dog?

@sarnecki: Tomato slices are a staple of the Chicago dog. Super common in Illinois, but if you have a Portillos near you, those are Chicago dogs. I'm also going to say that since Dick Portillos sold Portillos to a holding company that's been aggressively expanding, it's gone from consistently good to pretty crappy 80% of the time.

If you're in Denver, there's Chicago Mike's and Chicago Style Beef and Dogs.

But, you have to have the beef hot dog on a Chicago dog. It has a bite to it and a saltiness to it that goes well with the toppings. The steamed sesame seed bun also kind of seems pretty important to me.

If you do a normal Oscar Meyer hot dog, it's pretty nasty.

Also, if you're ever in the Chicago land area, check out Super Dawg. They have their own sausage that's like a beef hot dog/polish sausage hybrid.

Bright yellow mustard-ass mustard
A sinus-clearing spicy mustard (preferably with horseradish for extra oomph)
Chili, cheese, onions, gimme that Sonic the Hedgehog dog

I didn't eat breakfast this morning so looking at this topic was a huge mistake >_<

@xanadu: not if it's a high quality dog. A Polish sausage or cheddarwurst are great plain.

Spicy Mustard, Green Tomato Piccalilli, and diced fresh onions.

A natural casing dog is best to get that 'snap', and you must brush the melted butter on the side of the buns - Grill the buns both-side down until lightly browned

You gotta have a Rochester dog - I know it looks like Chili - but it's not, it's the hot sauce that goes on a garbage plate and it's incredible. Best served on a Zweigle's White Hot (better than a red hot) and also topped with onions and mustard.

Oh and for the record - the best way to cook a hot dog is to slice it most of the way down the center, open it like butterfly wings and lay it flat on the grill. More room for that nice sear/grill marks

@frytup: I’ll put ketchup on burgers and dogs, but that’s about it. It’s bland, but plays nicely with other condiments.

Ah, it's okay, I still love you. Even as I was typing that I was thinking "But hot dogs ARE important!"

I just tend to like just about everything on them.

Ketchup, maybe some relish if I want something a little different. I can appreciate a good chili-cheese dog too if the chili doesn't have beans.

But the real shit is a Jimmy Buff Italian hot dog sandwich with or without Italian sausage and onions, peppers, and fried potatoes. That's some real-deal New Jersey shit right there.
