Hot dog lover? These are the best hot dog toppings in a row

Must Try

Agood hot dog should not be missing in your cooking repertoire. We don’t mean a limp sausage in a ditto bun, but a well- fried or grilled sausage in a crispy fresh bun filled with the best toppings out there. Culy lists the tastiest toppings that you should ever put on your hot dog. Separately or all at once, whichever you prefer.

The best hot dog toppings in a row

1. Smashed avocado or refried beans

Actually, this is a kind of mega simple variant of guacamole. Mash the avocado (there may still be pieces in it) and season with salt and pepper. Spread this on the bun before adding the sausage. Also super tasty on a toasted bun.

Refried beans can be bought ready-made in the store, but they are made as quickly as you cut your sandwich open.

Fry the contents of the can of black or brown beans (including the liquid) in a layer of butter or oil. Then mash the beans with a masher (directly in the pan) to a soft texture with a little bit here and there. Or grind them completely smooth in a food processor or with a stick blender.

Flavoring is possible – but not necessarily – with cumin, dried chili and cayenne pepper. Tadaaa:  it’s that simple!

2. Caramelized onions or crispy onions

Onions that you fry slowly and gently will caramelize. That doesn’t mean they’ll turn into caramel, but they’ll get a slightly sweetish and smooth taste, you’ll want to toss them on just about anything. Cut the onions into rings and fry together with a chopped garlic clove in the butter for at least 8-10 minutes, longer is also possible. Draining with a dash of balsamic or red wine at the end is nice, but not necessary.

Fried onions, those crispy ones, give every dish a nice crunch, including your hot dog. These should really not be missed. Ready-made, fine for sale, but so much fun to make yourself !

3. Hot hot hot dog

For the enthusiasts among us, a little spice with a hot dog is indispensable. You can do that in 1001 ways. A really good idea are these chipotle hot dogs from the barbecue or this green chili cheese sauce with chilis from Taste and tell. Doubly delicious.

But these hot dogs are a must try once in your life: hot dog with cheddar IN a jalapeno pepper . And oh yes with bacon. Watch and get hungry.

4. Something pickled

Every hot dog sandwich deserves a pickle and that doesn’t always have to be a pickle. But that is certainly possible. Consider nopales , pickled jalapenos, or seared pickled onions. But this pickled pepper slaw from Foodandwine or the pickled cherry tomatoes from The Kitchn can please our pickle love.

Don’t forget the well-known pickled cucumber , atjar or sushi ginger when you make a hot dog Asian style.

5. Something with cabbage (must)

A hot dog and cabbage are somehow inextricably linked. The German variant always comes with sauerkraut, but this spicy sauerkraut from the wok is also a really great combination. American hot dogs are often served with coleslaw.

But highly recommended are the fermented vegetables that are on the rise. For example, take a look at the fermented krauts from Sauercrowd or kimchi, beautiful colors, even better taste. And don’t they love a sandwich?

6. Bacon, bacon and more bacon

Fried bacon, crispy bacon or fried pastrami, this crunchy savory snack is the lid on the pot of a hot dog. Real meatlovers swear that bacon goes with a hot dog. At sometime? Don’t forget to put this on your shopping list, there are even options to wrap a hot dog with bacon. And you want to try.

7. Rhubarb ketchup, fig mustard, or ras el hanout mayonnaise (the sauce)

The sauce is the beginning and the end of the hot dog, it has to be on top and under it. Tip: preferably choose 1 type of sauce, then the overview in flavors makes it a bit clear.

This Culy editor clearly has her favorites, which are truffle mayonnaise, homemade barbecue sauce or piccalilli. But when you delve into it, a world of sauces opens up to you. Harissa yogurt, green curry dip, rhubarb ketchup or fig mustard, but also teriyaki sauce, hoisin dressing or ras el hanout mayo. Just reading these extensive options will make you happy.

8. A fresh (pineapple-tomato) salsa

Salsas are chopped vegetables and fruits, often flavored with a little lime, garlic, onion, and an herb like coriander. They’re actually one of your few chances to slip some vitamin onto your hot dog sandwich. In addition, they also give a wonderful freshness, which, in addition to all the greasy, brings a perfect balance.

A genius like this pineapple tomato salsa from Leelicious wouldn’t look out of place on a hot dog with cajun mayo, nopales, fried onions and jalapenos. Just to come up with a variant.

9. Cheddar cheese as a hot dog topping

Finally, we should certainly not forget the cheese, which is a tasty topping on a hot dog. The best if it is topped on the hot dog while it is still warm and it can melt nicely. Cheddar is extremely suitable for this.
