This past Sunday the celebrities on Rachael vs. Guy: Celebrity Cook-Off had to cook kid-friendly food for two kids’ birthday parties. Unfortunately, not all the dishes pleased the kids’ picky palates. Johnny and Carnie ended up in the bottom two and were given the challenge of making hot dogs for the blind tasting. The crumbled sausage sandwich that Johnny created sent him home because it wasn’t a true hot dog. But it was the hot dog that Carnie made that everyone raved about. Its toppings set it apart: bacon and cheese and a special sauce that Rachael couldn’t help eating on its own.
When it comes to kids’ party food and even game-day grub, hot dogs are right up there with burgers, mac ‘n’ cheese, chili and all those other noteworthy favorites. But it’s often the topping that can put people on the hot dog defensive, with the number-one debate being ketchup or mustard. But there are also many other options when it comes to topping a hot dog. FN Dish wants to know what toppings put on yours.
