Description:
A Hot Dog Classic is a type of snack food that comprises of a sausage sandwiched within a sliced bun, and topped with various condiments. Origins of the Hot Dog Classic is unclear, though most will attribute it to German immigrants in America. Today, the Hot Dog Classic is popular in America, Germany, and many other parts of the world.


There are 2 schools of thought regarding the Hot Dog Classic. Some hold the opinion that the most important component is the quality of the sausage, while others argue that the condiments are the most important. For the former, they tend to go for artisinal / hand-made sausages that are thick and meaty, like the German Bratwurst. The latter tend to go for simple / plain sausages, but like a variety of toppings and condiments to be added.

Due to its versatility, many different sausages can be used for the Hot Dog Classic. They range from plain sausages, to meaty bratwursts, to herbed sausages, to cheese sausages, to spicy sausages. Regardless of the type of sausage, the most common meats used to make them are either chicken, pork, beef or lamb. The sausages are either grilled, pan fried, boiled or deep fried. The length of the sausages is at least 6 inches or more.

The bun used for Hot Dog Classic is almost always a roll / loaf, that is either lightly toasted or just served plain. The bun is normally either an American style hot dog bun, a French baguette, an Italian ciabatta, or a New England style roll. The bun is halved / sliced through the middle, and the sausage placed within, and condiments are loaded on top. The length of the bun is at least 6 inches or more.

A Hot Dog Classic is never served plain, and will always be topped with at least 2 or more of the following condiments; namely tomato ketchup, sweet chili sauce, mild American mustard, chopped red onions, American sweet pickled relish / gherkins, lettuce, sliced cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, mayonnaise, and / or American cheese. No other condiment beyond these listed can be added to the Hot Dog Classic.

A Hot Dog Classic is served accompanied by either French fries / English chips, mashed potato or potato chips. A cold drink is also served, normally a soft drink, iced tea or beer.
