Keep in mind that there is a myth that since hot dogs are pre-cooked you can eat them raw. The fact is a hot dog must be cooked to an internal temperature of 160º. It’s a common misconception that hot dogs can be eaten right out of the package like lunch meat. According to the FDA, packaged hot dogs can be contaminated with Listeria , which can be killed by reheating the hot dogs. To keep my family safe I use a digital thermometer , the ChefsTemp Finaltouch X10 to make sure they are fully reheated to the suggested temperature. Cooking is something that my family does together and enjoying these moments is what I cherish.
Everyone knows the Chicago Dog . You’ve probably heard of the Tucson’s Sonora Dog, but haven’t been to Seattle you have probably never heard of the Seattle Dog. One bite was all it took and I was hooked. The standard is a hot dog or polish sausage with cream cheese. What else is on it depends where you get it. Marshawn Lynch and his Beast Mode was the inspiration for this Beast of Seattle Dog. Don’t settle for the minimum when you can got Beast Mode and have it all.
The Beast Mode Seattle Dog is an all beef hot dog, grilled, wrapped in bacon, fried and then topped with caramelized onions, cream cheese, sauerkraut , mustard and pickled jalapeños.
