Seattle Dogs

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by sofie-a-toast

I'm from Seattle and everynight when all the bars are closing, party-goers flock to the multitude of hot dog stands lining the streets (affectionally called "street meat"). The most popular option is the tried and true Seattle Dog. It sounds like a wierd combination but it is oh so delicious! Some places also add sauteed cabbage if you want to give that a try.

These are really good!!! I thought it would be too much onion. However as it cooked down it was just fine. I was tempted to not cook them for the full 20 minutes... I did and I think that was worth it. I was glad to learn that these are authentic.
