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.
- Heat the butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sugar, cook for 20 minutes or until onions are caramelized, stirring regularly. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- As the onions are caramelizing, heat the cream cheese in a pot until soft and warm but not melted/cooked.
- Cook the hot dogs according to the package directions and toast the buns.
- Spread cream cheese on each warm bun. Top with a hot dog and onions.
