"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."
"I was leery about the brown sugar and cream cheese but decided to go for it. Glad I did, I really enjoyed this. A keeper for sure. A nice break from a plain old hotdog. I used a smoked sausage instead of hotdog. First I boiled the sausage in a little water in a fry pan when the water was boiled out I slit the sausage in halve and fried it face down in its own juices just till slightly brown."
"I enjoyed this using a veggie sausage and veggie bacon. I love the onions, not sure about the cream cheese. Nice for a change!"
"Wow!!! What a fun new way to enjoy a dog!! I always make caramelized onions to top off my steak, so figured it would liven up a hot dog as well and I was right. I made this as written, but next time I will probably leave the brown sugar out, the onions make it sweet enough. Thanks for sharing a fun recipe. Made for Stars Tag Game."
"Family gave this a 4. I think it was pretty good but I think next time I will try it with smoked sausages instead of hot dogs. I love cream cheese and sauteed onions so this was a very nice change from the plain old American dog way of serving them.."
"Having bought one of these "Bagel Dogs" from a street vendor in Seattle back in the mid '90s (and yes, it was "after hours" just as you say), I can attest that these are pretty darn authentic! I definitely remember the creme cheese and the caramelized onions being signature ingredients. Only difference was I chose the sausage dog option back then, and therefore to recreate the memory I used them now too. As a fellow Washingtonian I can give my props; this classic combo really works and tastes great. For a twist you could also add red peppers to the onion. Thanks for posting, sofie-a-toast! [Made for I Recommend Red White and Blue]"
"This all goes very well together. I got the idea of using sausages from other reviewers and that worked out well. I also skipped the sugar for caramelizing the onion. These are messy, but worth it."
"Hot dogs with the luxury of cream cheese. Never can I imagine people not indulging...or they get what they deserve. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday."
"This was a pretty good combination of flavors. I found them a little too sweet, but would just not use the sugar next time. I did really like the melty cream cheese and onions together. Will be making again!"
"I must say these are STRANGE, but GOOD!! I made as is and they had a nice sweetness from the sugared onions and the cream cheese was a nice touch. Made for PAC Spring 2011."
