"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."
Serving Size: 1 (191 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 2
"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]"
"Yum! What a great combo. I never would have thought of it - it's neat to see how different regions come up with different ways to dress up hot dogs! Thanks for sharing. Culinary Quest '14"
"This was delicious! I would have never thought to put cream cheese on a hot dog bun :) I heated it in the microwave for 30 seconds which was perfect to make it warm and soft, without dirtying another pot. For the culinary quest :)"
"Made for the Culinary Quest 2014 - I have rarely met a hot dog I did not like & this version ranks easily in my top 3 (high praise from one who loves their dogs & lives in a city where the most popular restaurant is a hot dog stand!). 1 of their most popular versions uses sweet mustard w/crispy friend onions, so this was not far from a fave before my 1st bite. Siggi & I have been eating so much rich food lately w/houseguests & the Quest. All we really wanted for dinner last nite was comfort food & we got it w/your recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us. :-)"
"i already had the onions from twiss omelet so i thought what the heck , this is a nice way to eat a hotdog cakepops on parade hope you are having fun cakepops on parade pnw leg our quest"
"Loved the onions on these. Simple and good. Thanks for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2014."
"Every once and a while, I crave a good ol' hot dog. These offered a nice twist! I really loved the caramelized onions. I have never tried cream cheese on a hot dog before. I'm not sure I'd repeat that part again, but it was fun for a change! Made for Culinary Quest PNW - International Agents of Quest"
"Very good! Creamy cheese, sweet onions, salty dogs. Perfect! Made for CQ 2014"
"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."
