When I go to The Roast Grill in Raleigh, I get two hot dogs (burnt, thank you) with chili and mustard. That's the only hot dog preparation I have any desire to eat.
Here are five hot-dog-based dishes that I don't have any desire to eat.
They are from that era of gross-looking recipes, which ran primarly from the 1950s through the 1970s. Lots of meat-and-gelatin molds. If you want to see some more examples of that culinary era, along with brilliant commentary, click here for The Gallery of Regrettable Food. It's from one of my favorite Interwebbers, James Lileks, at whose site I have spent countless hours in wheezy laughter. Poke around in there for serious laughs.
