NFL Recipes                                                       


This week we had a hot dog competition, check out the video to see how it went, and see the recipes below.



Chicago Dog

Ingredients
         2 bratwurst (or sausage of choice
         2 whole-wheat hot dog buns
         2 T onion
         1 tomato
         sport peppers (or pepperoncinis)
         celery salt
         yellow mustard
         sweet green pickle relish
         dill pickles
         water

Directions
            Set a saucepan to medium heat. When hot, place sausages into the pan. Allow to cook evenly on each side; they will begin to look brown when ready to flip. When all sides are well browned, add a dash of water to the pan. This will help steam them as well as prevent from burning.
            Turn oven on to 350. Place hot dog buns in until well toasted. Meanwhile, chop up the onion, and cut the tomato in wedges. Also cut the pickles into slices or wedges (traditional).
Now it is time to prepare the dog. Put bun on a plate, and put the sausages on top. Now to keep things traditional, pile on the toppings in this order: yellow mustard, sweet green pickle relish, onion, tomato wedges, pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt. Make sure to place the tomatoes on the side of the sausage. The tomatoes should be nestled between the hot dog and the top of the bun. Go Bears!
