  • 2 tomatoes (sliced)
  • 16 pepperoncini peppers
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL onion (chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Cut tomatoes into thin slices, then cut in half to make half circles.

  2. Grill hot dogs over a medium-high heat until browned, about 4 to 5 minutes, turning occasionally.

  3. Open hot dog buns and grill for 1 minute, cut side down.

  4. Assemble dogs by placing 2 slices of tomato on the bun, then the hot dog, and then the peppers. Now top with mustard, onions and relish. Sprinkle on some celery salt and you have a real Chicago hot dog.
