A Seattle-style hot dog is a late-night staple at game day food carts across Seattle. But you don’t have to travel to Washington to sample these delicious dogs.
Seattle dogs are essentially a delicious mash-up of hot dog and bagel. The origins are often disputed, but may have something to do with a bagel cart that started selling hot dogs, too. The dogs are split open and seared and then served with cream cheese and sautéed onions or scallions.
Polish sausage is often used instead of regular old dogs. Other toppings like jalapeños, sauerkraut, and cabbage can be included and condiments like mustard, Sriracha, and barbecue sauce give the dish a little tang and zip. Ketchup is typically a no-no, but we won't tell if you decide to add a drizzle.
Seattle dogs are super easy to throw together at home and can be made for large crowds or for a weeknight dinner. They're obviously perfect for a Super Bowl celebration. Whether you're tailgating or watching from the comfort of your living room, you can enjoy these with ease.
4 hot dogs, or sausages
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 medium onions, peeled and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4 hot dog buns
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 jalapeño, thinly sliced
Sriracha sauce, for garnish
Brown mustard, for garnish
Steps to Make It
Gather the ingredients.
Split each hot dog or sausage lengthwise while keeping 2 halves together.
Heat a sauté or grill pan on high heat. Add oil, onions, and salt and sauté or grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until slightly softened and browned. Make sure to do this on high heat to get good golden color and flavor.
Remove onions from pan and add hot dogs or sausages. Sear for about 2 minutes per side or until heated through and lightly browned or charred. Cover to keep warm while toasting buns.
Remove hot dogs or sausages from pan and add buns. Toast split-side down. Toast until just lightly browned.
Add hot dogs or sausages to buns and add grilled onions to the side. Add softened cream cheese to a plastic or piping bag. Cut bottom off of bag and squeeze cream cheese over top. Then top with fresh jalapeno slices, Sriracha, and mustard. You can also add sauerkraut, if using.
- Use whatever sausage or hot dog you like. They all taste delicious with these toppings.
- Use a combination of any of the topping options or set up a hot dog topping bar and let your guests top the dogs themselves.
