Minnesota Gopher Hot Dog

Indianapolis recently hosted the Big 10 basketball tournament. As part of the event, the Levy restaurant group in Chicago produced unique hot dogs that highlight each of the Big 10 teams. I came across a copy of the list of the dogs recently, and just had to make each of them. These Minnesota Gopher hot dogs were fantastic. Spicy chili, crunchy onions, even crunchier Fritos, and ooey gooey cheese sauce. Nice and messy, like a great dog is supposed to be!
