Indiana Hoosier Hot Dog

A few years ago the Big 10 basketball tournament was held here in Indianapolis. 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. The Indiana Hooiser dog was one of our favorites of all the dogs. We were both pleasantly surprised at how well slaw and relish go together. And the crunchy fried onions sealed the deal. These are fantastic dogs, ones we’ll make again and again.

Indiana Hoosier Hot DogI can’t say I’ve had much red pepper relish in my life. Well, ok, probably never. I think it’s fantastic stuff. It’ll become a staple around here for hot dogs and wraps.
