A hot dog doesn’t have to be complicated to be great. I came across the idea for these Brutus hot dogs while looking at the menu for Duke’s Gourmet Dogs which was (now closed) located in Minster, Ohio. Brutus hot dogs pack sweet relish, spicy jalapenos, crunchy onions and good ole ketchup and mustard into every bite.
Oddly, neither Anita or I like sweet relish on hot dogs, but it really, really works on these dogs. The sweetness gets offset by the heat of the jalapenos and the bite of onions. Brutus dogs are actually very, very yummy and really, can you get any easier?
Slicing your hot dogs before cooking helps ensure that the toppings don’t slide off. And that’s a good thing!
Also try my Cajun hot dogs. Crazy good, crazy easy!
