The Big 10 basketball tournament was here in Indianapolis a few years ago. 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. Smoky black bean salsa, melted cheddar, and mustard top the Purdue Boilermaker hot dog. The mustard and salsa were great. So was the salsa.
The Purdue Boilermaker hot dog was a big hit. And very easy to make. A real crowd-pleaser!
Slicing your hot dogs before cooking helps ensure that the toppings don’t slide off. And that’s a good thing!
