Cooking Hot Dog Variations Around The World
A hot dog is typically a commercial food consisting of either a baked or steamed Frankfurter with the slice of a partially sliced apple topped with onions and spices of your choice. Sometimes it can also refer to both the sausage itself and the apples used to top it. The most common name for these sausages is called Frankfurter and they are made in this way. The word "hot dog" also has another form that can be used interchangeably with hot dog.
One may think that a hot dog would be made from the same sort of ingredients and could even taste the same, but the truth is that they are actually very different. There are two kinds of sausages that are produced in the United States, New York Style and Pennsylvania Dutch. New York Style sausages are traditionally made in the state of New York, while Pennsylvania Dutch sausages are made in the state of Pennsylvania. Many people confuse these two sausages as being the same, but the key difference is that New York Style uses a mixture of ground beef, turkey, and pork to Pennsylvania Dutch use only pork and bacon.
Another example of confusion over what the term actually means is when someone asks for a New Jersey Hot Dog, they are referring to the actual dish and not to the more generic term. Some examples are when grocery stores say they sell hot dogs instead of frankfurters, and at certain restaurants, you will find the word hot dog used with the term hot dog. It is also used when ordering take out meals and is used when ordering in a hotel. The only place that you will rarely see the term used is at a seafood restaurant.
The origin of the term hot dog can be traced all the way back to the early 1900s in Germany. The German called the meat schnitzel and the Americans called it hot dogs. The Germans also used words such as chat and scatter which meant meal and sausage respectively. In English, the term hot dog did not take off until the 1950s. People were starting to refer to them as hot dogs in the United States prior to that.
There are many different cuts of meat that can be used to create hot dogs. One of the most popular cuts is the American style Frankfurter, which is a pork hickory smoked sausage that is served on a half moon of bread. Other cut options are Chicago, New York, and Pennsylvania Sausage. Chicago Style is most popular and served on a white bread half moon. New York Style hot dogs are served on a half moon and is wrapped in red bell peppers and onions.
Hot dogs can come in various different colors. In the north America, people commonly see hot dogs covered in a bright red or yellow sheet. In Germany they see red, green, and orange that are known as schnitzel rosten. Different countries and cultures have different words for colors and you will find red, green, and orange as popular colors. These colors are created using various natural casings such as beef drippings, fish and liver products, and even turkey drippings.
As you can see there are many different options when cooking and making hot dogs. When buying a recipe, look to see if the ingredients are real ingredients that are used to feed dogs or if they are processed meat. Processed meat has been stripped of many of its nutrients and has been subject to rampant antibiotic use in modern times that have led to a rise in cases of colorectal cancer and other diseases.
You can also purchase hot dog buns in different styles from your local deli or market. Look to see how the buns are decorated. In the North America you will likely see hot dog variations such as pups in bunches, pigs in blankets, buntings, and sizzling dogs. New York is famous for the buntings they do with the dogs and it is an international phenomenon.
