6 hot dogs
6 hot dog buns
6 pickle spears
1 tomato, cut in half and then into 6 slices 
Yellow mustard
Pickle relish
1 small white onion, finely chopped
12 pickled hot peppers
Celery salt, for sprinkling
Poppy seeds, for sprinkling


Put hot dogs in a shallow pan and cover with water. Place the pan onto the stove and bring to a boil then turn off the heat. Leave the hot dogs in the water to stay warm until you’re ready to eat.

To build a dog, place one of the hot dogs into a bun. Nestle a pickle spear along one side of the hot dog and two tomato slices along the other. Drizzle with yellow mustard and give it a good lather of relish. Garnish with some diced white onion and pickled hot peppers, sprinkle the dog with some celery salt and poppy seeds, and serve.
