The 25 Best Hot Dog Toppings From Classic To Chaotic

Hot dogs are the crux of many modern day arguments. Is it a sandwich? What are the best hot dog toppings? And how can gravity and the quantum exist in the same theory? Okay, maybe dogs don’t relate to that last one, but we’ll think about anything to distract us from what went into that hot dog casing.

1. Ketchup

A classic for a reason, ketchup is as good on a hot dog as it is on burgers, french fries, or used as fake blood in low-budget horror movies. Dogs may be man’s best friend, but ketchup is a (hot) dog’s best friend.

2. Chili Cheese Dogs

Amateur hour is done now. Life is too short for just one topping. Pairing hearty chili with gooey cheese is so wrong it’s right. Unlike that right turn you took back there. That was actually wrong.

3. Cowboy Candy

Cowboy candy is another great hot dog topping. Don’t know what that is? Well it’s also known as candied jalapenos, but that’s if you’re all work and no play. And we all know that makes Jack a dull boy and a hot dog a dull dish.

4. Chicago Style Hot Dog

The Chicago hot dog comes on a poppy seed bun with yellow mustard, relish, fresh chopped onions, tomato wedges, a kosher-style pickle spear, spicy peppers, and a dash of celery salt. 

5. Brazilian Hot Dog

Brazilian hot dogs are done up with all sorts of things that often include (but are not limited to): potato sticks, diced ham, tomato sauce, corn, and peppers.
