Savory Saturday – baseball styles

Baseball overload this weekend!

My cravings include pretzels, peanuts, pizza, hot dogs and licorice. Typical things I eat at the Skydome (ohhh fine, Rogers Centre to be politically correct).

Why not create a baseball friendly lunch today, at say around 1:05pm and tune in to my favorite baseball team?


Here’s the recipe for today:

Chicago-Style Hot Dog (they do it right, just like their pizza!)


  • 1 all-beef hot dog
  • 1 poppyseed hot dog bun
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon sweet green pickle relish
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 4 tomato wedges
  • 1 dill pickle spear
  • 2 sport peppers
  • 1 dash celery salt


  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Reduce heat to low, place hot dog in water, and cook 5 minutes or until done. Remove hot dog and set aside. Carefully place a steamer basket into the pot and steam the hot dog bun 2 minutes or until warm
  2. Place hot dog in the steamed bun. Pile on the toppings in this order: yellow mustard, sweet green pickle relish, onion, tomato wedges, pickle spear, sport peppers, and celery salt. The tomatoes should be nestled between the hot dog and the top of the bun. Place the pickle between the hot dog and the bottom of the bun. Don’t even think about ketchup!

I won’t put the nutritional information down…your welcome.
