Get your mind out of the gutter.... I hear you all thinking.. :)

Italian hot dogs... are one of the best foods in life. I am surprised at how many people haven't heard of them, let alone tried one. Living in NH I have to make them myself.. but it's easy...

Sliced potatoes, peppers, onions sauteed in pan or cooked in the oven until tender (not crispy) and then put on top of hot dog in a sub roll... It's the best. In NJ they have a special roll for the dog... but a sub roll works just as well.

Google it and see what you come up with...

You of all people should know not to put potatoes, peppers and onions on the dog. It gets them all greasy and sticky. Then you have to hose them off.

Reminds me of a Chicago-style hot dog, which I also hate. All that glop on there is disgusting.

A proper hot dog should have catsup and/or mustard with maybe sauerkraut and that's it. You should be able to hold it with one hand and still drive. Not worried about things plopping into your lap.

Mmm.... Italian hot dogs! My mom used to make those when we were kids - one of the only things better is a fried sausage-and-pepper-and-onions from a vendor on the Boardwalk... :D

I cut my hair short so I wouldn't have to comb it.

So does my mom - she talks about getting them somewhere in Newark when she was kid, and how hers never quite tasted the same. :D

It isn't that I like the grease... I make my potatoes and peppers in the oven and I also use 100% whole wheat sub rolls... and unfortunately Hebrew National 99% fat free all beef dogs... I can't go off the reservation that much.. :(

Hebrew National Dog. Grilled, but not burned. Place on a toasted bakery bun. Add brown mustard to taste. Heaven.

Yeah... Newark is where the Italian Hot Dog was born... It's a Jersey thing..

When I was in NJ we stopped and had Marucca's Pizza... Gee I couldn't believe the size of the slice! I miss Jersey food... guess it's good I am in NH or I'd be back to being 25 pounds heavier...

Can I ask why they're called Italian? There is no pasta or spaghetti sauce or pamessan cheese on them.

Shouldn't they just be called Jersey dogs?

I don't eat and drive.... I can't really enjoy the food, nor can I really concentrate on driving... I'm weird... I know.. ;)

The car thing was a joke. I hope everyone understood that.

Burgers are so much better to drive with.

They really aren't over all of Jersey just up north and on the Jersey Shore...

They have green peppers on them... perhaps that makes them italian... :)

Hey, I'm blonde but I understood it was a joke... :)

However if you are eating a burger while driving.... don't get a whooper. :)

I think driving down the NJ Parkway eating a 1/2 gallon of melting ice cream in the summer is fun..

Maybe call them Newark dogs then.

We are. Catsup is the best on a dog. Every intelligent person knows that.

Catsup or Ketchup has more sugar in it than a brownie..

I would rather have a brownie... :)

Broil the hotdog, slice it long ways, drop in cheddar chunks & let them melt, top with sauteed onions & mustard--YUM!

Who'd eat something called a Jersey dog? They'd be too busy wondering what makes up the special ingredients! :D

Personally, my favorite hot dog of all time was a sheep dog.

Seriously.

Pylsur.

A sheep dog? That must either be a very hairy hot dog, a hot dog covered in wool, or a hot dog made of mutton. Either way, it sounds peculiar.

Italian sausages are really good on the barbeque, but you have to be careful when you're biting into them. I broke a tooth once, because there was a stone inside the sausage. I think if we knew what went into hot dogs and sausages, we'd stop eating them. Ignorance is bliss.

Italian sausages are something else from this discussion. We were talking italian HOT DOG. Which isn't Italian at all. It's Oscar Meyer with a whole bunch of extra unnecessary stuff added to the BUN.

A pylsur is an Icelandic Hot Dog. Sheep is part of the ingredients. Delish. Unfortunately, you have to fly thousands of miles to get one.

And I know EXACTLY what goes into sausages and hot dogs and that's why I KEEP eating them. Yum!
