Foodie Friday – Hot Dog

When I was a kid (last century), a hot dog was something you bought from a truck at the races – it was a sausage on a stick covered in crispy batter and dipped into tomato sauce.  You might know these as corn dogs.

Now I understand most people think hot dogs are a sausage stuck lengthways in a bun.  And with mustard, ketchup and onions…

But why dog??  Originally the 'dog' referred just to the sausage – maybe after a sausage dog??

Hot dogs may not be good for you – but once in a blue moon why not??
