Whether you are a New York native or a Chicagoan at heart, there has always been debate about who serves up the best hot dog in the country. Kosher versus Vienna beef, ketchup versus mustard, or steamed versus grilled. The controversy is as hyped up as a Cardinals vs. Cubs game at Wrigley Field. But who says you have to choose just one favorite? I’ve done some hot dog research so you don’t have to (kidding, I mean everyone should do hot dog research right?) and decided to share my top four from around the states.

Here are some of the easiest and most tasty hot dogs from the West Coast to the East Coast. Simple ingredients and why not try your own twist and share your recipe with us on Cookmore.com. Oh and if you are a connoisseur I’d love to hear where you found the world’s best hot dog so please feel free to share in the comments. Happy Eating and remember, when you cook with Kenmore, you cook with love!
