The newest cookbook in my collection is the Great American Hot Dog Book
. Flo’s Famous Hot Dog
from Cape Neddick Maine is the first recipe I’ve tried from the book and it was a great start. A Flo Dog reminded me very much of a N.Y. SYSTEM HOT WIENER
, in that you build it the same way. First there is your hot dog, then there is a condiment (mayo here mustard on the wiener), next comes a sauce (onion sauce here, meat sauce on the wiener), it is topped with diced onion and the seasoned with celery salt. The onion sauce, which reminds me of a relish, is a blend of sweet, smokey, spicy and salty. It sounds strange but it does pair up nicely with a hot dog. This was a totally unique hot dog and a great opening recipe for this book and I am looking forward to trying more from it.
