Top Ten Best Hot Dog Toppings


The Top Ten

1 Ketchup

My favorite hotdog topping.

Ketchup is the only thing I have on a hot dog. I'm a girl that likes plain food, everything has to be plain.

If you are over 14, please don't put ketchup on a hot dog. It's unacceptable.

Ketchup makes everything taste good

2 Mustard

I thought hardly anybody liked mustard, until I came here. I knew it would always be behind ketchup though, unfortunately. Love my 'dog with just a little bit of this, not nasty sweet catsup!

Mustard is the most common topping why is it number two?! Ketchup is basically artifical tomato paste, sugar, and corn syrup. Mustard is way better. Ketchup does not go good with it and mustard does. It adds color to the hot dog while ketchup takes away the flavor and makes it too sweet.

Mustard is the only topping a hotdog needs. Preferably spicy brown mustard but any will do. How is ketchup higher than mustard? Ketchup does not belong on a hotdog!

Ketchup #1? Relish #12? this list is seriously fishy

3 Cheese

Cheese is good only if there is chili. The saltiness of the cheese combined with the hot dog can be a bit much.

I love them hot off the grill with shredded cheddar, and that red onion sauce. Best snack ever.

I am picky when it cones to toppings but I love my cheese

Cheese should be number 2 by a landslide.

4 Onions

Raw white onions. Excellent.

My husband loves them! I like grilled onions

Raw white onion and mustard- can't beat it

Boiled diced onions on top is divine! - KJR42

5 Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is awesome on hotdogs

Go for a siracha infused mayo for a nice kick of heat.

6 Chili

It's tasty and necessary for every Hot-dgo :P

Love it will not eat one with out it

Chili should be higher in the list

Koegels chili chub on a dog is the best.

7 Avocado
8 Bacon

I love bacon but it's too salty on a dog.

Bacon is the best! Think about a world without fresh, yummy, juicy, crunchy, warm, bacon in the morning! Bacon now has its own jewelry, and cups and much more! I ll oo vv ee b acon n! @!

9 Pickles

A pickle on top? Especially a garlicky one? Simply awesome!

10 Coney Sauce

Of you do the coney make sure it is Flint style.

A must have - Flint style

The Contenders

11 Sauerkraut

Love it. It tastes incredible :) id personally have it on sausage dogs or hotdogs as it tastes like pickles. I think it tastes good:) Try it and enjoy lovelys

Take the time to make your own kraut. You won't be disappointed.

This is one of the four condiments when you buy hot dogs at costco

Always only Sauerkraut and mustard. No other way for a dog to be eaten

12 Relish

Unreplaceable! Countries without relish cannot understand the value of a hot dog, if they've never tasted it with relish!

I like plain hotdogs

Ketchup AND mustard suck! Relish is the only thing necessary.

13 Jalepenos

People need to try this. I had an amazing dinner when I put Caesar salad dressing on my hot dog. The toppings mentioned are amazing alone or together.

I make a Mixture of Finely diced tomatoe, Onion, Jalepenos, a little horse radish, and salt and pepper to taste, sometimes I add a little California or Blue Cheese dressing to the mix, let it refrigerate for about 3 hours

14 Honey Mustard
15 Celery Salt
16 Coleslaw

Yes! Slaw, diced onions and meat sauce...culinary perfection...

Not a great dog without slaw and onions.

Slaw dog and guac, slaw dog and grilled onions...
