4 Levels of Hot Dogs: Amateur to Food Scientist | Epicurious

  • We challenged chefs of three different skill levels - an amateur, a home cook, and a professional - to make us some hot dogs. After each of them had offered up their creation, we asked a food scientist to review their work. Which one looks like the most fun on a bun?

    Each chef provided some kind of thing that I'd prefer: Emily, blazing yellow mustard. Julie, chopped onions and a special SOFT bun. Frank, scratch made wieners.
    I used to regularly make a breakfast dog with (surprise!) scrambled eggs inside!

    I prefer chicken/pork/beef mixed hot dogs instead of just the all beef and I don't like a casing on them. I've bought various expensive ones and find they aint worth it. Every video I see that recommends the best hot dogs I don't find to be close to the best I've eaten. I also prefer a slight smoke flavoring. I used to like all beef but the taste got old. I seem to be in the minority when it comes to this. I also can't eat macaroni and cheese without a hotdog chopped up in it. That's usually how I eat my hot dogs.

  • James Dorpinghaus

    Level 1: Boil store bought hotdogs
    Level 2: Braise authentic German Bratwurst
    Level 3: Poach, chill, then grill homemade lamb sausage made in a natural casing.
    The differences in their skills are clear as night and day.

    As brazilian, its sad to see hot dogs without tomato sauce, batata pure, corn, peas, vinaigrette salsa and shoestring potato on top of everything (you can also add chicken, cheese, quail egg ot lettuce, depending from which brazilian city you are from).

    Thumbs up for Julie. I'm European and I love her mix of Irish stout, English Colemans mustard, and German bratwurst. Interestingly Julie uses powdered Colman's mustard - this is even quite rare here in the UK where it is made and where people have gotten used to the pre-made stuff. Powdered Colmans is pretty hard-core. Also, the Heinz cucumber relish is very close to Northern European cucumber pickle (known as agurkesalat/gherkin salad/cucumber salad). Julie, are you sure you're American, or have you spent some time in Northern Europe?

    BTW, Frank, that is NOT a ficelle. I'm not quite sure what it is, but it would be unrecognisable to a Frenchman. It looks like it is Walmart's idea of what French people eat. It's kinda embarrassing, and I'm not even French (France is next door to us - so I know what they should look like).

    Frank tried too hard. Julia nailed it. Emily - please don't cook any more.

    Frank: *Before we get started cooking, we need to make a pan. We are going to travel into the mines in Siberia because the iron you get there is very strong and conducts heat well, so it will give your hot dog a nice crispy texture.*

    I personally like to make my own sausages, minced meat and so on. And sometimes my own bread. I think it's cheaper at times and a lot more healthy than half of what you buy (high end products included). So I like Frank's recipe a lot more and it takes a few minutes honestly why the hate?
