Default Relish ....... why ?!?

OK, was out with some friends this weekend and we stopped for a quick lunch at a public market food court. I got myself a bratwurst with sauerkraut, mustard and a bit of ketchup. Two friends insisted that hot dogs (or variations) must be topped with relish also (they do the red/yellow/green traffic lights condiments thing). I'm like "that is SO for kids !"

So we enter a long philosophical debate that will unlikely ever be resolved . We'd be lucky if we stay as friends

So as far as I'm concerned, (green pickle) relish serves absolutely no purpose in this world whatsoever. Either you add a slice/wedge of pickle to your dog/burger or you simply don't, but puhleeez none of that sweet, vinegary, mustardy slimey crap !

If you knew what went into hot dogs I don't think you'd be eating them anymore. After seeing what happens in slaughterhouses here in America and how hot dogs are made, I don't think I'll be eating very many of them.

Relish is a must. Salt and pepper too.

EEEW to relish...my first intro to Dogs was at he Koshe Deli's and "Dirty Water Dog" stands of NYC....Mustard and Kraut. Then there is Chilli Dogs and Texas Weiners, Cheese Dogs and Corn Dogs. A late night NYC fav being the original Papaya King.

Relish and brown deli mustard.

Only way to go.

No onions, no sauerkraut, no chili, no cheese topping, no catsup.

That's why you buy the good stuff. Applegate Farms makes probably some of the best hot dogs I have ever eaten. They are a little more expensive but it's uncured all natural beef. Make sure you get the Uncured Big Apple Hot Dogs. They are made from boneless pork shoulder and beef chuck and nothing else.


By the way I agree with you Ken, no relish shall ever touch a hot dog. Here in GA we have this place call the Varsity that makes some great slaw dogs. Slaw, chili, mustard, and some kraut. Call it a day and walk out with a stomach full of grease. Oh, those were the days.

Relish is ok on Hot dogs only. And only Dill relish (Sweet relish is gross).

Sausage, on the other hand, should be eaten with a good dark mustard and sauerkraut (with a good beer too).

Sweet relish is nasty. Dill is the only way to go.

There needs to be more uses for dill relish. And horseradish.

I would take relish over ketchup anyday.


I'm a meat and mustard guy usually, and I like my casings natural. Every once in a while our Wegmans deli will have Blood and tongue sasuage. Its pretty good, but i've yet to make a sandwich out of it.

I'd like one right now with spicy brown mustard, diced onions, and a nice helping of relish, please!

Ketchup has no place on a hot dog!

Guys ... there are more kinds of relish than just "sweet relish".

I for one like onion relish, hot pepper relish, and proper dill pickle relish.
It just depends on my mood.

I can't stand sweet relish either ...

Relish is de-lish!


Hotdog + ketchup + mustard + relish = yum yum
or
hotdog + cheese + chili = yum yum
or
hotdog + stick + batter + deep fried + ketchup + mustard = yum yum
