Remember when all it took to dress a dog was a squiggle of neon yellow mustard and a splash of ketchup? We've come a long way. 

 

These days, dogs are dressed to the nines. Never mind all the geographic differences (it seems like every major city now has to claim its own distinct way of doing up a hot dog). Chefs and food trucks are getting in on pushing limits, too, topping hot dogs with everything from kimchee to mango chutney. 

 

It's an exciting time to eat a hot dog. To help you create your own delicious masterpiece, we came up with some creative ways to adorn your dog. 

 

  • Reuben dog: Sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, Swiss cheese, caraway seeds 

     

  • Hawaiian: Thin slices of fresh pineapple, jalapeno peppers, bacon 

     

  • French picnic: Whole-grain mustard, chopped cornichons, aioli (garlic mayonnaise), served on baguette
