Ah National Hot Dog Day, you just don’t get any more American than having a whole day dedicated to this bun and meat combination. Just like the good ol’ U.S. of A, this tasty treat began with immigrants. While sausage was well established in Europe, particularly in Frankfurt and Vienna Germany, the hot dog did not come to life until it was introduced to Americans in the mid 1800’s, when German immigrants would distribute it to patrons by street carts. Towards the end of the century, Coney Island, the very first hot dog stand opened to the public. It didn’t take long before this hand held delicacy sky-rocketed and was being sold at ball parks across the country. The people were hooked, and throughout time the hot dog would prove to be a staple in American cuisine.
Loved by all ages, it is difficult to find anyone who dislikes this piece of patriotic perfection. The hot dog shines with versatility! It can be enjoyed in so many different ways, it is impossible for us to list them all in one day. From the traditional ketchup, mustard and onions, to the Chicago Dog loaded with tomatoes and neon green relish, there is something delicious for everyone. Here at Motion Technology Inc., we love coming up with all kinds of fun ways to enjoy our hot dogs. While we love grilling them up in our high-speed oven, the MultiChef XL®, we found that frying them with the AutoFry® is a real game changer!
