How to Make the Best Hot Dog Sandwich Ever

This is a bit different… but SO delicious. It’s all about the great taste of Nathan’s Beef Franks made famous on the Boardwalk in New York’s Coney Island. (An East Coast treasure.) Serve 2 dogs sliced on 2 pieces of Deli Sourdough Rye bread. (A West Coast thing,) Garnish with Mustard, onion, tomatoes, lettuce and celery salt. (Definitely favorites on any Chicago Dawg.) Add a side of beans and a pickle. But remember, if you have 2 of these sandwiches, that’s 4 big wieners.
