A Chicago style hot dog, or Chicago Dog, is a steamed or water-simmered all-beef frankfurter on a poppy seed bun. Fluky's, which claims to have invented the Chicago Style Hot Dog on Maxwell Street in Depression-ridden 1929 is no longer in operation in Chicago, Illinois. The hot dog is traditionally topped with yellow mustard, chopped white onions, sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato wedges, pickled sport peppers, and a dash of celery salt. Grilled hot dogs are called Char Dogs. This recipe tries to recreate the traditional steamed poppy seed bun using hot dog buns. If you can find them, "S. Rosen's Mary Ann" hot dog buns are the bun of choice.
