Seattle Dogs

Seattle Dogs – Irresistibly Delicious!

So what to heck are Seattle Dogs? They’re basically a hot dog on a toasted bun that has been smeared with cream cheese and then topped with grilled onions!


I’ve never been to Seattle but it’s my understanding that every night when the bars start closing party-goers flock to the hot dog stands. What they’re after are Seattle dogs!

There are other options including jalapeños and other peppers, sauerkraut or grilled cabbage, and scallions.

Condiments such as mustard (American yellow or spicy brown), barbecue sauce, and Sriracha sauce are favorites, while ketchup is used less often.

But it’s the cream cheese and grilled onions that define the Seattle Dog! It sounds like a weird combination but it is oh so delicious!

I think it’s neat to see how different regions come up with different ways to dress up hot dogs!

If you’re just a dog and mustard kind of person you really need to give Seattle Dogs a try.
