FCI's blog The Hot Plate featured contestants from its fourth annual hot dog competition this week. And look at the creativity! Francine Lee, a current student at FCI, topped her hot dog with puréed baked beans, fried eggs, bacon, grilled portobello mushrooms, and grilled tomatoes to make a true English breakfast inspired hot dog.
Instead of regular chilli to top her dog, culinary student Bettina Will cooked up a batch of ground lamb chilli with sour cherries, cumin, and cinnamon. This gets us thinking about all the bun and hot dog possibilities -- never settle for boring hot dogs again!
