Hot dog helpers

Remember when all it took to dress a dog was a squiggle of neon yellow mustard and a splash of ketchup? We’ve come a long way. These days, dogs are dressed to the nines. Chefs and food trucks are pushing limits, topping hot dogs with everything from kimchee to mango chutney. It’s an exciting time to eat a hot dog. Here’s some inspiration to help you create your own delicious masterpiece:

∎ HAWAIIAN: Thinly sliced pineapple, jalapeno peppers, bacon

∎ FRENCH PICNIC: Whole-grain mustard, chopped cornichons, aioli (garlic mayonnaise), served on baguette

∎ THE ITALIAN: Wrap the hotdog in salami before grilling. Top with garlic pickled peppers and sharp provolone

∎ SWEET PEACH: Chopped fresh or frozen peaches, shaved red onion, barbecue sauce, fresh cilantro

∎ GREEN GARDEN: Scallion mayonnaise, thinly sliced cucumber, fresh tarragon, arugula

∎ MIDWESTERN: Pepper jack cheese, fresh corn kernels, pickled jalapenos, diced red bell pepper

∎ BETTY: Grape jelly mixed with brown mustard, topped with crushed kettle-cooked potato chips
