Illinois (Chicago Style Hot Dog)

This week in our study of the Midwestern states is Illinois. The capital of Illinois is Springfield. Did you know that Illinois is known as the "Land of the Lincoln"? Abraham Lincoln became a lawyer while living in Illinois. The Lincoln Monument is in Chicago Illinois. There are some delicious foods in Illinois. Here's one of many great recipes to try...

Chicago Style Hot Dog

  • Vienna Beef Hot Dogs
  • Poppy seed Buns
  • Mustard
  • Relish
  • Fresh chopped onions
  • Tomato wedges
  • Kosher pickle spears
  • Sport peppers
  • Dash celery salt

Heat in water, steam, grill or microwave hot dog. Place the authentic Vienna Beef Hot Dog in a steamed poppy seed bun. Then pile on the toppings in this order:

  1. Yellow Mustard
  2. Bright Green Relish
  3. Fresh Chopped Onions
  4. Two Tomato Wedges
  5. Kosher Pickle Spear
  6. Two Sport Peppers (careful!)
  7. Celery Salt
***For the kids, you might want to leave off the onions and peppers, maybe even the tomatoes and pickle and just add some ketchup.

If you are from Illinois please share a recipe with us to try. I'll be back next week to tell you about the next Midwestern state we are studying. Until then thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Hi Tajuana! I read about your transferring your blog to blogger from our egroup. How's that coming along?

Sorry that I was not able to answer your email to me last time about Dr. Stanley. I still continue to listen to him and here in the Philippines, his shows on TV and Radio are still good. We haven't heard any of those things that you said to me.

God bless you and have a nice day!
