Chicago never ‘tasted’ so good. Enjoy these dogs topped with pepperoncini peppers.


  • 2 medium ripe tomatoes
  • 16 pepperoncini peppers
  • Yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped white onion
  • 1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
  • Celery salt
  • 8 1/4 pound all-beef hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns, preferably poppy seed


  1. Prepare the grill on medium heat.
  2. In the meantime, cut each tomato into 1/4-inch slices and then in half. Set aside.
  3. Using a sharp knife, makes a few shallow cuts in each of the hot dogs and then place on the grill for 6 minutes, turning occasionally, with the lid closed. During the last few minutes of cooking, add the buns to the grill to toast.
  4. Place each grilled dog in a bun and then tuck the tomato slices into the side. Top the hot dogs with mustard, onion, relish and a few sprinkles of celery salt. Serve immediately.
