Need some flavorful help

My Mom is starting a new venture in life. She is opening a mobile food trailer that she plans to take to different venues. In her area, hot dog wraps seem to be a big hit. She asked me to come up with some flavor combinations (slaw dog, chili dog, etc.), so I thought I would come here and see what ideas y'all might have. I would have gone to Zippylip first, but as we all know, he is not very creative when it comes to food. :laugh: :P

Thanks in advance. Joe

    Maybe she could do a version of this, very popular here. -RP

    For me, the quality of the dog is #1. I will go out of my way if I find a place that has a really good wiener, like Vienna Beef.

    For inspiration, check:

    The basic dog is the best seller there, but the specialities are completely over the top!

    Try a New York dog and a Chicago dog. Try a bacon wraped dog. Chili dogs and coneys are popular. I would go all beef. Where are you locted? If your close to LA go and Pinks. Good luck
  • The original hot dog wrap...the francheezie.

    Sorry, I know this probably doesn't help, but that's what came to mind when you said hot dog wrap.

    Honestly, hot dog wraps? Like a hot dog and toppings/condiments in a tortilla? I find the idea odd. Generally the wrap crowd tends to be the yuppie/wasp crowd (not intending to be offensive here, I'm a wasp after all), looking for an easy way to feel health conscious (white bread is bad, apparently). And I just don't see how that merged with salty, fatty, nitrate-laden hot dogs. Chicken wraps? Okay. Veggie wraps? Definitely. But hot dog wraps? I think we have a nominee for WTF of the week.

    Then again, if the wrap crowd shuns white bread, but embraces shredded cheese and tons of ranch dressing, then I guess one can't be too surprised by the low-carb tubesteak diet.

    Don't get me wrong, people can darned well eat what they like, I'm just curious about how this came into being.

    Let's explore from the perspective of the stereotypes of my hometown Chicago (home of the best damned hot dog around...Vienna Beef).
    A. Lower-class uneducated (probably one of TheDirtyBurger's students) south sider has a hot dog.
    B. Yuppie north sider tastes hot dog...thinks "this is pretty good, but you know how we could make it better? Let's replace the bun with a whole wheat tortilla, get rid of the hot dog, and fill it with bean sprouts, avocado and grilled skinless chicken breast.
    C. The new wrap explodes in popularity on the north side, and slowly expands south.
    D. South sider tastes the new wrap and think, you know what would make this better? A hot dog.

    And there you have it...the hot dog wrap.

    i think its all where your from, is that a sub roll, a potato bun, wheres the soft sides you smear butter on and fry them ;)


    if you take the hotdog out, lobster is good ;)


    heres how to build a heart attack :laugh: 1/4 pound pearl stiffed with surkraut, brown sugar, mustard


    big hunk cabot exra sharp cheddar


    bacon and more bacon


    egg it and serve with thousand isle dressing

  • You easterners with your Pearls might be a little odd, but I think we can agree that the New England style bun is a superior hot dog delivery vehicle. Anything with the option to butter and fry is a fantastic innovation.

    Can't forgive you for violating your lobster with mayo, though.

    if you want even more flavor with the rolls, add some bbq rub to the butter before frying ;) i did go overboard with the mayo on that one :laugh:

    The kimchi dog is gaining popularity in a lot of places I've been.
