yeah really. Start a Peasant food thread. There is a comfort food thread although I guess that isnt the same.
Maybe we need a hybrid cuisine thread too. Made some hot dogs tonight. They were a mix between Jersey rippers (deep fried dogs) and Chicago dogs. Used dill pickles tomatoes, celery seed.
Cant make authentic Chicago dogs in Philly. Cant get sport peppers, neon green relish or poppy seed hot dog buns.
Great - hot dog recipes....
First you need one of those hot dog carousels.(I'm not kidding! hot, cool, hot, cool eventually gives it this carmelization - just WOW) Good fresh buns - steamed. Mustard, onion, relish, cuke sliver, tomato slices - celery salt. Sports are good - pepperocinis are good too.
I guess owning the carousel takes it out of the peasant category.
