Origins of a Hot Dog

A hot dog  is a cooked sausage, traditionally grilled or steamed and served in a fresh sliced bun. Hot dog variants include the brat in a bun, corn dog and pigs in blankets. Typical hot dog garnishes include mustard, ketchup, onions, mayonnaise,
relish, coleslaw, cheese, chili, olives, and sauerkraut.

This kind of sausage was culturally imported from Germany and popularized in the United States, where it became a working-class street food sold at hot dog stands and hotdog carts, and developed an association with baseball and American culture. Hotdog preparation and condiment styles vary regionally in the US. Although linked in particular with New York City and New York City cuisine, the hot dog became ubiquitous throughout the United States during the 20th century, becoming an important part of other regional cuisines, most notably Chicago street cuisine.

Claims about the hot dog invention

Claims about the hot dog invention are difficult to assess, as stories assert the creation of the sausage, the placing of the sausage
(or another kind of sausage) on bread or a bun as finger food, the popularization of the existing dish, or the application of the name “hot dog” to a sausage and bun combination most commonly used with ketchup or mustard and sometimes relish.

The word frankfurter comes from Frankfurt, Germany, where pork sausages similar to hot dogs originated. These sausages, Frankfurter Würstchen, were known since the 13th century and given to the people on the event of imperial coronations, starting with the coronation
of Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor as King. Wiener refers to Vienna, Austria, whose German name is “Wien”, home to a sausage made of a mixture of pork and beef (cf. Hamburger, whose name also derives from a German-speaking city). Johann Georg Lahner, an 18th/19th century butcher from the Franconian city of Coburg, is said to have brought the Frankfurter Würstchen to Vienna, where he
added beef to the mixture and simply called it Frankfurter.  Nowadays, in German-speaking countries, except Austria, hot dog sausages are called Wiener or Wiener Würstchen (Würstchen means “little sausage”), in differentiation to the original pork-only mixture from Frankfurt. In Swiss German, it is called Wienerli, while in Austria the terms Frankfurter or Frankfurter Würstel are used.
