Total Time: 25 minutes


4 hot dog buns

3 tbsp. melted butter

1/2 c. pickle relish

1/2 yellow onion, finely chopped

1 tomato, sliced into 4 half

4 pickle spears

8 sport peppers

1/2 tsp. Provencale herbs

2tbsp 1,000 Island dressing


Preheat your BBQ grill

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Brush the outside of the hot dog buns with butter and sprinkle poppy seeds on top. Place buns, seam side down, on a baking sheet. Bake until lightly toasted, and poppy seeds stick to bun, 10 minutes.
  • In a large pot of boiling water, add hot dogs and boil until warmed through 5 minutes.
  • Place hot dogs in buns and then top with mustard, 1000 Island dressing, onion, relish, tomato slices, pickle spear, sports peppers, and Provencale Herbs. Spread poppy seeds on top of the concoction.

What are Sport Peppers?

Sport peppers are on the shelves of every grocery store around Chicago but are practically nonexistent across the rest of the country. What do they look like? They’re small and thin, roughly half the length of a pinky finger, with a distinct tapered pointy end, and they always come pickled in glass jars.
