When we used to live closer to it, Sammy's Taste of Chicago was one of our favorite weekly stops. The business had a Sunday special: Chicago hot dogs for $1. It was always great to have those dogs for such a great price.
Some of our favorite dishes are ones in which we re-create dishes from restaurants, as we've done before. And recently, fellow Wisconsin food blogger Dax posted a recipe for his version of The Milwaukee Dog, only increasing my urge to taste a great all-beef frank.
We did change a few things: We omitted the banana peppers because we like them, but don't love them; we used regular hot dog buns because we couldn't find one with poppyseeds (know where we can? Leave a comment; but we did use an all-beef, Chicago-style hot dog.
