Spiced Up Versions of the BBQ Classic

A funky little place on Freret St. in New Orleans, Dat Dog, is offering wild hot dog flavors with a huge twist on what you’re used to seeing in the American BBQ classic.

This small hot dog restaurant is actually a shed, opened after Hurricane Katrina by Skip Murray. The line typically wraps around the corner, and some of the most demanded menu items include the white trash fries, fries topped with chili, sour cream, guacamole, onions, cheese, and jalapeños, as well as the alligator sausage dog and the Guinness dog. They also give you a huge option of fries, including Andouille Sauce Fries and Crawfish Etouffe’ Fries. Their hot dog options surpass just meat hot dogs, too: the Sea Dog is actually a tempura-battered white cod filet.

Dat Dog also offers a huge list of national and international beers to wash down the food with, including a favorite local, Canebrake beer. The hot dogs are a little expensive, around $8 or $9, but they are large and stuffed with toppings, and there is spacious outdoor seating. Monday through Saturday from 4pm to 7pm there’s Happy Hour so get down to New Orleans to see what all of the fuss is about.

THE #1 COPYCAT RECIPES WEBSITE

For 30 years I've been deconstructing America's most iconic brand-name foods to make the best original clone recipes for you to use at home. Welcome to my lab.

This huge chicken chain offers seven delicious dressings to top three salad choices, and this is my current favorite of the bunch. The Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing is best on a Southwestern-style salad like the one on Chick-fil-A’s menu with mixed greens, black beans, corn, spicy chicken, and tortilla strips on top. But it’ll work on just about any mixed greens salad or burrito bowl you come up with at home or use it as a dip for chicken fingers, taquitos, and Southwestern eggrolls.

For a good home clone be sure to smash the avocado until no chunks remain and let the dressing sit for at least an hour before you use it so the dried herbs, onion, and garlic can rehydrate and the flavors can bloom.

Menu Description: "Smooth and spicy cheese dip. Served with unlimited crisp tortilla chips."

Many who have tried the original say it's the best queso dip they've ever had, so I had to get on the case. Talking to a store manager I found out that the dip is made with American cheese and a little Parmesan, but the rest of the ingredients were going to have to be determined in the underground lab. When I got down there—using the elevator hidden in a fake outhouse in the corner of a vacant lot—I immediately rinsed the dip in a strainer and discovered bits of spinach, onion and two kinds of peppers. The red pepper, which is responsible for the kick, appeared to be rehydrated dry peppers. It looks like they're red jalapenos, but since the red ones can be hard to find I chopped up some red Fresno peppers and the dip tasted great—full of flavor with a nice spicy kick. Just be sure to remove the inner membranes and seeds from the peppers before you mince them up, or your cool dip may end up packing a lot of heat.

For those who like chili in your cheese dip, check out my copycat Chili's Chili Queso recipe here.

Let's face it, it's the sauce that makes this sandwich so good. If you take the Bourbon Street Glaze away from Subway's new Bourbon Street Chicken Sandwich, you end up with. a boring chicken sub. Once you've got this secret sauce cloned, you can drizzle it over your next boring chicken sub to experience the greatness that is one of Subway's most delicious products.

If you're a fan of the Subway Sweet Onion Sauce, click here for my recipe.

Menu Description: “A deliciously different way to taco. Tangy grilled chicken, sweet Asian chile sauce and dumpling sauce stuffed into crispy wonton shells and topped with a crunchy slaw and cilantro mix.”

Re-creating this hit appetizer requires cloning four parts none of which are difficult: Grilled chicken, coleslaw, secret dumpling sauce, and the crispy wonton shell to hold all of it together. For the chicken, we’ll grill a couple of thighs and chop them up. Then we’ll use bottled sweet chili sauce—usually found in your grocery store where Asian foods are parked—to punch up the flavor.

The coleslaw is easy with a dressing that’s only five ingredients. The slaw is best when it has some time to sit and wilt a bit, so plan ahead for the best flavor. You can slice the cabbage yourself, but a coleslaw kit that’s a combo of sliced cabbage and shredded carrots is a big time-saver. Just measure out 4 cups of the cabbage blend and mix it with the minced cilantro and dressing.

Wonton taco shells are not a thing you can usually find in stores, so we’ll make our own using wonton wrappers and a skillet of hot oil. When the oil is hot, add a wonton wrapper and use tongs to fold it over diagonally as it fries until it’s crispy on both sides. It takes less than a minute to fry each wonton taco shell, and you’ll get better at it as you go. Just be sure to leave plenty of room in the taco for the delicious fillings to come.

I've cloned a lot of dishes from Applebee's. See if I hacked your favorites here.

The sweet-and-savory breakfast sandwich made with two slices of French toast first appeared on the Burger King menu in 2019, but it was just for a limited time. In 2021, BK brought the breakfast sandwich back, and this time it came with a new ingredient: buttery maple spread. The first version of the sandwich was good, but the sequel with the new maple spread is great.

And that’s right where this clone starts. The hack here for the buttery maple spread is just three ingredients and it will chill out in your fridge while you make the easy French toast. Find small, thin slices of white bread for that. Sara Lee makes a loaf of bread called Delightful that works great.

The real French toast sandwiches come with either sausage, bacon, or ham, so pick your favorite and insert it between the egg and cheese. If your ingredients cool down as you are prepping, just pop each assembled sandwich into your microwave for about 15 seconds prior to serving for perfectly warmed French toast and gooey melted cheese.

Menu Description: "Chicken breast tenderloins sauteed with bell peppers, roasted garlic and onions in a garlic cream sauce over angel hair."

This dish is a big favorite of Olive Garden regulars. Chicken tenderloins are lightly breaded and sauteed along with colorful bell peppers and chopped red onion. Angel hair pasta is tossed into the pan along with a healthy dose of fresh scampi sauce. The sauce is really the star, so you might think about doubling the recipe. If you're cooking for two, you can prepare this dish for the table in one large skillet, saving the remaining ingredients for another meal. If you're making all four servings at once, you need two skillets. If you can't find fresh chicken tenderloins (the tender part of the chicken breast), you can usually find bags of them in the freezer section.

Menu Description: “Four buttermilk pancakes layered with a fiesta of warm cinnamon spread, crunchy mini-churros and sweet cream cheese icing. Crowned with whipped topping.”

This creative flapjack recipe is cloned by starting with my hack for IHOP’s famous buttermilk pancakes from Top Secret Recipes Step-by-Step. A fresh stack of these fluffy pancakes is then layered with the sweet cinnamon spread made with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon.

Rather than making churros from scratch, we’ll save time by using frozen churros. I found some at Target and Walmart. Chop them into bite-size chunks and arrange them on top of the pancakes, then drizzle your stack with the homemade cream cheese icing recipe here, and prepare to accept your “oohs” and “ahhs.”

It’s about time for Top Secret Recipes to hack one of Starbucks all-time bestselling baked snacks. For this banana bread knock-off, I settled on a blend of both baking powder and baking soda for a good crumb and dark crust that perfectly resembles the original. And I decided it best to go big on the dark brown sugar, not only for flavor but also because the extra molasses in the darker brown sugar triggers a helpful leavening boost from the baking soda. It’s also important to know that an accurate clone must have both walnuts and pecans in the mix, because that’s what’s really in it, according to the official Starbucks website ingredients info. All other copycats I saw got it wrong when it came to the nut blend, so if you want a true clone, this is the hack to bake.

Menu Description: "Fajita-marinated chicken, corn relish, mixed cheese, cilantro, diced tomato and crispy tortilla strips. Garnished with a chipotle-ranch drizzle and cheese quesadilla wedges. Served with our citrus-balsamic dressing."

I'm a happy camper on a Saturday afternoon when diving into one of these big salads, served up with a Presidente Margarita to help relieve my hangover from a Friday night hoo-ha. For the last several years, this has been the go-to salad when you're dining at Chili's. The chicken marinade is delicious, the corn relish is a great touch, and the citrus-balsamic vinaigrette totally rocks. And where else can you get a salad that includes slices of cheese quesadilla on the side? I love it. If you're a fan of the original, this 4-serving clone will bring it home.

Menu Description: Tender marinated steak, fire-roasted poblanos, cilantro pesto, yellow onions, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and fresh cilantro. Served with housemade salsa verde.

One of California Pizza Kitchen’s most popular “globally-inspired” pizzas is this fabulous pie topped with strips of marinated flank steak, cilantro pesto, and fire-roasted poblano pepper. I broke it down and hacked all the parts for you—including the awesome salsa verde that goes on top—so that you can assemble two beautiful pizzas that look and taste like the real thing.

Sometimes deliciousness requires patience, so be sure to plan this clone one day in advance to allow your dough to properly proof and the steak to fully marinate. You can also prep the pesto, salsa verde, and roasted poblano one day in advance so that when it comes time to make pizzas the next day, you just need to cook the carne asada, build the pizzas, and bake.

It was the creator of Pizza Hut’s Stuffed Crust Pizza who came up with the idea to cook bits of maple syrup into small pancakes for a new sweet-and-savory breakfast sandwich offering from the world’s #1 fast food chain. Tom Ryan’s idea became a reality in 2003 when the McGriddles—with maple-flavored griddle cake buns—debuted on McDonald’s breakfast menu, and the sandwich is still selling like hotcakes today.

To make four cloned McGriddles at home you’ll first need to produce eight perfectly round griddle cakes that are infused with sweet maple bits. Recipes that instruct you to make hard candy from maple syrup for this hack will fail to tell you that the shattered shards of hard candy don't completely melt when the griddle cakes are cooked resulting in a distinct crunch not found in the real McDonald’s product. Also, breaking the hard maple candy into small uniform chunks is both difficult and messy. My solution was to make a flavorful maple gummy puck that could be neatly petite diced and sprinkled into the batter as it cooks.

Just be sure to use maple flavoring rather than maple extract for the maple gummy. Maple flavoring has a more intense flavor than the extract and the dark brown caramel coloring will make your maple bits look like pancake syrup. You’ll also need one or two 3½-inch rings to make griddle cakes that are the perfect size for your clones.

This recipe duplicates the bacon version of the sandwich, but you can replace the bacon with a patty made from breakfast sausage for the sausage version, or just go with egg and cheese.

Menu Description: “A baked blend of Italian cheeses, pasta, and our signature five-cheese marinara.”

Hacking Olive Garden’s famous baked ziti would not be possible without a perfect clone of the chain’s popular five-cheese marinara sauce. I started with my previous hack of the plain marinara for Olive Garden’s Chicken Parmigiana and enhanced it with the addition of five kinds of Italian cheese and heavy cream.

Determining which five types of cheese are in a prepared sauce is tough without some insider assistance, so before cooking I focused my efforts on convincing a server to ask the chef for the list…and I got it! The blend of cheese used here in the sauce comes straight from the kitchen of my local Olive Garden. When you taste it you’ll know the intel was legit.

After the sauce is added to the pasta it’s topped with a cheese-and-breadcrumb mix called “ziti topping,” then it’s browned under a salamander (for the restaurant version) or a broiler (for your version). The result is a beautiful dish with great sauce and a cheesy topping that should satisfy even the pickiest baked ziti fanatics.

I've cloned a ton of dishes from Olive Garden. See if I hacked your favorite here.

It’s a good thing that Panera’s delicious tomato soup is made with pear tomatoes so we can use canned San Marzano-style tomatoes for a quick and easy hack, and we’ll pump up the tomato flavor with added tomato paste.

Other hacks will call for some form of broth here, but the broth is unnecessary and it's not in the real thing so a good clone recipe wouldn't include it. There is plenty of flavorful liquid in the canned tomatoes and we’ll sculpt the final flavor with herbs and spices, sugar, and lemon juice.

You can buy premade croutons to use on top of your soup, but I’ve also included an easy hack to make black pepper croutons from focaccia or ciabatta bread just like those you get at the restaurant.

At Cosmic Wings, Applebee’s second attempt at a virtual chicken wing chain, they have a code name for the Cheetos crumbs that coat their signature wings: Cheedle. The delivery-only wing chain debuted in February 2021 and has several other more traditional sauce flavors such as classic Buffalo, honey mustard, and spicy barbecue, but it’s the sauce made with Cheetos that puts the cosmic in the wings.

The concept is simple and the hack is straightforward once you pick your flavor or Cheetos to crush. Are you going with the more mellow regular cheese flavor Cheetos, or the kicked up Flamin’ Hot Cheetos? Pick your flavor and crush up some “Cheedle” in a food processor. If you don’t have one of those you can put the Cheetos in a storage bag and whack on ‘em with a kitchen mallet or rolling pin.

Fry some wings, baste them with a buttery sauce, and toss them in the Cheedle of your choice. And if Flamin’ Hot isn’t hot enough for you, you could use Cheetos XXX Hot Flamin’ Hot Cheetos that are twice as hot as Flamin’ Hot, and you’d have kicked-up version that isn’t offered on the menu.

Menu Description: “A deliciously different way to taco. Tangy grilled chicken, sweet Asian chile sauce and dumpling sauce stuffed into crispy wonton shells and topped with a crunchy slaw and cilantro mix.”

Re-creating this hit appetizer requires cloning four parts none of which are difficult: Grilled chicken, coleslaw, secret dumpling sauce, and the crispy wonton shell to hold all of it together. For the chicken, we’ll grill a couple of thighs and chop them up. Then we’ll use bottled sweet chili sauce—usually found in your grocery store where Asian foods are parked—to punch up the flavor.

The coleslaw is easy with a dressing that’s only five ingredients. The slaw is best when it has some time to sit and wilt a bit, so plan ahead for the best flavor. You can slice the cabbage yourself, but a coleslaw kit that’s a combo of sliced cabbage and shredded carrots is a big time-saver.

Wonton taco shells are not a thing you can usually find in stores, so we’ll make our own using wonton wrappers and a skillet of hot oil. When the oil is hot, add a wonton wrapper and use tongs to fold it over diagonally as it fries until it’s crispy on both sides. It takes less than a minute to fry each wonton taco shell, and you’ll get better at it as you go. Just be sure to leave plenty of room in the taco for the delicious fillings to come.

Taco Bell’s popular Cinnamon Twists are inspired by a traditional Mexican treat made by frying duros de harina until puffy, then sprinkling the crunchy spirals with cinnamon/sugar. Duros, or duritos, is a special pasta made with wheat flour and cornmeal or cornstarch that swells up in seconds in hot oil, transforming it into a light and crispy snack.

You can find duros in many shapes at Latin markets or online, but for this hack you want spirals that look like rotini. Most duros you find will likely be saltier and denser than what Taco Bell uses since the chain created a custom recipe for American palates.

It takes just 10 to 15 seconds for the pasta to puff up in the oil—it will be sudden and dramatic and the duros crisps will float to the top. When they do, gently poke at them, and stir them around in the hot oil until they are evenly cooked. It only takes about a minute to fry each batch.

Watch me make these tasty twists in this new video!

It was the creator of Pizza Hut’s Stuffed Crust Pizza who came up with the idea to cook bits of maple syrup into small pancakes for a new sweet-and-savory breakfast sandwich offering from the world’s #1 fast food chain. Tom Ryan’s idea became a reality in 2003 when the McGriddles—with maple-flavored griddle cake buns—debuted on McDonald’s breakfast menu, and the sandwich is still selling like hotcakes today.

To make four cloned McGriddles at home you’ll first need to produce eight perfectly round griddle cakes that are infused with sweet maple bits. Recipes that instruct you to make hard candy from maple syrup for this hack will fail to tell you that the shattered shards of hard candy don't completely melt when the griddle cakes are cooked resulting in a distinct crunch not found in the real McDonald’s product. Also, breaking the hard maple candy into small uniform chunks is both difficult and messy. My solution was to make a flavorful maple gummy puck that could be neatly petite diced and sprinkled into the batter as it cooks.

Just be sure to use maple flavoring rather than maple extract for the maple gummy. Maple flavoring has a more intense flavor than the extract and the dark brown caramel coloring will make your maple bits look like pancake syrup. You’ll also need one or two 3½-inch rings to make griddle cakes that are the perfect size for your clones.

This recipe duplicates the bacon version of the sandwich, but you can replace the bacon with a patty made from breakfast sausage for the sausage version, or just go with egg and cheese.

This super-spicy, slightly-sweet dipping sauce was introduced in the Fall of 2020 with the debut of the Spicy McNuggets, and it was the first new McDonald’s dipping sauce since the 2017 re-release of the infamous Szechuan Sauce (sauce mob details and hack here). The Mighty Hot Sauce was only offered for a limited time, and it vanished along with the Spicy McNuggets later that year. But not for long. Due to a social media outcry, Spicy McNuggets and Mighty Hot Sauce came back to the Golden Arches on February 1, 2021, for another limited-time-only run.

Now you can get that same heavenly Mighty Hot Sauce heat any time you want at home with this simple formula and use it as a dip for chicken fingers, wings, or whatever. This hack will give you about ½ cup of the sauce, but feel free to double it for a mightier portion. Just add another 20 seconds to the cooking time.

If you want the best McDonald’s match use Texas Pete’s cayenne sauce for your hack. If you can’t find that brand, go with Frank’s.

As Pizza Hut veers away from salads it’s becoming harder to find their popular Italian dressing. Perhaps this is why we’ve been getting an increasing number of requests here to hack the endangered classic salad sauce before it becomes extinct. When a search for the salad dressing here in Las Vegas hit a dead end I was thankful for a TSR fan in Pennsylvania who was able to send me a giant 1-gallon bottle of the stuff that should last me though most of the decade.

Sure, it’s a lot of dressing, but the benefit of having an official bottle is that it comes with an official list of ingredients on the label. That was certainly helpful and informative, although I opted to not include the propylene glycol alginate (ick!) and xanthan gum in my version and kept it to simply basic ingredients, plus MSG. Monosodium glutamate is practically as safe as salt and it’s an important part of the umami flavor found in the original. A respectable clone cannot be made without this important ingredient, so include it if you want a perfect match. You can find MSG in stores in the spice aisle under the brand-name Ac’cent or in bulk online.

For a great chicken tortilla soup that doesn’t skimp on chicken and comes packed with other goodies like two kinds of beans, corn, chiles, onion, celery, garlic, and cilantro you’ll want to hack Chick-fil-A’s hearty version. Their soup is not only surprisingly good for a fast food chain, but it could also stand up to tortilla soups from any full-service chain, and these preparation secrets will guide you through a spot-on at-home clone.

For the white beans look for canned navy beans or small white beans. Cannellini beans and Great Northern beans are too big for a perfect clone, but if that's all you can find they’ll still work here.

The chicken is made the same way as in my Top Secret Recipe for Chick-fil-A Southwest Chicken Salad—it’s brined for four hours to infuse it with flavor before it gets grilled. Keep that extra prep time in mind when planning your soup.

Chick-fil-A uses natural roasted chicken flavor in their version, and we can do the same by using Better Than Bouillon Roasted Chicken Base found in many stores and online. That particular ingredient will give you the best clone, but if you can’t track it down you can also use regular bouillon cubes.

Top your soup with fried tortilla strips sold in bags or just crumble some of your favorite tortilla chips over the top, and grab a spoon.

This huge chicken chain offers seven delicious dressings to top three salad choices, and this is my current favorite of the bunch. The Avocado Lime Ranch Dressing is best on a Southwestern-style salad like the one on Chick-fil-A’s menu with mixed greens, black beans, corn, spicy chicken, and tortilla strips on top. But it’ll work on just about any mixed greens salad or burrito bowl you come up with at home or use it as a dip for chicken fingers, taquitos, and Southwestern eggrolls.

For a good home clone be sure to smash the avocado until no chunks remain and let the dressing sit for at least an hour before you use it so the dried herbs, onion, and garlic can rehydrate and the flavors can bloom.

Menu Description: Tender marinated steak, fire-roasted poblanos, cilantro pesto, yellow onions, Mozzarella, Monterey Jack and fresh cilantro. Served with housemade salsa verde.

One of California Pizza Kitchen’s most popular “globally-inspired” pizzas is this fabulous pie topped with strips of marinated flank steak, cilantro pesto, and fire-roasted poblano pepper. I broke it down and hacked all the parts for you—including the awesome salsa verde that goes on top—so that you can assemble two beautiful pizzas that look and taste like the real thing.

Sometimes deliciousness requires patience, so be sure to plan this clone one day in advance to allow your dough to properly proof and the steak to fully marinate. You can also prep the pesto, salsa verde, and roasted poblano one day in advance so that when it comes time to make pizzas the next day, you just need to cook the carne asada, build the pizzas, and bake.


Classic Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce

The hot dog—a simple bun and wiener—is a New York invention, first sold on the boardwalk at Coney Island. But coney, in lowercase, is a version of a hot dog with a soupy beef sauce and sometimes other toppings.

Although one might instantly place the coney hot dog in Brooklyn, its true origin is in Michigan. Attributed to Greek and Macedonian immigrants who came to the United States via Ellis Island, learned about the plain hot dog in New York, and then moved up north and west to settle, the coney dog is now a zealously preserved treasure in Detroit, where Greek diners serve it proudly.

Many recipes claim to be the original, with a variety of ingredients having room in the dish. Regardless of the "originality" of the recipe, all coney dogs are as delicious as the next. Our flavorful and spice-filled version is easy to prep and cook, so make bigger batches and freeze for later use. Our complete recipe has the ingredients for the sauce and the instructions for assembling these tasty dogs.


Heinz Original Baked Beans

Texture and Taste

The best way to describe this can is navy beans floating in an abyss of Heinz ketchup.

Eat This, Not That! Verdict

I personally was not a fan of this can of beans at all. The sauce was very runny and very prominent in tomato flavor. One editor bluntly wrote, "Tastes like it's drowning in ketchup." On the other end of the spectrum, one editor ranked this can of beans as her top choice, writing, "Sweet ketchup flavor delicious! I would put it on all of my burgers."

Beans on burgers? To each their own, I guess.


Iowa Loose Meat Sandwich

We LOVE the 50 nifty United States of this awesome country and believe each state is special. Every Monday we feature a sandwich unique to its state as part of our “50 Sandwiches, 50 States, 50 Weeks” series beginning with Alabama and ending with Wyoming.

Remember the Roseanne sitcom when Roseanne and Jackie opened a restaurant, The Lunch Box, and featured a loose meat sandwich as their specialty? Oh, you don’t? That’s ok. You’re up to speed now. I honestly never thought the loose meat sandwich was real. I’m not sure why, but maybe because the name seems so generic, and, well, unappetizing. Would you like some loose meat? Eh? I’ll pass.

But since we started spotlighting a sandwich from each state in alphabetical order, we would eventually make it to Iowa. It was then I was faced, yet again, with the words loose meat. But I’m older now, more open minded and sort of intrigued about loose meat. The loose meat sandwich, aka a Tavern sandwich, aka a loose hamburger, aka a sloppy joe without the slop is real and it’s pretty popular in one of our great states so it must be yummy good, right?

As I nosed around Google, I learned the sandwich was popularized by a restaurant chain called Maid-Rite in the 1920’s. In fact, if you want a “Maid-Rite” the locals know you’re referring to their loose meat sandwich. Originally, the loose meat, Maid-Rite sandwich consisted of unseasoned ground beef sauteed with minced onions served on a hamburger bun with pickles and mustard. Bleck! It baffles me how unseasoned ground meat gained such popularity- the beef must have been prime.

Today the Maid-Rite sandwiches are seasoned and you can even get them with cheese. Yet a Maid Rite restaurant known as Taylor’s in Marshalltown still makes their loose meat the old fashioned way- unseasoned- and is said to have the best loose meat sandwich of the Maid-Rite chain. Sticking to my ground beef-without-seasonings-is-bleck-belief our version has seasonings, and some pretty dang good seasoning I must say! Gary made this easy sandwich in no time and it was fantastic! I gobbled mine up and am now and forever a lover of the loose meat sandwich.


50 States of Hot Dog Toppings

America&mdashland of the free and home of the hot dog. Sure, the ballpark franks we love may have originated in Germany, but they've been perfected in the good ol' U.S. of A. We rounded up toppings to represent each of the 50 states, and it's a veritable quilt of hot dog awesomeness.

Boiled peanuts add some Southern sass and crunch, so pile them on and take a bite. A smear of peanut butter will also do the trick.

In Alaska they eat hot dogs differently: The dogs are made from caribou. The solution for those of us not rugged enough to make it up north? Caramelized onions deglazed with Coca-Cola&mdashit's the must-have caribou dog topping and it doesn't require a plane ticket.

Arizona natives are lucky: The weather is great and tamales are abundant. Stuff yours with an all-beef frank, slice it long-ways, and add some peppers down the center.

Cheese dip: It's a wonderful thing. The Arkansas version is a spicy (non-nacho, non-traditional) dip that begs to be eaten with a hot dog. Serve it on the side: Dipping your dog is part of the fun.

California is a long state with many distant hot dog identities but one things for sure: The dog must be bacon-wrapped. Cali bonus points for sliced avocado.

Colorado was made for green chili&mdashthe pepper grows like crazy in the Colorado climate and, it goes on everything. Even hot dogs. Especially hot dogs.

White Clam Pizza is a Connecticut mainstay, so try this hot dog version: Put a hot dog in a bun, dust it with parmesan, and dot it with little neck clams&mdashthen broil until the clams are cooked and the cheese is melted. Then top with slices of fried garlic and a serious sprinkling of oregano.

If you have ever gone to a Delaware beach, you know that vinegar fries are a necessity. Our replacement? A handful of crushed salt and vinegar chips&mdasha much more reasonable alternative than a trip to the state.

A lot of Floridians love the mayo-only hot dog, but we chose to spice things up with a healthy dose of mango salsa.

Georgia peaches are so good this time of year, you'll need to thoroughly cover your hot dog with a pile of these southern beauties. The salty-sweet combination is surprisingly tasty.

Sliced Spam and chopped pineapples live together happily ever after in this Hawaiian hot dog. Aloha.

Idaho is known for its spud power, which is why any self-respecting Idahoan will jump at the chance to top a dog with fluffy, mashed potatoes.

Don't even think about getting ketchup near this Chicago beauty. It's layered with fresh sliced tomatoes, quartered pickles, yellow mustard, chopped onions, bright-green relish, sport peppers, and a sprinkle of celery salt. *swoon*

Indiana is known for corn, so a corn dog is only fitting. And also awesome.

We chose a topping that reflects the long history of farming in this great state: Succotash. Ours is a corn-and-lima-bean mix with a kick of peppers, just for fun.

Popcorn lovers, rejoice&mdashyou can, and should, be putting popcorn on hot dogs. It's the perfect balance of light, salty, and crunchy.

Hot Browns are a true Kentucky sandwich, so we turned it into a dog by oven-baking a bacon-wrapped hot dog. Make a Mornay sauce as the dog cools. Line a bun with sliced turkey, place your hot dog on top, cover in Mornay sauce and broil until the sauce is bubbly and begins to brown. Eat with great relish (the feeling&mdashnot the condiment).

We all know about the legendary food scene in New Orleans: The crawfish, beignets, muffalettas, gumbo, and étouffée. But there is one Louisiana staple that really seems like it was made for hot dogs: Red Gravy. Trust.

Why eat a hot dog when you could eat a lobster roll? Because the two are even better together. A lobster salad&ndashtopped hot dog is pure heaven.

Like the aforementioned lobster&ndashhot dog roll, the crab meat&ndashcovered dog from Maryland is surf-and-turf happiness. The more crab the better&mdashwe like it served with crab cakes on the side.

Boston baked beans&mdashsmoky, and slightly sweet from molasses&mdashwere made to be a hot dog topping. Period, end of story.

This dog presides over all other Midwestern hot dogs with great style and class. It's the strangely named Coney Dog&mdasha Detroit staple topped with meat-sauce (read: chili, no beans), chopped onions, and ample yellow mustard. The world will be forever indebted to you, Detroit.

Some from Minnesota might say that it can't be Minnesota dog if it's a dog at all&mdashapparently it should be a brat. Frankly we don't really care, as long as it is smothered in sweet relish.

Pimento cheese can be found all over the country: It's at once a dip, a sauce, and melty cheese. But nowhere does this multi-tasker shine like it does as a hot dog topping.

Kansas City, Missouri, is known for a hot dog draped in melted Swiss cheese, a pile of sauerkraut, and thick ribbon of brown mustard. Extra credit: Use pork sausage and a sesame seed bun.

A polarizing choice, to say the least. But no one does Rocky Mountain Oysters like Montana&mdashthey deserve their rightful place on this dog.

Sometimes it's what is on the outside that counts. The bready pocket that surrounds these hot dogs pays homage to the state's Eastern European heritage. To make these, simply wrap the dogs up in store-bought pizza dough and bake at 350 degrees F for about 20 minutes (until the dough and dog are cooked).

Nevada&mdashknown for Las Vegas and, well, Las Vegas&mdashhappens to be one of the country's big pine nut producers. Their rich, buttery flavor goes great with hot dogs.

Poutine is a loaded food and those who love it have strong opinions about it. This New Hampshire dog, inspired by the states French-Canadian history, comes together with fries, brown gravy, and loads of your favorite cheese.

A lesser known New Jersey staple is the Italian hot dog: A dog cooked in oil served on a roll or in Italian bread with potatoes, onions, and bell peppers. Simply cook your cubed potatoes until tender then mix with cubed peppers and onions and eat with a napkin at the ready.
