Hotdogs, wieners or franks

Picked up some Foster Farms (I think it's a California based company) chicken hotdogs yesterday and must say they are delicious...much better than any chicken or turkey franks I've had in the past...not necessarily low fat or low cal, but really good. (100 kcals each with 80 from fat)

But it got me thinking...what do you call 'em; franks, red hots, hotdogs, wieners, or ??????? I know different areas call them by different names...in New York do they still call 'em Coney's?

And how do you eat them? Chili and cheese here although I don't have 'em often, I occasionally get the hankering for one...they were my husband's favorite food I sometimes think. He used to call 'em "round steak" but he was a child of the depression.

I mostly call them hot dogs, wieners, or sausages

My preference is the all beef variety either Nathans or Oscar Meyer.
I also like the polish or hot link sausages by Farmer John.

Being mostly LC I eat the sausages plain with a little mustard and maybe fried or grilled peppers on the side.

I also like to eat cold wieners as a snack.

now that's funny. round steak!

when I was a kid, sometimes our family would go to cookouts at friends' houses where the parents would be cheap and serve hot dogs to the kids calling them "round steak." I had forgotten that! they were pretty good with the crispy grill marks on them, from the perspective of a 6-yr-old at least! LOL

I'd forgotten "tube steaks" thanks for the reminder...I think it's funny (odd...not haha) the way some people eat them. I knew a gunny sergeant from Buffalo, N.Y. (I go his wife's recipe for Buffalo wings) who also had them grilled over the charcoal and would not only burn the heck out of 'em, would poke 'em with a fork to make sure all the juices were expelled. That tasted like charcoal to me, but he loved 'em that way.

When I have 'em at home I use Rachel Ray's way of cooking sausage to make sure they're heated through...add to a skillet, add a bit of EVOO and a spritz of water to steam them and let them brown. Like I say, I don't have 'em often but I' get a craving every once in a while.

My dh calls them "Ludwig", private joke..........

Mostly call them hot dogs, or wienee's, call the more expensive stuff sausage.

I like them grilled till they are almost black, but dh doesn't. He eats them with mustard, catsup and saurkraut, sometimes buns, sometimes not. I like them with just a bit of yellow mustard, and use a Sara Lee 45 cal. bread slice instead of a bun. Nice, simple meal though, and I notice more and more people buying them lately.

I call them hot dogs and eat them quite often. Last Sunday, I went over to my daughters and cooked dinner on the grill. We had hamburgers, hot dogs, pork chops and polska kiobaska. I love mine black but not burnt. I eat them with mayo and sliced fresh tomatoes. So good.

Hot dogs - like them best with chili topping of some kind, small dab of mustard & ketchup, and diced raw onion.... Like you, I'll have them once a year or so, usually over the July 4th weekend.

I can't eat them without them being boiled. They let off some of the fat and I just like the texture of the better when they have absorbed a little water. Not so 'chewy' is the term that comes to mind. We've done this in our family since I was a toddler, my mom did this so it would be easier for a baby to chew. Now I just like them this way.

I like them dressed with mustard, tomato relish, horseradish and diced onion.

Strangely, I think of hotdogs as the sausage in the bun, but just wiener or frank if eaten by itself...of course, as a kid we had "wienie roasts." cooking the sausage on a stick over an open fire...once my brother cut our spears from poison oak; boy, did he suffer. I felt so sorry for him but I escaped the poison completely...not immune, just didn't get it that time.

Love this thread.
We call them hot dogs or "tube steaks" and have them either with mustard,onions and relish or Chili sauce....no bun but sometimes on 1/4 of a lavash wrap.

Sabrett , Nathan's or Hoffman's hot dogs are our choice. AND Doris I like mine burnt black on the grill too.

We call them hotdogs. We try to cut down the salt by cooking in water to start then when almost done, grill, or brown in some way. Love them with sauerkraut or with mustard, and relish or chile sauce.

Sabretts, boy does that bring back some memories...those lovely little sidewalk stands in New York City...boy, they were soooooo good! Thanks for another memory. Of course, we don't have them out here on the left coast; we do have Nathan's in the market and at the casinos.
