The weirdest regional hot dog styles across the country

Hot dogs seem like a pretty simple meal. Either put some on the grill or into a pot of boiling water for a few minutes, throw them in a bun, and then add ketchup or mustard and maybe some relish.

If it’s a special occasion (or, you just feel like doing it), you can also add some chili and/or cheese.

Since hot dogs are synonymous with baseball, MLB.com compiled a list of the most notable hot dogs for each region of the country.

Like most popular dishes in America, however, hot dogs are served in a wide variety of ways across the country. But while some areas simply like to wrap their dogs in bacon or top them with sauerkraut, other regions get a little crazier.

Since hot dogs are synonymous with baseball, MLB.com compiled a list of the most notable hot dogs for each region of the country. Most are simply hot dogs with a regional topping and/or bun, but here are some that are truly unique (and even a little weird).

For example, in Chicago, there’s the “Francheezie,” a hot dog stuffed with cheese, wrapped in bacon and then deep-fried before being served up on a poppy seed roll. (Of course, the Chicago Dog is still a city-wide favorite, but everyone knows about that.)

Meanwhile, in Georgia, you can enjoy a Scrambled Dog, which is a hot dog cut into pieces and served on a plate with chili, pickles, oyster crackers and coleslaw.
