    A picky eater who knows what is good.

    I did suggest truly magical alternatives. :)

    An under utilized cheese - cream cheese. Works so well on many a sammich.

    ~~~~~~

    "American" pasteurized cheese is an abomination. Embalmed cheese. The microbial life drained out of it.

    It was originally a British style cheddar, then the scientists at the budding Kraft Foods around 1920 or so had their hands in it. Velveeta and Cheez Whiz followed. Like Mars, no living organisms.

    A really good natural American originated Colby / cheddar derived cheese is Monterey Jack. Pepper Jack is SO good!

    Pretty much on board with all condiments but my current fave is whole seed mustard. I can hit the sauerkraut pretty hard on sausages or hot dogs too.

    Agreed. There are times it is the only decent alternative.

    People get strangely emotionally invested in the "no ketchup on a hot dog" thing. They're perfectly fine with whatever's in a hot dog, pulled out of a tub of hot grey water, but ketchup is where they draw the line? Hmmmm

    I'll throw whatever you've got on a hot dog. My favorite is a Chicago dog, which basically dumps an entire salad bar on a hot dog. Yeah, baby.

    All of these should be replaced by mayonnaise and cheese for dogs and burgers.
    Pickles should not exist, they are what’s wrong in the world

    Always works well. The alternatives I suggested do well too.

    I am intrigued by the Canadian tradition of gravy and / or cheese curds. Not a common restaurant find in my region.

    Ahyup.

    You are doing it wrong…

    Mayo is satan’s ejaculate.

    Cheese that has not been embalmed works everywhere.

    I don't mind mayo in fact I enjoy it on some burgers, not hot dogs - but ketchup?? :eek:

    You may as well pour a few spoonful's of sugar on your food.

    Nope, mayo (mixed with the ketchup) on the top bun and mustard in the bottom one, with lettuce, tomato and onion (and cheese). Bacon, avocado or jalapenos if we're getting fancy. And I'll hold onto my passport, thank you very much. No pickles - yuck!

    For hot dogs - mustard and minced onion is all I really need. But it's got to be a good dog, like Nathan's.
