      My preference is hamburger, but I also love a  good Kosher hot dog as well or a chili dog also.

      I’m definitely a Hotdog girl!
      boiled Hebrew National dog, a steamed poppy seed bun, mustard, sweet relish, onion, tomato, & celery salt. NO KETCHUP EVER!!! Putting ketchup on a hotdog in Chicago can get you killed!
      (OK, maybe just people pointing, staring & saying rude things to you!).

        Poppy seed bun!  Oh yes please. I love them. The Polish shops here in the UK produce amazingly good ones.  One could even get them in Morrissons, sometimes, in the small  Polish baking section.  You can buy the seeds on the herbs and spices stalls at the market too.   I keep meaning to  get some and make my own buns.

        I usually use sesame seed buns with my burgers, but I will try poppy seed buns if I can get some.

        They are tasty and sweet and make you feel good for some reason.

            I reckon this post is as long as Rei’s ! Ooer!

            You mean ….  Quorn or soy mush lubricated with palm-oil,  adulterated –  flavoured with chemicals and made to resemble a “burger”, with Sheese! (whatever that is)  and squished in a bun, with claggy lettuce and watery tomatoes?

            Or…

            Minced 24 days matured Rib-eye, red and raw. Cooked JUST medium-rare so the juices drip off your chin onto your top, as you crunch thru the sweet crispy onions, cuddling your tongue with  deliciously rich mature cheddar, and exciting the taste buds with dill-pickled gherkins and capers, maybe teased with a hint of jalapeno and unspoilt by claggy lettuce and watery tomatoes?

            Decision. Decisions.  It’s hard…. so much going for both of them.

            Guess which option I have gone for.

            I used to be called under developed!!  Thanks for the compliment!

            As Oscar would have said:-  “There is only one thing worse than being over developed, and that is NOT being over developed.”

            Its odd… the male part of me -“Him” – has no real sense of humour, he is a morose bugger most of the time…  but me? I just can’t resist having fun. As I am closeted 90% of the time at the moment, this is the only way I can get out into the world, if only virtually. It is wonderfully liberating. Honestly.. I didn’t know I had a sense of humour until I joined CDH and released myself.  Now, my dear friends are like a catalyst and the nonsense just pours out.  Its how I  cope and stay sane.

            I must be sane because insane people don’t know they are insane.

            That’s really interesting Steph, the difference between your male and female persona. I’m certainly finding that being on CDH and commenting on some of the threads brings out the HildaRuth far more than just sitting and daydreaming about her. Jennifer who lives in the USA was the gal who recommended CDH to me and I really can’t thank her enough. I see that you are in Hertfordshire so we are both on this side of the Atlantic along with Inga.

        How about an 18″ long one?  Yeah…. you can!  They seem to attract a lot of admiring glances from bystanders and lots of  side-long glances and titters from the girls.

          Footlong hotdogs are truly delish.  And there is soooooooo much room for even more bits of a lot of everything on top.  Just bring a fork though, they are hard to pick up.

      Well I guess just 49 of us might not be a representative sample and we did self select to answer. Even so 20% hotdog to 80% burgers (rounding up) is pretty convincing that most of us CDers prefer burgers. Am I the only one thinking that this might be a ‘Freudian’ thing?

          Herr Freud, being an Austrian geezer, would have loved a bit of  sausage.  I’m guessing he was a bratwurst man mit senf,  fries and sauerkraut.  And an occasional Frankfarter   Frankfurter eater. Or Bockwurster.

      Burger all the way.

      I am rather simplistic, so my fave go to fast food burger is the big mac.  Love it.  If we order from the self serve kiosk, I always get extra lettuce, onions, pickles and sauce.  It gets messy and droopy, but wouldn’t want it any other way.

      If home made (yeah I am lazy, instead of buying ground beef and mashing into patties I buy the pre made stuff), toppings include either ketchup or bbq sauce, onions, lettuce/tomato, cheese, and if we have any bacon.

      I toast the buns using mayo, so it crisps up really nice.

      Miss Grace…

      Isn’t it ‘beefburger‘ in the UK… Have been to England a few times (Mum and Dad are from just outside Manchester).

      One time at a Pub in England (had to sit outside as I was too young (15 y/o) to go in the establishment at the time) I ordered a ‘Hamburger’. What I got was as ‘ham’ sandwich. When I asked why the waitress brought me a ham sammy and not a hamburger… she replied… if you want ‘beef’ you have to ask for a ‘beefburger’… 🤷🏼‍♀️  Wonder what they would serve if someone wanted a hot ‘dog’… 😱

      As per your question… I like both, but Hamburger is #1. With cheese and a slice of onion… Yum!!!

      Gen… ❤

      Polynesian burgers for us, Good ground beef mixed with chopped onion and green pepper, pineapple tidbits and teriyaki seasoning, then grilled. So juicy you don’t need ketchup or mayo or anything else unless you wish. Top with lettuce and tomato if desired.

      Really, back to food are we?  Lol, okay.

      Hamburger all the way for this girl, and dont cheap out on the bacon or cheese either!   The terms “tofu”, “veggie”, or “meatless” do not exist in my hamburger vocabulary. 😁

        Dear cutie, you forgot “vegan.”  Sheese!

        I really wish vegans wouldn’t call the veg they eat “bacon”  and “cheese” or even “burger”, which is short for hamburger and is a meat product. Bacon is salt-cured pork.  I don’t understand why vegans use meat based descriptions for the salads they eat when they are 100% against eating , drinking or wearing anything from Phylum Animalia. Its illogical to name vegan food after meat products. I’ve seen vegan “burgers” – round flat things – patties? –  made to look like beef burgers – red and juicy!   Why?

        No offense meant, everyone is free to eat whatever they prefer. I’m not judging.  Just confused.

          Hi there, Stephanie – really lovely smile you have, by the way.  While I can see that it’s perhaps illogical to describe Vegan (and lacto-ovo vegetarian) products with meat style names, people need a point of reference so they can understand the style of what it is they are buying.  “Low Sodium Myco Protein Block” may well become the new style of address when we become the majority and start making the rules (it’s coming and coming soon!  Vive La Revolution!) and at that time you won’t be ordering a Hot Dog but a Non-Vegetarian High Fat Offal Tube.  Incidentally, there was a case in the European court a couple of months ago where some major meat industry backers tried to have the term “burger” ruled to only relate to meat, suggesting that vegetarian versions should be called “disks”; it was thrown out in short time.  People know what “burger” means now – and accept that it doesn’t have to relate to meat.  Incidentally, the term “burger” does indeed relate to “Hamburger”; originally that meant a product made in the style prevalent in Hamburg (which just happened to be a flat disc.)  “Frankfurter” has a similar etymology, having been derived around Frankfurt.  Here endeth the lesson – and I’ll just say that I really love your smile; yes, I know I’ve said that twice, but it’s so lovely it deserves a lot of praise…  Hugs & kisses; Inga.

            Thank you for your kind words about my smile!

            I am intrigued by your words :-

            “When we become the majority and start making the rules (it’s coming and coming soon! Vive la revolution.)”

            For now WE are the majority by a big margin, but we don’t make any rules about what people can or should eat. It is down to individuals choice.   So why do you feel it desirable to make rules that take away that personal freedom?

            We will never agree on the choice of words for a food choice, I fear, because I do not see the logic of associating meat with non-meat foodstuffs.  Bacon highlights this issue as it is clearly defined as salt-cured Pork, so surely another name for strips of soya, or whatever,  bathed in liquid smoke (which is carcinogenic and stimulates gene p53), and goodness knows what else,  is one product that should not have the name “bacon” included in it.

            Veganism is a lifestyle choice that is practiced by a minority of people with enough disposable income and access to the worlds bountiful supply of foodstuffs, but the vast majority of people on this planet are not so fortunate, and have to live by whatever means they can.  Many are vegetarians out of necessity and some by choice. If you live near the arctic circle, or in desert and arid regions, or in the mountains, a purely vegan or vegetarian diet is very difficult to live by.   Climate change may well exacerbate this problem, and your dream of a vegetarian utopia may well be impossible to achieve. The stripping of the Amazon rainforest to grow soya and palm-oil may be its nemesis.

            I wish you luck with it.  (smile) Sermon over!

            When push comes to shove, and survival is at stake, people will eat whatever they can get their teeth into.  Lifestyle choice is not relevant when you are starving to death.

            Now, I’m off to have my Non-vegetarian High Fat Offal Tubes ,with spuds and onion gravy for my supper!

            Hugs, Steph

            p.s.  I am an omnivore and I do sometimes choose to eat vegetarian food – and very good most of it is too.  I do love a Tarka Dhall, and vegetarian Borsch.  And even vegetarian Haggis! (Sshh – don’t tell Grace.)

            Oh I do agree Stephanie, 😀here we are back to labels “Miss lovely smile” another label.😀 I think the patties should be labeled vegan patties, or vegan rolls, not burgers or sausages.😀 If your vegan fair enough but get your own labels.😀 See its back to labels, every where you go labels. 😀

            Just pointing out that it takes 10 lbs of vegetable protein to grown 1 lb of an animal – that you then have to kill (booo!)  Why not just feed the veggie protein to everyone first?  Not a subject we are ever going to agree on – so I’ll just leave with one where we can;  really, really love your smile……  Hugs & kisses; Inga Vegetarian.

            Inga dear,  If we all lived on Brussel Sprouts the resulting methane will kill the planet much quicker than a few farting cows.  Besides we need the manure to grow the Sprouts in. Paradox.

            Shall we agree to leave it here? Us girls mustn’t fall out, must we?

            I’m sure you never produce any methane!  And while I’m totally sure the science is on my side, I agree we should leave it.  I’m never going to fall out with you – how could I do anything that may cause harm to that smile?  Love you loads:  Inga.

            So good to know that you two gals will not be falling out. An interesting development that should satisfy both of your consciences is the development of synthetic meat grown from stem cells. Once the biotech manage to produce meat that has the taste, texture and odour of meal that will be able to mass produce without ever harming a single animal; check out https://www.chemistryworld.com/news/lab-grown-meat-receives-its-first-regulatory-approval-in-singapore/4012849.article
            Love and hugs to you both, I have so enjoyed your conversation.

            I am not convinced that biotech will ever produce synthetic meat tasting or smelling of natural meat.  The biochemistry behind flavour and odour is extremely complex, and will prove difficult to reproduce at an industrial  level in a plant turning the stuff out in large quantities, without using chemicals and artificial flavourings. Vegetarians have tried with limited success. Ever tried a veggie sausage? No resemblance -at all- to a good Cumberland sausage from free-range piggies.

            They will try of course, but to economically produce good juicy rib-eye steaks marbled with fat (mouth watering)  is a big ask.  Just joking.

            No – it will be unstructured mush cubes without muscle fibre to give it texture.   It will never have eaten grass and  absorbed hundreds of different elements and vitamins from it, or produced vitamin D from sunlight.

            It might be a valuable food to the worlds undernourished or starving people, but you will never convince us in the rich countries to swap our rib-eyes for it.

            I’m sure that some biotech produced meat substitutes will be as you say but there is serious big money being invested in identifying and commercialising the production of synthetic meat with the taste, texture, smell and cooking qualities of ‘genuine meat”. I know it all seems a bit ‘Star Trek’ but as William Gibson wrote, “The fut`ure is already with us; it’s just not evenly distributed.”
            I wonder whether there is a poll in this and similar related food issues – GM foods, Synthetic Foods, Why we eat what we eat? ‘Wadya think?

            Hi, Hilda; this one is an (almost) entirely new subject – and not one that would be any less controversial, hence I hope most of the ladies out there decide to just read my note and let it drop there!  Suffice to say that I (and, I would suspect, 90%+ of vegetarians) will not be having anything to do with artificially grown meat; I doubt anyone would need to ask for reasons why.  Now, it’s breakfast time over here; a small bowl of fruit, seeds and the like, plus a few splashes of skimmed milk… yes, I still need to drop a few more pounds before I can squeeze into that mini skirt that’s been sitting at the back of my cupboard for a year now……  Hugs:  Inga.

            I agree with you Inga about veggies not touching it with a bargepole. I won’t be having anything to do with it either. Yuk!

            It will most likely be artificial tasting  mush cubes laced with marmite or other “umami” stuff,  and bear no resemblance to a good rib-eye steak marbled with delicious tasty fat.  I suppose they will press it into burgers and stuff it into cellulose sausage skins and try to convince us it is as good as the real thing.

            Now where have I heard that argument before?

            Hugs, Stephanie 💖

            Stephanie:  I really loved this one!  (Well, until you mentioned “rib eye steak” but we’ll leave that one there.)  You mentioned Marmite; you and I obviously know about this and does this sound like a poll in the making?  (I’m sure the lovely Grace could come up with a way of spicing the poll up a bit.)  The question , however, is do our sisters on the wrong side of the pond know about Marmite?  Have they ever known the delight of a slice of wholemeal toast smeared with liquid heaven?  (I’m going to assume you probably stand on the other side of the debate, but as the adverts say, Love or Hate – there isn’t a middle ground!)  All I can say is – keep smiling!  (Ugghhh…  I’m getting a bit boring on that subject, aren’t I?)  Loads of kisses:  Inga.

            Don’t jump to conclusions.

            I’m betting you haven’t tried “liquid heaven” by the spoonful.

            I have, as part of a beer-fuelled eating contest at 3:00 a.m involving … yes.. marmite … and pickled onions and vinegar, jam, beans and other stuff.  I can tell you that the smell is excreted from your skins pores for several days afterwards, and you get funny looks from dogs!   I went off the stuff for several years.

            I don’t mind it now as I have a savoury palate, preferably smeared onto crispbread. (No, not the palate, the marmite!)  And how about a mug of Oxo cube dissolved in boiling water and garnished with black pepper and a big dash of Worcester Sauce?  Now that is Liquid Heaven.

            You are never boring Inga!

            When I wasn’t trying to look after my girlish figure (ahem…) that was my usual dinner……  Oxo?  Their veggie version is superb!  Worcester Sauce?  NOOOO!!! Includes anchovies – and even you meat eaters seem to be very divided on that issue.  Liquid Heaven?  Orkney Brewery Red MacGregor:  I may be English, but – like you – class is class!  So; unless Grace can get in before me, I’ll do a poll on Marmite;  Love or Hate.. or would Marmite or Bovril be a better idea?  Dunno if the ladies over the pond would have any clue about either, but us girls from the mother country are bound to have an opinion!  Grace – let you put your inimitable stamp on it, but if not I’ll try a poll at 10 am tomorrow;  let the rest of the world gasp in awe at how awesome we are in these islands!  Big, big hugs:  Inga.

            The poll could always include a description of Bovril and Marmite and perhaps have images of the bottles they come in. The US equivalents might come under different but similar packaging maybe.

            Hi Inga
            Can’t say I agree with you about the position of vegetarians on synthetic meat (time will tell) but I do think there will be pressure to adopt more vegetarian based diets due to the impact of rearing meat on climate change hence many non-vegetarians will adopt it. Lots of venture capital being invested. But on to breakfast; yours sounds delicious and over here (not far from you I’m in Brighton) it’s muesli, seeds, grapes and blueberries with skimmed milk topped by low fat yoghurt and a sprinkling of nuts and dried fruit so we’re pretty much on the same page breakfast wise.
            Love and hugs

            Hey there, Hilda:  time will indeed tell – and the tragedy of climate change will inevitably play a big part (NO!  I don’t want to start a debate on that!  Surely, hasn’t that already been done in a larger forum?)  You’re quite right about venture capital – and isn’t it lovely to see the hedge funds taking a beating on the GameStop front?  If they would contribute half of their profits towards alleviating world hunger, I’d perhaps have a better view of them, but I doubt anyone expects that to happen…  Whatever;  breakfast was delicious, but dinner tonight is likely to just be a beautiful, gorgeous pot of “Sirenya pa Shopski” (yes, I could put it in Cyrillic, but no need to.  It’s a Bulgarian dish comprising baked cheese, tomatoes, onions, garlic, poached egg and a chilli pepper) plus a small portion of allotment grown veggies.  And as Stephanie does indeed eat vegetarian food, I’m sure she would be willing to give it a try – I’d love to cook some for her!  No huge portions – after all, that mini skirt in my cupboard isn’t suddenly going to get smaller!!!

            Anyway:  I’ll stop my rant and just point out how much I love you all:  big, big hugs.  Inga.

            Your dinner sounds delicious! And it will be interesting to see whether climate change along with the impact of AI/automation might lead capitalism to get a conscience. I’m not holding my breath but WTF by Tim O’Reilly does give a modicum of hope see https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wtf-Whats-Future-Why-Its/dp/0062699555/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=WTF+Tim+O%27Reilly&qid=1611932408&sr=8-1

          Good points Stephanie. The question is how many Vegans are actually true Vegans in the sense of the word.

          I have a tin hat and patties don’t hurt if thrown.

            It had to be said!  I’m fed up with being told that eating animals is wrong and bad  for the planet. Like 2poos I’ve got these teeth called incisors – they did not evolve to suck on lettuce, but to rip through a juicy steak.  Or a squirrel.

            I know one so-called vegetarian who wears real leather jackets and shoes. It’s okay to skin a cow but not okay to eat it!   Ever seen a cow without it’s jacket wandering around?

            And another who used to live on £8 a week on millet balls and lentils and such things, who succumbed to some fresh caught Lakeland Trout when were camping in Borrowdale.  I swear he had some of our 12 foot Cumberland sausage off the barbie too.

            (duck) – that patty just missed!!

            Well… actually, hominids started out as vegetarians.  Not going to go as far back as australopithecenes but once hominids began migrating from Africa, they only commenced feeding on carcasses they found in the road as a matter of convenience – it may have meant the diaspora proceeded at a slightly more accelerated rate, but we would have got there before long even if we hadn’t started eating animal parts.  Incisor teeth occur throughout the great apes – and you’ll never see a gorilla wolfing down a steak… well, apart from my ex-girlfriend…  Ahem; don’t be bitter, Inga.  And Amanda; true cannibalism by hominids is a rare thing;  among the simian world it’s true that Chimpanzees will not just eat monkeys that they come into contact with, but that they will hunt them – and tear them to pieces while alive – but that’s a recent character trait and not one that is completely inbuilt – they are more than happy with a plant based diet – no matter what the shape of their teeth.  Now, tearing monkeys apart is not a  behaviour that we go in for in the UK (well… maybe in Scotland…. SORRY Stephanie!  Just a joke!)  Rant over; I’m going to get back to browsing for a new dress and a sari; I just think they look so, so beautiful!  Hugs and kisses to you all:  Inga.

            Totally agree Stephanie, after all humans ate humans, although today obviously that not socially acceptable, well not in Dorset anyway. Didn’t go out lettuce bashing in the stone age did they. Probably never cooked the meat either. But hay ho do like a salad in the summer.

            Patties in coming.

            To be honest, this is all beyond me…I don’t want some bio tech lab invented stem cell produced tofu marinated fungi tasting piece of yuk….I just want a slice of meat off the a**e of a cow between two slices of bread…..with a slice of cheddar and some onion…….PLEASE!!!

            this approach usually gets me the desired meal!!!

      Two of my favorite foods since learning how to chew!  Hot dogs come in so many varieties, beef, pork, even chicken  or turkey and (shivering) vegan.  And the topping’s are just as varied.  From just mustard to a little bit of a lot of everything.   Easy to make, easy to carry, and way too easy to over indulge.   Truly a favorite meal from toddlers to centenarians.   But, that marvelous food is but my second choice on this list.

      The burger is my favorite.  Made from choice meats: Black Angus, American Buffalo, plain ground beef, or ground steak of any cut, and even Venison.  Coverd and slow simmered, open grilled over mesquite wood, or slow smoked.  On calm day, you can smell a good burger a mile away when the breeze is right.  And the choices of buns and cheeses is as varied as the meat.  Mustard, mayonnaise, or both.  Horseradish, hickory BBQ sauce, or even Cajun Bourbon sauce with sauteed mushrooms.  Pickle, crispy lettuce, onion, tomatoes, and even a layer of jalapeno peppers.

      A good burger is a work of art that just cannot be made exactly the same way twice.  Each is unique in its own flavor even with the same garnishment.

      IMHO, a vegan burger is just a salad between two pieces of bread.  But a well made burger… is just almost beyond even a Bill Shakespeare description.

          No need to wait for summer.  I will BBQ if it gets up to the mid forties F if I get a hunger for a good burger.  I have even BBQ’d in the snow on more than 1 occasion, just because I got hungry for a good burger.

      Living in SoCal, and having to choose between a burger or a dog, I’d take a burger.  In-N-Out.  Animal style.  For the uninitiated…that’s no bun…wrapped in lettuce. Yum!

      Now if we could expand things a bit… Being this is SoCal, a beer battered Baja style fish taco beats most burgers any day.  Anyone that visits from afar and doesn’t try one is missing out.  Ya gotta get it local.  Little hole in the wall places.  They’re not the same anywhere else.

      Expanding even further… When I lived in New York City, some of the best pizza I ever had came from the carts you’ll find on many street corners.  It was a lunch staple.

      As for hot dogs… There’s something cultural about having one at a Major League baseball game.  It’s the one place and time when I actually want one.  Loaded with spicy mustard and grilled onions, of course!

      Grace you feigned innocence in one of your other food polls.  I’m not convinced you aren’t trying to make us all fat!  I’d like my Kardashian booty to become LESS prominent!

      The choice was a sort of tough, I’d say it’s probably 60-40 hamburger to hotdog…at the most.  It does depend on what kind of meat is in both for me to choose one over the other.  I probably eat more hot dogs than hamburgers, just because they’re easier to prepare.  For a good hamburger, I really need to grill it, and that’s a little more effort than sticking a packaged hotdog in the microwave.  But a good brat, also grilled, with the right condiments can be very tasty.

      Don’t get me wrong I like dogs too but if I have to choose between the 2 I’m gonna take a burger.

      As far as toppings go I like them all. Although I don’t want cheese unless bacon is also involved and if bacon is joining the party you might as well throw the fried egg on there too. I mean if we’re trying to get our cholesterol numbers up we might as well do it right lol.

      I like my burgers drug through the garden. Lettuce,tomato, onion and pickles plus mayo and mustard. I used to also like ketchup on there but the older I get the less I like ketchup on my burger. I like it on certain fast food burgers but that’s really the only time I eat it on burgers any more.

      As for hot dogs I like a Chicago dog. They’re a style of hot dogs all their own and I love hot dogs this way. They’re kind of like a rueben sandwich though. It’s really hard to find a good one. If you like hot dogs I suggest trying a Chicago style hot dog. They’re delicious!

      Oh and Samantha I’ll join you for a gyro because I love ’em! I mean is there any more tasty Greek sandwich out there? I’ll be honest. I’ll take a gyro over a burger. Now I’m craving a gyro, some hummus, tabbouleh and tahini salad . And also a good hamburger lol.

      Thanks for a fun topic!

      Oh, darling…

      When I saw the topic I thought to myself…”this must be Grace”! And sure enough it was. You have a wonderful sense of humour that brings balance to a forum like ours!

      However, back to the subject… certainly a Hotdog. It’s one of those items no one can sod up. I have had, much to my chagrin, ‘things’ calling themselve Hamburgers but lacked any form of taste and were even vile to look at. A spectaclar disaster in Boston, Lincolnshire is the most memorable… imagine if you will a small square of greaseproof paper upon which lay a squishy something in batter, dripping awful smelling burnt fat… When asked what exactly it was, the chippie had the temerity to say “its an ‘amburger”. I asked where the bun was… “you’ll ‘ave to pay ‘xtra for tha'” was his response!

      Even MacDonald’s is way better than that!

      Saving the world’s taste buds one ‘otdog at a time Hugs xxx Polly

        There used to be (long ago)  a “Gasser” factory half way up the Brenner Pass on the Austrian side.

        Ghastly bright pink solidified slurry  “gasser” wurst encased in plastic casing, if I remember correctly. Didn’t stop us eating it though.

      Hi Grace,

      Good thing it’s almost dinner time.  How about a burger with sharp cheddar cheese and crispy bacon.

      Gyro….help????

      Hi Baroness Grace,

      A gyro is a Greek dish with shaved lamb  and beef mixed with spices, mayo, red onions and added to a pita or a on a submarine/hero split roll.  Chicken can be used too.  The meat is usually cooked on a rotisserie spit.

      Well in  my teenage years the local takeaway served Burgers with fried  Onions yummy. Then they progressed to Burgers with fried egg on top ( my favorite ). Then when in my apprentice years college served Battered Burgers very tasty but greasy. However Burger with a fried egg can’t be beaten. Unlike a lot of people I am cheese intolerant why ruin good food.

      They’re both fine, but can I get a gyro instead Grace?  That’s my true comfort food 😏

      Definitely hamburger because I think you can get a greater variety of ‘other’ ingredients – cheese, bacon, salt, relishes and they seem better accompanied by fries than hot dogs. And on the veggie front if I’m in the position of having to make myself a snack then sliced tomatoes, with sliced avocado and sliced mozzarella cheese drizzled over with a freshly prepared olive oil, balsamic vinegar, mustard and herb dressing really hits the spot.

      Actually I could go for either but if I have to choose then a hamburger. Lots of cheese, caramelized onions, a little bacon, dill pickle, a little mayo, mustard and ketchup. Doesn’t sound too ladylike does it?

      I love a five guys hamburger, but my Darlene persona is encouraging me to eat healthier and lose weight.  So for me I make a veggie scramble with broccli, bell peppers, onions, and a little italian sausage mixed in for breakfast, then mostly salads the rest of the day.  I’m getting close to a healthy BMI, when i get there I’ll splurge on a Five Guys Burger!

      As a vegetarian, it has to be a veggieburger – vegetarian hot dogs tend to be… well, let’s just say not that good.  Add a nice bit of salad and it starts my mouth watering… until I remember that I have to lose enough weight to get into that mini skirt I bought a year ago, and at that point I just decide on a glass of semi skimmed and the salad without the burger……  Hugs to you all:  Inga.

      Oh – and please see the options in the poll:  yet again, us vegetarians are ignored ……

      Growing up I loved hot dogs but have mostly switched to hamburgers. Give me a Five Guys burger (US chain) and fries and I’m a happy camper. The exception to this is when I attend a sporting event like baseball. I love a good hot dog, half some or bratwurst with good german mustard, sauerkraut or pepper/onions….and of course a beer.

        That’s almost what I was going to say. If I’m at the game, it has to be a dog, and inevitably beer (craft preferred), with chili, cheese, hot mustard, and peppers. I’ve never been to a ballpark where there was a good burger to be found, but there’s usually a decent dog.

        Otherwise, it’ll be a burger, preferably a double or triple, with cheese, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes if they’re fresh, and bacon, maybe chili, and good hot mustard (of whatever national or ethnic origin). Other than street vendors, not many places have a decent hot dog outside the ballpark.

        Having said all that, can I get a cheesesteak instead?

      I go for hotdog.  As it’s a sausage then any other type must be allowed? Grace?

      If Grace says  no then goto exit.

      I’m most definitely a sausageophile.

      I love a currywurst  – a bratwurst in a bun slathered with a special curry sauce.  But I also love bratwurst with fried onions and german mustard.   Or a bratwurst in a mixed grill, or on its own.      You can sometimes get them a foot long at Beer Festivals.

      Lets not forget a Polish sausage either – big hotdogs or wieska, or  silesian smoked sausage. They love their sausages do the Poles and Germans, and Austrians, and Russians…and others …..  and me. There are dozens of variations. I have even seen a donkey sausage in Italy.

      Now the French …they have disgusting tripe sausages (andouillette?)

      And us in the UK!  We love a sausage don’t we?  I love a Cumberland Ring or a long Cumberland. A friend bought a length on Keswick Market – it was about 12 feet long!   Sausage, mash and onion gravy – now your talking!

      Now (inevitably) we get to Scotland – (I hear the groans).  “A pun o’ hinging mince” is a pound of sausages!

      And now… Yes!   …… excitement builds…. You can get Haggis sausages!  Yeah you can! (cazoo?)

      Toss up between sausages?  Deep-fried battered haggis sausage is the one for me.

      Goto End.

      Exit

      sorry grace

      Hotdog then – preferably barbecued 🌭  But I do love  a burger too – with dill-pickled gherkins.

      End 

      Anything veggie or vegan you can stick where the Sun doesn’t shine.

      Stephanie P – guess what I’ve got for tea?   Yes!  It just so happens – Morrisons Bratwurst! with chips and baked beans. Lovely Jubbly!

        Steph….I lived in Cumbria for a while…I can confirm the Cumberland rings are not sheep rustlers…but are fantastic sausages….and they taste totally different if made locally

        but first Krista, now you, on about these foot long sausages/ hotdogs…. where have I been???

          Far aboot in Cumbria did ye bide?

          Enough… switch off  silly Scotbrain, switch on stoopid English one.  I know Cumbria quite well, where abouts did you stay?

          I believe Aldi sometimes has them.  And of course Beer festivals and many Farmers/Sunday markets these days – even in lock down (not the beerfests though. sob!)

            I know the Dog & Gun – I assume you tried their Goulash?  I make a version of it myself.

            What about the George Hotel?  That was our favourite pub.  Their “Cow pie” is legendary. Great thick slabs of meat and pastry.  They used to sell it in quarters or halves – it is impossible to eat a whole one unless you are Desperate Dan.   There used to be a good butcher just across the road (long gone) that sold smashing Cumberland sausage.  Our 12 footer came from there!

      Hi Grace, well when I was not as concerned over my girlish figure and used to support street food vendors, I usually went for the hot dog, sometimes even the foot long!!!!   Favourite toppings are onion, sauerkraut, relish, hot peppers with a wee bit of mustard.  I guess there was some sort of fake meat in there somewhere.  Back when I used to travel across North America for work, I made a tradition of going to see a major league baseball game and having a foot long hot dog.  And I compared hot dogs from the different venues.  Sorry Boston Red Sox, New York Yankee and Toronto Blue Jay fans, I think from my research , in my humble opinion the best foot long is in Denver Colorado followed by the foot long in Seattle.  Looking forward to getting back to going to the games.  Stay healthy, stay safe, Hugs, Krista.

        I used to live in Oakland, back in the money ball days with the pennant the years running. Last game I went to was in Baltimore, good food at that park. Haven’t been to a game in years now.
