Serves 1 serving | Prep Time 5 min | Cook Time 10 min


1 wiener
1 bun
1 teaspoon mustard
1 Tablespoon hot dog chili, heated in microwave
1 Tablespoon sweet creamy coleslaw 1 teaspoon chopped onions

Boil wiener until done. Remove dog, turn off water. Place strainer over the hot water, but not touching, put in bun & cover with towel,to steam until warm though out.

Place dog on warm bun.Add mustard, chili and top it off with coleslaw and onions and you have a symphony of taste that quite possibly is the reason that many transplanted West Virginians can never really be happy living anywhere else.

A true West Virginia hot dog is a heavenly creation that begins with a wiener on a bun. Different parts of West Virginia have variations on the theme but the common elements are sweet, creamy coleslaw and chili. Anything else is just not a true West Virginia hot dog!

My foster Mom is from West Virginia, and this is exactly the way she makes hers! But she adds onions. They are delicious, and the only way I will eat mine.
