Why I Love This Recipe

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!

Ingredients You'll Need

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.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

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.
