Portland Dog

Portland Dog: Sauerkraut and Pickled Everything

OK, so maybe we took our inspiration from the TV show “Portlandia” more than the actual city, but the delicious, vinegary tang of sauerkraut and pickles next to the deep savor of hot dogs is no joke. Just don’t forget to put a bird on it.

Ingredients

Pickled Red Onions

Makes about 1 cup

Hot Dogs

Instructions

Pickled Red Onions

  1. Combine the onions, vinegar, and salt in a small bowl and stir until the salt is dissolved.
  2. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
  3. The pickled onions keep, tightly covered, up to 1 week in the refrigerator.

Hot Dogs

  1. Grill hot dogs to desired doneness; grill naan until softened and blackened in spots.
  2. Spoon some sauerkraut over each naan and arrange hot dogs over it.
  3. Top each hot dog with some pickled onions, as many pickles as each person likes, and 1 or 2 pickled jalapeños.
