Catching up on the new season of Top Chef I realized I had a post I never finished from Rochester–white hot dogs. Growing up we were a Zweigle’s family and nearly always had a combo pack of red and white hot dogs in the fridge. It wasn’t until I moved to Boston to attend college that I (sadly) realized that white hot dogs are not widely availble, or even known, throughout most of the country.
The white hot dog, a combination of pork, beef and veal, has a mild flavor close to that of a bratwurst, but with the soft texture of a hot dog. Other producers of this variety include Hofmann out of Syracuse and Wegman’s store brand.
Upstate NY food bloggers–perhaps we can have a meetup this summer when I’m back home. Thinking we could do a littl hot dog cooking and sampling, as well as a few trips to some of the many diners that dot the landscape between Albany and Buffalo.
