Why is there no ketchup on a properly made hot dog?
Wowsers! Ketchup isn’t good enough to be a standard part of a sandwich consisting of a tube of various bits and pieces of animal parts that we normally wouldn’t even consider eating?
I hadn’t eaten a hotdog in 2 decades, until my first child came along. When in rome…
But I tell you, if it weren’t for Ketchup there is simply no WAY I could eat the things. (This coming from someone that thoroughly enjoys ‘tasting’ food, all kinds of it. I’m not one to mask what I eat myself, normally)
Personally, I believe the masking power of Ketchup is the only suitable detractant for the heavy load of nitrates that come along with a lovely ole tubesteak.
But hey, if some people want to continue to believe there is anything even remotely gourmet about said afformentioned food attrocity, all the power to them.
