National Chili Dog Day
Date When Celebrated : Last Thursday in July
Yes, you can have your hot dog and your chili... and eat it, too..... together, as today is National Chili Dog Day. We don't know who first came up with the idea to put hot dogs and chili together. But, we're sure glad they did, as they make a great combination.
Hot dogs are really a sausage of German origin. It has evolved over many decades. There are many types of hot dogs, including: ballpark, pop-open, skinless and "white" hots. White hots are very popular in the northeast, but little known in many other parts of the country.
Chili is very popular in colder months of the year. The big exception is when it is used as a condiment ,or topper, on hot dogs in a bun. The resulting chili dog is popular in the summer months.
If you've never tried the delicious summer sausage sandwich, National Chili Dog Day is the perfect day to give it a try. We believe you won't be disappointed!
Did You Know? Chili Con Carne first appeared on restaurant menus in the 1880's.
Happy National Chili Dog Day!!!
