This Hot Dog Thing Will Never End

Today, Tyler Florence did a cooking “class” via Twitter on “The Ultimate Chili Dog.”  The full recipe and an image (of, let me say,  an impressively giant chili dog) are available on his blog.

He’s using all-beef hot dogs, which I applaud, altho I do prefer mine to be uncured, and his chili is full of goodness: olive oil, onion, ground beef, ketchup, chili powder, mustard, thyme, garlic.  He tops the whole thing off with a homemade coleslaw.  I’ve often wondered about the coleslaw topping thing.  I think Josh used to get dogs topped with coleslaw at Red Hot Lovers but it’s just never been my thing.  I’m not a huge fan of coleslaw and I prefer it to be a side item rather than a topping for my hot dogs, burgers and pulled pork sammiches.  But that’s just me.

Anyway, this fantastic little series of tweets (who says Twitter is totally useless?  Right, me) also featured a recipe for homemade potato salad, which you can find at the bottom of the chili dog post.

Enjoy!  Follow Tyler on Twitter or check back on TylerFlorence.com every Friday for more classes.

Tyler Florence is my hero

Tyler Florence, if you don’t know him, is a restauranteur and FoodNetwork chef extraordinaire.  He’s one of the few people still on FN that I love to watch–his recipes are great (I make quite a few of them, and none have disappointed) and he’s funny and very watchable to boot.

He’s also apparently on Twitter (yes, I’m a follower) and conducts a weekly cooking class via Twitter on Fridays.
