It's National Hot Dog Day today and what's more American than hot dogs?  It turns out that Americans trend dress up their hot dogs with a variety of toppings based on the region where they live.  According to a Harris poll conducted on behalf of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC), mustard is the all-american favorite topping but those that live in the South tend to enjoy chili, cheese, and coleslaw on their hot dogs.  Meanwhile, North-easterners like sauerkraut, Westerners like a kick with jalapenos, while Mid-westerners tend to be conservative with just ketchup.

Personally, I like to mix it up toppings.  I like almost anything except sauerkraut and my feeling is that the more toppings on a hot dog the better!
