July is National Hot Dog Month . . .
According to the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council an estimated seven billion hot dogs will be eaten by Americans between Memorial Day and Labor Day and during the 4th of July weekend alone 155 million will be enjoyed.
Did you know that every year Americans eat an average of 60 hot dogs each?
Council research shows that mustard is the condiment of choice for adults, while children prefer ketchup.
Preferences change from region to region . . . hot dogs in New York are generally served with a lighter mustard and steamed onions . . . Chicago hot dogs can come with mustard, relish, onions, tomato slices, or pretty much anything at all . . . I prefer mine topped with cole slaw.
