Here's how to make the best hot dog toppings happen:
Old Bay Mayo: Stir 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice and 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning into 1/2 cup mayonnaise; adjust to taste.
Harissa Ketchup: Stir 1 tsp. harissa paste into 1/2 cup ketchup; adjust to taste.
Maple Mustard: Stir 1/4 cup maple syrup into 1/4 cup Dijon mustard; adjust to taste.
Chipotle BBQ Sauce: De-seed and mince 1 canned chipotle in adobo, stir into 1/2 cup barbecue sauce; adjust to taste.
Onions: Slice 2 red or yellow (or a mix of both) medium onions into thick rounds and grill until charred and soft.
Peppers: Quarter 2 peppers (a mix of bell and/or poblano) and remove seeds. Grill until charred and softened, then thinly slice.
Corn: Grill 2 husked ears of corn until charred, then slice kernels off.
Tomatoes: Thread 1 pint cherry tomatoes on skewers (or use a grill basket) and grill until charred and softened.
Make your own quick pickles—or just jazz up the store-bought kind.
Pickled Carrots: Shave 2 medium carrots into thin ribbons with a vegetable peeler and combine with 1/2 cup white wine vinegar, 1 tsp. kosher salt, and 1 tsp. toasted cumin seeds in a medium bowl. Let sit at least 10 minutes and strain before serving.
Pickled Cabbage: Place 1 cup thinly sliced purple cabbage in a large heatproof container or bowl. Toast 1 Tbsp. caraway seeds in a small pot over medium heat, then add 1 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 Tbsp. sugar, and 1 Tbsp. salt and bring to a boil. Pour over cabbage and let sit at least 10 minutes. Strain before serving.
Dill Pickle Relish: Combine 1 cup diced bread and butter pickles and 1/2 cup coarsely chopped fresh dill.
Scallion Kimchi: Combine 1/2 cup thinly sliced kimchi and 1/3 cup thinly sliced scallions.
Of course, you can mix and match these toppings any way you like. But here are the combos we couldn't stop eating in the Epi Test Kitchen.
"The German": For a bratwurst-inspired dog, layer on Maple Mustard, Pickled Cabbage, and Grilled Onions.
"The Sweet + Smoky": For a dog that hits all the spicy sweet and smoky spots of your favorite backyard barbecue, layer on Chipotle BBQ Sauce, Sweet Dill Pickle Relish, and Grilled Corn.
"The Garden Dog": Old Bay Mayo provides a creamy base for tart Pickled Carrots and smoky Grilled Peppers.
"The Fire Starter": If spice and brine are your beats, mix together Harissa Ketchup, Scallion Kimchi, and Grilled Peppers.
"The Southern Belle": For a combo that's even better than your favorite summer succotash, top your dog with Old Bay Mayo, Grilled Tomatoes, and Grilled Corn.
