Frankfurter Recipe: The Seattle Dog

So for the next stop on our Frankiocity tour, we look right in our own back yard. The Seattle Dog. Something newer on the map, but oh so indulgent. We made ours with vegan cream cheese and Nacho sliced Jalapenos, with freshly grilled sweet onions made by our very own FR chef Stephen Holtz. You can find this style of dog at many of the carts in Seattle...sans vegan cream cheese. Just don't ask Steve to eat one, he isn't interested. Oh well as we said before, you can't please everyone.

On another note...We have been busy as dogs at Field Roast...and frankly, we seem to have made some progress with placements of the new Frankfurter! Funny enough Florida and Colorado are in the lead in regards to number of stores. Shout out to Fort Collins for the business! Thanks!

There are still a couple months before summer is over (didn't it just start?) and Labor Day is the hopeful weekend that the grills everywhere will be sizzling with Field Roast Franks. We know that many of you have gotten to try them, and the response has been awesome! We thank everyone who has taken the time to send a note via email or Facebook, and ask that you keep it coming!

What a Field Roast Frank is made of...

Frankfurter Recipe: Chili Dog

When it comes to food, there are a thousand ways to...rescue a cat. Take pizza for example, no one topping scenario seems to please everyone...and so they invented the half this, half that pie. Well Hot Dog culture is the same way...if not worse. You've got a seriously varied scope of preferences when it comes to dressing a frank, and in the coming weeks we will be exploring this phenom.

So the question is, what is your Frank wearing? Or as David put it "your inner Frankiosity." This first installment is something I think most of us can get behind; The Chili Dog.

Now that isn't to say that there are not different schools of thought on the chili dog, in fact its quite possible this is one dog that isn't the same wherever you go. This recipe is close enough to the Cinncinati "cheese Coney" according to the omniscient Wiki. But doesn't really get into the different styles of chili...that is a whole other food fight altogether.

We kept it really simple;
a can of Chili sans carne
vegan cheese shreds
chopped white onions (If you are on a date...skip the onions)

But either way, you're going to need a fork!

Introducing Our New Frankfurter!

We are excited to introduce our version of a great summertime treat, the Frankfurter – an all-American classic that will look and taste right at home at the ballpark and backyard barbecues this summer.  We  will be rolling out nationally throughout the summer of 2011.

As with all of Field Roast’s artisan foods, the Frankfurter is made in small batches with fresh, natural ingredients like garlic and onion.  Its traditional seasonings lend a bold flavor, and like our sausages, it begs to be grilled.

For those of you living in the Seattle area, our Frankfurter has landed a spot on menus at Safeco Field!  Order a “veggie dog” on the 300 level or in “The Natural” section behind home plate to enjoy Field Roast while watching the Mariner’s.

Check back often for recipes as we explore the many ways to enjoy the Frankfurter from Chicago-style to Seattle’s signature cream cheese hot dog.
