It's summer and time for a good old fashioned hot dog. Instead of your classic sausage on a bun type try one of these gourmet versions.5. A Polish Boy
This hot dog is serious business. It comes fully loaded with fries and slaw on top of the kielbasa sausage and all your fave toppings. Recipe: Michael Symon’s Polish Boy4.
A HOT Burger-Dog
This Asian-style, spicy hot dog is nothing like the original, but that’s not a bad thing. The hand-formed beef dogs are topped with a spicy, red pepper and onion relish that will leave your taste buds tingling for at least an hour.
Recipe: Ming Tsai’s Onion Burger 3. A Classic Chili Dog
Sometimes more is just better and this dish proves it. Chili, bacon and cheese on top of your favorite extra long hot dog in a potato bun – we dare you to have just one bite. Recipe: Michael Symon Chili Dog2. A Brat Burger
If Ming Tsai can make a burger into a hot dog than Michael Symon can make a Bratwurst into a burger. After blending that tasty brat meat with some ground beef, he added some of his secret shasha sauce, gruyere and a splash of beer to the mix.

Or, if you’re a purist, we’ve got that brat too. The German sausage cooked in beer and sandwiched in a pretzel roll is impossible to beat.
