I think it's a Chicago thing.

Does anyone else cut their hot dogs down the middle and fry them? We do this, and the only other person I've seen do this outside of Chicago was a woman in Texas...who I later found out grew up in Chicago.
Anyway, I was thinking about it because that's what we're having for lunch. It's our "po' folks meal" when I'm running low on funds.

I don't eat hot dogs, but I make them for the kids the same way my parents made them when I was growing up, in the microwave. Now if it's something else like some kind of sausage dog thing, I pan fry those, but don't cut them.

We're actually having hot dog sausage things for dinner tonight. Well the kids, and stbx if he's here, are. I don't know what I'll have.

I'm a cali girl, too! Haha I don't eat/buy hot dogs, but I do buy sausages like andouille, italian, and hot links. When I pan fry those, if I do it whole I slice mine down the middle, too. When I put it in the bun, I like to put cheese and stuff in the middle of the sausage where I've sliced it... Sooooooo good!
