How was the hotdog and corndog invented?
Hot dogs are a steamed sausage, similar to a frankfurter, or wiener that is grilled or steamed, slathered with condiments like ketchup, pickles and or mustard. It dates back to the 9thcentury but is well recognized to have originated in Germany but the modern version that we know today was made from the United States. These were then called ‘red hots’ because of its bright red color. Even as it got popular in the United States, a Jewish immigrant names Nathan Handwerker from Poland was the person that popularized the dish as he lived working in a hot dog stand at Coney Island and succeeded to compete with other food stands.
Though nowadays there is a fine line of distinction of a hot dog and a sausage. Hot dogs were then seen as a ‘working class street food’ available at stands and pushcarts easily seen at baseball or ball games in American culture. The hot dogs are usually paired with a long white bread that perfectly fits the hot dog. Before the buns were invented, white gloves were used to hold on to the hot dogs to avoid from putting grease or getting scalded. And thus started making bread to contain the hot dogs. For other the start of the hot dogs on a bun was made by Charles Feltman who wanted to sell his sandwiches with something different to compare with other sandwich stands, and decided to try adding hot dogs or frankfurters because of it’s popularity.
But aside the Hot dogs on a bun, Corndogs are also a well-known street food, which is essentially a deep fried snack made with sausages or hotdogs, battered with dough and sometimes breadcrumbs, fried to a crispy golden hue. Corndogs originated in the 1920’s introduced by German Texans in the United States. They were then added with sticks to make it more convenience and became once of the first fried food on a stick which were popular at the time as it could be eaten in a cleaner way. These days’ corndogs are made with other ingredients like cheese, bacon or even vegetarian to suit the taste of each individual.
