Opinions on hotdog and hamburger condiments (Vanity)
FR ^ | 9/19/08 | Domandred

Posted on 09/19/2008 12:32:53 PM PDT by Domandred

My wife and I are having an argument. When she makes me a hamburger she insists on putting mayo on it. So we got into an argument over the proper condiments for hamburgers and hotdogs.

She insists on ketchup on her hotdogs. Mayo on her burgers. Mayo on hotdogs.

I believe ketchup has no business being on a dog (should be only some form of mustard) and hamburgers can get ketchup+mustard, but not mayo. Mayo is only for deli type sandwiches.

Opinions please.

I am not a theologian, but I believe putting ketchup on a hotdog is one of the seven deadly sins.

I agree with you mustard only on the dog and hamburgers get both mustard and ketchup.

I rarely have burgers, but when I do, mayo is a nice treat.

You are right, she is wrong.

Ketchup on hot dogs (favored by many rug rats) is an indication of a juvenile and unsophisticated palate.

You can quote me on this.

Oh, and don’t forget to let us know when the divorce decree is final.

Sounds like irreconcialble differences. Call an attorney, if they all aren’t already in PA, FL and MI.

Mustard and relish only. MAYBE a little chopped onion.

It's hard to beat a good thick angus or buffalo burger with crumbled blue cheese, jalapeno peppers and buffalo wing sauce.

Hot dogs demand thick, coarse ground brown mustard with the seeds that get stuck between your teeth.

Tomato sauces are usually reserved for our pastas; I don't use it on meats (even those odd things that are supposedly meats, called hotdogs..) Mayo and whole seed mustard, with perhaps a bit of horseradish if I've any fresh on hamburgers, hotdogs get mustard and kraut.

Onion soup in the meat mix, ketchup, mustard, pickle relish, lettuce, more onion, mayo (a touch) and a slab of cheddar. Potato salad, ice cold Corona with lime. Did I leave anything out?

Ketchup is a gastronomical abomination. Whenever you see a bottle of ketchup, know that nothing good will ever come out of it.

For burgers: barbecue sauce or salsa are acceptable, as is mustard. For hot dogs: mustard, sweet relish and sauerkraut piled about 3" high.

A person puts what they like on their food.

Now I like a Carolina Burger every now and again - that's the Burger, Chile and slaw. Cheese? Yes. After that just open the frig door and go to town.

This from a guy that had Branswieger, onions, hot peppers,dill pickles and yellow mustard on white bread for lunch.

Hopefully you and your wife are disagreeing, rather than arguing, over condiments. If you don't like the way your wife dresses up your burger ... prepare it yourself.

Having said all that, no ketchup on dogs for me either. I'll eat mayo on a burger if I have to, but I don't purposely put it there. Mayo on chicken or tuna salad and turkey sandwiches.

It is really a personal preference and not a matter of rules. My husband eats ketchup on everything. We joke that ketchup is a food group, according to him and our boys.

Mayo should be reserved for salads.

Mustard is the king of condiments and may be used on any burger, hotdog, or sandwich.

Ketchup should only be used when there is no tomato.

Mayo on a burger? NASTY! Why not just use lard? There’s enough fat onthe sucker already. Ketchup and green pickle relish are just fine.

Hot Dogs are disgusting, no need for condiments, those things aren’t fit for my dog!

Not that it matters, but I put a combination of ketchup, mustard, relish and onions on my hot dogs.

Mayo on the burgers.

What other people put on their burgers and hot dogs shouldn't be an issue to argue over. EVER!!

My husband eats mayo on hamburgers and hotdogs.
I like catsup and pickle on my burgers with lettuce and onion and I like chili, mustard and onions on my hotdogs. I am not a big fan of mayo on anything though.

Mayo should be band by the government as toxic waste.
Hot dogs: hot mustard and sweet relish.
Hamburgers: quality cheese, hot mustard, sweet relish and the smallest bit of catsup.
I beg to differ with your wife: there are no proper condiments for hot dogs and hamburgers, it is whatever you want. My daughter puts pineapple on her burgers - ick.

My FAVORITE condiment is Dijonaise.

Pickle relish and mustard on hot dogs. Hamburgers can have anything-pickles, ketchup, mustard, cheese-EXCEPT mayonnaise.

Are you incapable of preparing your own food, dude?

Ketchup and mustard on a dog for me...actually that sounds really good right now...and cheese plus either ketchup & mustard or a little mayo on a burger...bacon helps too.

Mayo (real mayo) and mustard on dogs and burgers. Ketchup on anything but fries is nasty and I think illegal.

From your home page, you appear to be a young man. Take it from someone with 20+ years marital experience: if your wife says she likes horseradish on her scrambled eggs, then you say, “Wow, that sounds delish! Oops, late for work/the gym/my nap...”

I think that explains why I like it...although I also require mustard.

No Mayo on either a hamburger or a hotdog. A Hamburger may have both ketchup and mustard. A hotdog may only have mustard. Both should have relish.

If you want to put mayo on something weird try Meatballs (in tomato sauce) and mayo. Very weird and very good.
