Hot dogs are my guilty pleasure. To ease the guilt I do my best to pick the “healthiest” hot dog out there. I use quotes because really, can a hot dog be healthy? But I only buy kosher, all beef dogs, and when I can find them, nitrate free.

Recently I was in Salt Lake City (only 5 trips in the month of May alone, that’s a record) and I popped into my favorite Italian market Caputo’s Market and Deli to satisfy my craving for pastrami. I picked up a pound and headed home. I actually had a specific recipe plan for it, but then I changed my mind when I saw jumbo dogs at my local market.https://www.caputosdeli.comOnce I changed my mind from my original idea and went with hot dogs, the rest just happened as easily as could be. I love a good pastrami sandwich with just mustard and a dill pickle, so I knew I’d love this just the same, if not more.

Now you may notice in the recipe that I indicated 3/4 pound, but yet just above wrote that I purchased a full pound. Turns out Elizabeth loves pastrami. She sampled it while we were at Caputo’s and loved it (same cannot be said for the lamb ham we tried). Once I opened the package to make the dogs, she just couldn’t help herself, she took a slice, then another, and another. In all, she ate a quarter pound. Serious, my child ate 1/4 pound of pastrami in a single sitting. Needless to say she wasn’t hungry when it came time to eat these dogs, but that left more for us.

Making these is super quick. The longest part is boiling the water, everything else is done in that time. Heating the pastrami took maybe 2-3 minutes. If the dill pickle spears are really thick, slice them in half. Other wise, the prep is minimal and the pay off is wonderful. Pastrami Hot Dogs ~ Kosher All-Beef Jumbo hot dogs steam cooked, tossed in a potato bun loaded with New York Style Pastrami, yellow mustard and a dill pickle ~ The Complete Savorist Pastrami Hot Dogs ~ Kosher All-Beef Jumbo hot dogs steam cooked, tossed in a potato bun loaded with New York Style Pastrami, yellow mustard and a dill pickle ~ The Complete Savorist

    My favorite brand of hot dog is no longer made. It was kosher and so good. With the pastrami, pickle & mustard I could enjoy a good hotdog again.

    Hahaha – I love how you totally nailed this gloriously crazy concoction – “the pinnacle of indulgence, comfort food, and over the top deliciousness!” Perfectly describes these gorgeous creations! 😀 And I loved, too, how you balanced the indulgence with the idea of finding healthfulness in it where you could – like with choosing good quality, nitrate-free hot dogs. We all need a little indulgence sometimes, but why not make it the best it can be, right?!?! (And definitely … why not add pickles whenever possible?! 😉 )

    Who can blame her for eating so much in one sitting? Caputo’s pastrami is the best! 🙂 This is a fantastic way to elevate the humble hot dog!
