What is a hot dog?

Hot Dog is an American dish, which is a sausage, placed in an oblong bun and dressed with ketchup and mustard. The exact circumstances of the origin of the hot dog do not exist, but the idea of ​​combining a sausage and a bun most likely belongs not to the Americans, but to the Germans. It is believed that such a dish was brought to the USA only in 1871, while in Germany it existed long before that – from 1487. Americans quickly fell in love with hot dogs and immediately began mass production. In 1994, the National Hot Dog Council was even formed.
