Seattle-Style Hot Dog

It might seem unusual to see cream cheese on a hot dog, but this is a classic meal straight from the West Coast. After you spread your warm cream cheese on the toasted hot dog bun, everything will become extra creamy and gooey as you get ready to take your first bite. You'll soon come to love this delicious and new take on a ball park classic that is modeled after the publican pork sausage.
