The Bagel Dog
Slightly more eccentric than some other dogs on this list, the bagel dog is perfect when you want something really different. The traditional form of the bagel dog is simple and elegant: everything bagel dough wrapped around a beef dog and served with a side of mustard. However, if you're not in the mood to go through the process of making bagel dough beforehand, I'd suggest taking a page of NYC hot dog vendor Crif Dogs book: a beef frank on a classic bun with cream cheese, scallions, and everything bagel seeds. It's a great way to dress a hot dog and try something a little different, especially when summer begins to wind down and everyone beginning to grow tired of the usual fixings.
