10 to 12 servings

  • 10 all-beef hot dogs (about 1 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 3 hot dog buns
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 1 English cucumber, cut into small pieces
  • 1 teaspoon celery salt
  • 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped sport peppers or pepperoncini (about 5 1/2 ounces)
  • One 14-ounce container yellow mustard
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped dill pickles (about 10 spears)
  • 1 cup sweet pickle relish
  • Potato chips, for serving

Put the hot dogs in a food processor and pulse until coarsely chopped. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add a third of the onions and cook, stirring, until soft and slightly golden brown, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Add the chopped hot dog and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let cool completely.

Preheat the broiler. Open the buns and arrange on a baking sheet. Broil until toasted on each side, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Cut into small pieces.

Whisk together the mayonnaise and poppy seeds in a small bowl. Toss the cucumber and celery salt together in a small bowl.

Layer the dip in a medium, 3-quart glass trifle bowl or your favorite small serving dish. Spread out the tomatoes on the bottom, then top, in even layers, with the peppers, toasted buns, a generous drizzle of mustard, the remaining onions, the hot dog mixture, the pickles, poppy seed sauce, relish and cucumber. Wrap and refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour or overnight. Garnish with another drizzle of mustard and serve with potato chips.
