A Seattle-style hot dog, sometimes referred to as a Seattle Dog, is a hot dog topped with cream cheese and sautéed onions.

Cream cheese?


Michigan hot dog – a steamed hot dog on a steamed bun topped with a meaty sauce, generally referred to as "Michigan sauce." [source]

Michigan hot dogs of upstate New York, not to be confused with Coney Island hot dogs of the state of Michigan.

Michigan sauce bears little resemblance to Detroit Coney sauce, with no offal and barely any Greek flavor, although the texture is similar to Flint sauce. [source]

Michigan sauce, Detroit sauce, Flint sauce…

Coney Island hot dog » Regional and local varieties » Michigan »

The Coney Island developed in Michigan is topped with a beef heart-based sauce, one or two stripes of yellow mustard, and diced or chopped onions.

Detroit style
Detroit style sauce is a bean-less chili sauce.

Flint style
A dry hot dog topping made with a base of ground beef heart, which is ground to a consistency of fine-ground beef. Restaurants then add chopped onions sautéed in beef tallow.

Jackson style
Jackson style uses a thick hearty sauce of either ground beef or ground beef heart. The Jackson style was late to the usage of beef heart.

Kalamazoo style
Topping served on a skinless frankfurter.

Idea: America Dog – A bacon-wrapped dirty water half-smoke topped with beef heart chili, cole slaw, cream cheese, and radioactive green relish.

Idea: Chicago Roll – Like a Rainbow Roll, but California Roll topped with Chicago-style hot dog toppings.

Idea: Seattle-style pizza – Cream cheese instead of mozzarella.

"Seattle-style" should mean "features cream cheese," like how all California-style food features avocado. Philadelphia Roll? No, Seattle Roll!


I thought these were tacos at first.
