Instead of being in a hot dog bun, this style wraps the hot dog in bagel-style bread. There are no toppings in this recipe, as it’s made by steaming and covering the wiener with bagel dough and then sprinkling sesame or poppy seeds over it. Grill it and you will get yourself a tasty bagel dog.

New York Hot Dog
