Before the New York Giants and New England Patriots take the field in Super Bowl XLVI on February 5, Americans will get to choose a far more important winner in the battle of the wieners. As a tribute to the two Super Bowl teams, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) is releasing two new hot dog recipes, and asking Americans to choose their favorite Super Bowl dog on the Council’s popular Facebook page (

The New York Giants hot dog brings a supersized version of the classic Big Apple boiled hot dog on a steamed bun with yellow mustard and steamed onions while the New England dog mixes the rich flavors of Boston baked beans, bacon, honey mustard and a grilled hot dog into a delectable delight. The full recipes can be found below and on the NHDSC Facebook page.

“The New York hot dog has to be the early favorite based on its history,” said Janet Riley, NHDSC president, “but at a time when Americans are looking for unique flavors, the New England dog could pull the upset. Either way, both dogs are great additions to any tailgate or Super Bowl party.”

New data shows that Americans bought $1.7 billion worth of hot dogs last year in grocery stores alone with New Yorkers consuming the third most hot dogs in the country.

In addition to these new hot dog recipes, the NHDSC offers a full collection of “Meat Eats for the Big Game” with recipes ranging from Sideline Stuffed Sausage Mushrooms to Roast Beef Quarterback Quesadillas. To view these recipes, click here:

"Whether you are looking for finger foods or entrees, cooking on the grill or indoors, these recipes should be in your line-up on Sunday," said Riley. "And not only are these recipes easy to prepare, they will feed a big group without a big price tag."
