Is it Mustard or Ketchup?

Once again the debate is heating up with the summer temperature.  What do you put on your hot dog?  Mustard or ketchup?  Also, what else is your favorite topping for the frankfurter, weiner, dog, red hot, sausage, brat, keilbasa, or coney?  Sauerkraut, onions, pickles, tomatoes, peppers, chili?
We want to hear from you so tell your friends.
Personally it is mustard and onions for me.  Ketchup users should be banned from the eating of the beloved dog.
Just kidding.....lets have some fun.
Happy summer eating

I am a ketchup fan and when eating it with red meat I mix it with horseradish. Though I don't do many hot dogs, and prefer the red skin all beef with a nice char on them from the grill, it has to have a wee bit of ketchup, a good smothering of mustard and chopped raw onions. Yum! O, and I shall never apologize for loving ketchup, not even when my husband groans as I dip prime rib into it!

I'm a fan of the good old beef hot dogs, grilled of course! I love to top mine with mustard and ketchup. When I was little my grandma used to slice a pickle in half and wedge it on both sides of the dog. Then smother with ketchup and mustard. I haven't done that in ages......think I might do that the next time I have a dog! :)

I'm not a big hot dog fan, but I will indulge in one from our local hot dog place - we get them with mustard, onions and coney sauce. At home, my husband is a mustard and onion guy...even though I DID make the same coney sauce they serve at home, it just wasn't the same! Must be something in those neon lights of the hot dog place!

Has to be mustard...preferably Dijon mustard with onions, and homemade relish!

not much of a hotdog fan:( but if they are on the menu, I like mustard, zucchini relish and mayo, or chili, onion and cheese. Ketchup has it's place-on grilled cheese or with french fries and lots of vinegar and pepper.

Surachi sauce and banana peppers

Mustard, ketchup, relish, onions if chili is not available.

this is a no-brainer...mustard, onions, and chili with oyster crackers.

ketchup on a dawg is admitting defeat ...almost as bad as cilantro and beets.

Definitely mustard, the only way to go. My children love ketchup on theirs, I tell them that its un-American and I'm not sure we are related, lol. I love chili, cheese, onions, and jalapenos to top it off. YUM

We like mustard at our house. My son eats mustard sandwiches and loves to dip his fries in mustard. Dijon with horseradish. We like it hot and spicy.
