What we’re referring to is the way that 99% percent of people eat hot dogs, which is in tubular form on a bun,” Mittenthal told Fox. “And that is not a sandwich. A bologna sandwich is a sandwich.

Hot dogs are made of meat

Though it seems pretty obvious, Mittenthal told Fox News that the most common misconception about hot dogs ishow they’re made and what goes into them.

It’s a very simple process about how they’re made,” Mittenthal told Fox. “Hot dogs are pieces of meat that are cut up verycut up off of steaks and roasts, they’re ground up very finely and they’re mixed with spices stuffed into a casing and cooked.

It’s as simple as that.,Mittenthal added. “All the notions that people have of things that they think go into hot dogs are incorrect. It’s simply meat. It’s what you see on the ingredients label. If it says beef, if it says pork, if it says poultry. That’s what it is. And it’s nothing more complicated than that.
