We believe there is simply no truer way to taste the American Dream this Sunday than a Feltman’s!
It all started in 1867 when Charles Feltman, a German baker, brought his frankfurter recipe to Coney Island and began selling them from a pie cart.
When he needed a way to avoid the cost of plates and cutlery, he baked a long bun upon which he could serve the frankfurter. This led to the very first hot dog on a bun.
Today, this Coney Island classic is distributed to thousands of supermarkets, like at your local Mollie Stone’s, making it possible for you to enjoy the one, the only, the true original hot dog!
The truly original way to enjoy a Feltman’s is on a potato bun with a healthy serving of Charles Feltman’s original mustard, but we think there’s really no wrong way to eat a Feltman’s hot dog like in this Game Day must-have Home Style Chili! Check out the recipe below!
Feltman’s Home Style Chili
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 2 Feltman’s of Coney Island hot dogs (grilled & sliced)
- 2 cups tomato sauce
- 1 ½ cup chopped tomato
- 2/3 cup jalapeño pepper slices (jarred or canned)
- Jalapeño juice from the jar or can, to taste
- ½ cup chopped raw onions
- ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbsp. garlic powder
- 1 Tbsp. paprika
- 1 Tbsp. smoked chili powder
- 2 Tbsp. hot sauce
- Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste
- Sour cream (garnish)
- Shredded cheddar (garnish)
- In a preheated skillet, add extra virgin olive oil and heat on high for 30-60 seconds; once the oil is hot, add ground chuck, raw onions, salt & pepper and stir over heat until chuck is brown.
- Carefully pour out excess grease.
- Add browned beef and onions to medium-sized Crock Pot.
- Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, powdered spices, jalapeños slices, jalapeño juice to taste, and hot sauce. Combine and stir until even mixture is reached.
