  • (intense music)

  • - What it do everybody, My name is Ross Pineda,

  • chef and owner of FYEH Kitchen.

  • And today we're gonna be testing

  • five famous celebrity hot dog recipes.

  • On today's lineup we have Chrissy Teigen,

  • David Chang, Tabitha Brown, Matty Matheson,

  • and Gordon Ramsay.

  • So I measured out all the ingredients

  • exactly as each recipe stated,

  • and I brought three of my friends here

  • to see which one is their favorite.

  • So I got a question for you guys,

  • is a hotdog a sandwich?

  • I dunno, but let's get these glizzys crackin'.

  • So first off we have Chrissy Teigen.

  • She starts off by boiling some macaroni

  • for her macaroni salad.

  • We're gonna cut up some scallions, jalapenos,

  • red onion, toss it in a bowl with salt and pepper.

  • She's gonna to top that off with ketchup, mustard,

  • mayo, and relish to finish off the topping

  • for her macaroni salad.

  • (upbeat beat)

  • Once the macaroni salad is finished,

  • she's gonna butter the top and bottom of her buns,

  • and toast it in a pan, and fry up her hot dog.

  • Once the hot dog is finished cooking,

  • she's gonna top it off with some ketchup, mustard, relish,

  • macaroni salad, and crushed up barbecue chips.

  • And there you have it, Chrissy Teigen's loaded mac dog.

  • - This one looks interesting.

  • - There's chips, macaroni.

  • I dunno what kinda sauce is on here.

  • - Let's get it going.

  • (upbeat beat)

  • - The macaroni and the chips

  • taste really good with the hot dog.

  • - This is actually really good.

  • It kinda gives like a cold salad kinda vibe.

  • - Something you would find at a barbecue.

  • You just throw everything on your plate,

  • 'cause you don't wanna go back for seconds.

  • - This probably isn't something I would order

  • like off the menu that if I would

  • see what ingredients were on it.

  • But after tasting it, it's actually really good.

  • - [Ross] The next up we have David Chang's Chang dog recipe.

  • First, he's gonna start off by wrapping up a hot dog

  • in a slice of bacon.

  • Once you have all five wrapped up,

  • you're gonna cut up some kimchi

  • and set that aside for the topping.

  • In a hot pan, you're gonna cook the bacon wrapped

  • hot dogs slowly on each side

  • so all the sides of the bacon get nice and crispy.

  • (upbeat beat)

  • Once the hot dog has done cooking,

  • you're gonna set up in a bun,

  • and top it off with the kimchi.

  • And boom, there you have it.

  • David Chang's Chang dog.

  • - This one looks like it has kimchi on it.

  • - Let's try it.

  • (upbeat beat)

  • - This one is spicy, really spicy.

  • - Once you get past the spicy,

  • the onions and the hot dog do taste good, but it hot.

  • - You got some bacon wrapped around the hot dog,

  • which is pretty good.

  • For that spice though, not for me.

  • - I feel like this would be for somebody

  • who really likes Korean food,

  • who really wants to put kimchi on everything.

  • But this is one that's definitely not for me.

  • - [Ross] Next up we have everyone's favorite vegan

  • specialist Tabitha Brown.

  • She starts off by peelin' some carrots.

  • Make sure you peel it over a towel to eliminate the mess.

  • She's gonna top and tail the carrots

  • and set 'em aside, so we can get our liquid together.

  • So in a large pot she brings together water,

  • amino acids, liquid smoke, A.1. Steak Sauce,

  • agave, and ketchup.

  • (upbeat music)

  • You're gonna drop in your carrots,

  • and cook for about 10 minutes or so until tender.

  • Once the carrots are done cooking,

  • she tops it off with ketchup, mustard, and relish.

  • - This one here looks very interesting.

  • It doesn't look like an ordinary hot dog.

  • - I'ma give it a shot though.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - If you vegan, this is for you.

  • 'Cause this is a carrot in the bun.

  • Something Bugs Bunny would order.

  • - The carrot is very soft,

  • it just has like that garden taste to it.

  • I don't think it goes really well with the mustard.

  • Like I would rather put like barbecue sauce on it.

  • Just to get more of a meat vibe from it,

  • I wouldn't put the regular condiments

  • that they put on a hot dog.

  • - [Ross] Next up we got Matty Matheson's

  • different approach to a hot dog recipe.

  • He starts off by fryin' up some fries in hot oil,

  • about 350 degrees.

  • Once the fries are done,

  • he's gonna set 'em aside,

  • and we're gonna start building our roux.

  • In a pan he's gonna add flour and butter.

  • Once the flour and butter start

  • getting a golden brown color,

  • we're gonna slowly add some chicken stock

  • until it gets a sauce consistency.

  • At this point, we're gonna season it with salt, pepper,

  • poultry seasoning, white pepper, ketchup, and soy sauce.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Once the gravy has come to a simmer,

  • he's gonna cut up some hot dogs

  • and warm those through in the sauce.

  • Lastly, he throws in some frozen peas.

  • Now we're gonna assemble the dish.

  • We're gonna layer some french fries,

  • and cheese curd, and top it off with the hot gravy

  • so that the cheese curds'll melt.

  • If you don't know, now you know, hot dog poutine.

  • - This one looks like something I really enjoy,

  • this looks delicious.

  • French fries, cut up hot dogs.

  • - Lookin' like a poutine.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - This one I like.

  • - This tastes really good,

  • that's something I would definitely order.

  • - This was like, if I ordered it from like a diner.

  • - All the components, are there sweet, savory, spicy.

  • This is definitely like for a child.

  • It's everything on one plate.

  • - This one's really good.

  • I like this.

  • - It's all right, it's decent.

  • - [Ross] And now the moment you've all been waiting for,

  • Gordon Ramsay's hotdog recipe.

  • He's gonna start off by cutting up some onions,

  • and sauteing it in a pan with garlic.

  • Once that's all nicely cooked out,

  • he's gonna throw in some cumin seed, and chili pepper.

  • Once that's all nicely toasted,

  • he's gonna throw in some ground beef,

  • and you're gonna cook that out.

  • We're gonna season it with some Worcestershire sauce,

  • don't at me.

  • He's gonna add some tomato paste,

  • we're gonna cook it out so that

  • you get rid of the iron taste.

  • He's gonna season it with salt, pepper, dried oregano,

  • sugar, and lastly throw in some crushed tomatoes.

  • We're gonna cook it out slowly.

  • Once that's all done cooking,

  • a bug in a bun, and top that off with the chili.

  • And there it is folks, Gordon Ramsay's chili dog.

  • - This one looks like a taco hot dog,

  • like sloppy joe kinda thing.

  • (upbeat music)

  • - This one right here is heavy.

  • - This one's okay.

  • But it reminds me of public school lunch.

  • - Flavors are there, seasoned very well.

  • Something I would order,

  • something you'll find at a carnival,

  • or maybe at a ballpark.

  • - It was really just average,

  • there's nothin' special about this.

  • - If I was given this, I would eat it, but would I buy it?

  • No.
