    I need help from some Iowa State brethren. I recently have had the urge to attempt to recreate my own superdogs at home. The trouble is, I do not believe I was ever what you'd call sober when I had one. Thus, I am not entirely sure I remember exactly what was on it. Can anyone help me out with this?

    The guys that owned the super-dog were the head chefs at Lucullans. The recipe was a real jumbo hot dog, CUCUMBER sauce (should be a recipe for it online), potato chips, and chedder cheese on top. you will have to broil them in your oven, unless you have a cheese cooker in your house.

    The pineapple sauce will be hard to come by, but I never liked it much anyways. Always ordered without.

    I do remember there being bacon and potato chips melted underneath the layer of cheese. Can't remember what else was in there.

    We made some for New Year's Eve this year and they turned out almost exactly like I remember.

    Jumbo hot dog
    Crushed Pineapple
    Mayonnaise with some cilantro and minced, roasted garlic
    Ketchup
    Mustard
    Crumbled potato chips
    Bacon
    Sliced mozzarella cheese

    Boil the hot dogs per instructions, assemble all ingredients on a nice sliced roll (bakery brat buns worked great). Put under the broiler for 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese.

    I would love a full list of ingredients. I've been craving one forever and am having a hard time explaining it to the GF.

    Are you kidding? The sweetness of the pineapple is what put the super-dog over the top!

    I saw a documentary a couple years ago where some people had a similar problem - the answer you seek is...

    That sounds disgusting when you're sober but boy does it taste good when you're drunk.

    I have also never been sober when I had a super dog, but I love them. I'm pretty sure I don't care for half of the ingredients, if they were by themselves, but something about all of that stuff together was the absolute perfect storm of ingredients.

    The place I where I used to work would periodically hire the Super Dog guys to bring the cart on site for lunch. They were never as good when I was sober.

    I've had a sober super dog, and didn't think it was bad.

    Obviously all of those kinds of food taste better when you're drunk and starving, but it was still good.

    If I wanted something sweet, I'd go into Kum and Go get some ice cream. I don't really like sweets to begin with, and I'm really not a fan of mixing sweet and savory like that. It's like peach salsa. Not my cup of tea.
