The Evolution of the Hot Dog

The variety of ethnic groups that call America home is clearly reflected in the foods that Americans eat. We love spaghetti and pizza. We devour sushi, tacos, and egg rolls. We crave chocolate. We drink coffee and tea on a daily basis. Americans have become quite skilled at taking the food of one culture and making it part of their own. Even when Americans invent a dish, the recipe often derives from the recipe or dish of another nation. Such is the case with the hot dog. Many people believe the hot dog was invented in America. Its roots are actually somewhere else. A hot dog is made of pieces of beef, pork, or turkey stuffed inside a casing or skin. This casing makes the hot dog a kind of sausage, and sausages are not a new food. They date as far back as the 9th century B.C. when Homer mentions them in his epic poem The Odyssey. The northern Europeans perfected sausages. In fact, two cities quarrel over which one gave birth to the wiener. Frankfurt, Germany, claims to have developed the frankfurter in 1487, while Vienna (Wien), Austria,

declares that the wiener originated in its fair city long before that time.

A wiener by itself, however, is not a hot dog. To be called a hot dog, the wiener

needs a bun. The Germans ate bread with their wieners, but they did not place the

wieners inside buns. That invention came about in America during the 1800s—by

German immigrants! The bun allowed people to hold the sausage while walking.

No one knows who first put a sausage into a bun, but in the 1860s German

immigrants began selling them from food carts on the streets of New York City.

The new snack was a success. In 1871 Charles Feltman sold almost four thousand

sausages-in-rolls at Coney Island, the beach and fairgrounds most famous for

popularizing the hot dog.

The invention of the hot dog preceded the name. The first hot dogs were called

“dachshund sausages,” named for the German breed of dog that looks like a wiener.

How the name changed to “hot dogs” is uncertain. However, since the new name

was short and easy to remember, it quickly became a part of the American

vocabulary. By the 1890s the term “hot dog” could be found in a Yale University

newspaper.

In 1893 hot dogs became associated with baseball. Chris von der Ahe, a German

immigrant who owned the St. Louis Browns, began selling hot dogs at his games.

Thus began the tradition of having a hot dog or two at the ballpark. Many legends exist about the invention of the hot dog. One of them tells of a cold April day in 1900 at the New York City Polo Grounds. Harry Stevens was selling

ice cream and cold drinks; however, because of the cold weather, he was not selling

very much. Then he had an idea. He grilled German sausages, sold them in rolls,

and called them “red hot dachshund sausages.” T.A. Dorgan, a well-known cartoonist, bought one. The next day he drew a cartoon of a dachshund in a roll, thus immortalizing the hot dog. Another legend claims that Antoine Feuchtwanger was selling sausages at the

1904 St. Louis World’s Fair. He loaned gloves to customers so that they could hold

their sausages without making a mess. Because many customers never returned the

gloves, Feuchtwanger came up with the idea of having a baker make rolls for the

sausages.

By the twentieth century, hot dogs had become a regular snack or even meal for

Americans. In 1939 President Roosevelt served the visiting king of England, King

George VI, hot dogs because he wanted the king to experience a uniquely American

dish.

If one is to experience American cuisine, the hot dog must be on the menu. Hot

dogs are as American as the Fourth of July. In fact, the two often go together. Hot

dogs are popular because they are inexpensive and easy to eat. The average

American eats eighty hot dogs a year. How many hot dogs do you eat in a year?

Dear Aunt Olivia,

When I got home from school today, I was surprised to find a large package

waiting for me. Opening the package to find so many special toys from the past

was thrilling. Thank you so much for the wonderful old-fashioned toys!

I enjoyed playing with your toy collection last summer. The old toys you have

gathered over the years are so much fun. Toys have changed quite a bit since you

were young. Modern toys have every kind of special effect you can imagine. I still

think the old toys are better than the new ones. You must have remembered how

much I liked them. I was serious when I said I would like to start a collection of old toys, too.

Now, thanks to you, my toy collection is off to a great start. The wooden yoyo

is definitely my favorite. It is so simple and well made. I only have to jerk my

wrist, and the yoyo flows up and down from my hand. It is the smoothest yoyo I

have ever tried. The yoyo is one toy that has not changed much over the years.

Some newer yoyos may make sounds and have flashing lights, but none of them

flow as smoothly from my hand as this one. The yoyo is like part of my own body!

Another one of my favorites is the set of wooden blocks. The carved alphabet

letters and painted pictures on the sides still look great. I had some plastic blocks

when I was younger, but they were nothing like these. The wooden ones are very special.

The metal train and truck are great, too. Even though the paint has worn away

over time, these heavy little vehicles were built to last. Like the blocks, the train

and truck have many special details. They also have parts that resemble real trains

and trucks. I can just imagine little children playing with these many years ago.

I showed Mom the old slide whistle and kazoo you sent me. They look a little

like the recorders we used to play in music class. She told me to tell you,

“Thanks, Sis!” She had a funny look on her face when she said that. I guess she

does not appreciate the music I have been playing around the house all afternoon.

I cannot wait to show my antique toy instruments to my music teacher tomorrow.

Mom said I may take them to school to share with my music class. I wonder what

my teacher will think of them.

Finally, thank you for the beautiful china set with the delicate blue flowers

painted on the dishes. I have always wanted a real tea set. The flowers look as if

they were painted by hand. Mom said she would help me wash my tea set after

dinner. Then we will have a tea party! I can hardly wait!

Thank you so much for the toys. You have made me one very happy young toy collector!

Your niece,

  • Diane
