Foodie Freebie Friday: Vienna Beef Hot Dog Kit!

Happy Monday to you and hope you had a great weekend! To start the week off on a tasty note, this week's Foodie Freebie Friday is a special one. It's officially summer (finally!) and why not start it with a giveaway of a summer food... like hot dogs?!

Vienna Beef is a manufacturer of hot dogs used in the the classic Chicago style hot dog, as well as Polish Sausage and Italian beef, delicacies of independent Chicago-style hot dog and beef stands. They also produce a variety of deli meats, some of which are available at Chicagoland supermarkets. - Wikipedia

Here in Chicago, Vienna Beef is my preferred brand of hot dogs... and in Chicago, many enjoy preparing it in the traditional Chicago style way. We steam or boil our hot dogs and place them on a poppy seed bun. The fun part is topping it with a good yellow mustard, chopped white onion, a signature "neon green" pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, sliced tomato wedges, pickled sport peppers and a sprinkle of celery salt. However the order we top it, there is one cardinal rule we must follow. No ketchup! In fact, many hot dog spots refuse to even carry it in their establishments!

For this week's Foodie Freebie Friday, I'm giving away a special Vienna Beef Chicago Hot Dog kit with all the "Chicago" trimmings and includes:

- 10 Vienna Natural Casing Hotdogs
- 10 Poppyseed Buns
- 9-oz. of mustard
- 6-oz. of relish
- 6-oz of sport peppers
- celery salt

Some guidelines:

- Giveaway is only for those who live in the United States - my apologies to my international readers!
