Chicago style dogs with Charm City Corn

This recipe was not intended to go up on the blog, but I am glad Chad had me take a picture of his plate before we ate. He must have known it was going to be a good one. Corn on the cob in the summer is classic and this recipe gives it a new spicy kick. 

Charm City Corn - recipe found here
2 cups water
1 cup milk
4 ears of corn
4 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
Salt and pepper
Dash of hot sauce

Bring water, milk and a pinch of salt to a boil in a large pot. Break ears of corn in half; add to the pot and cook until crisp-tender about 5 minutes, then drain. In the same pot, melt butter, Old Bay Seasoning and a dash of hot sauce. Toss the corn in the spicy butter and season with salt and pepper. 

For our Chicago style dogs, we used only the best hot dogs - Hebrew National. Cooked according to package directions (I like to boil and lightly grill). Place cooked dogs in a whole wheat bun and top with sliced tomatoes, sliced cucumbers, sliced pickles, diced onion, mustard and pepper.
