New York System Hot Wieners
Ingredients: A beef hot dog drenched in yellow mustard, onions, celery salt, and ground-beef sauce
Fat content: With 13 grams of fat for the hot dog and 15 grams of fat in a serving of ground beef, youll max out your daily recommended limit of fat; the ground-beef sauce is also made with ultra-fatty shortening.
In the late 1930s, a father-son team moved to Rhode Island from Greece, by way of Brooklyn, and opened a small restaurant in Providence. The popular fare -- New York System Hot Wieners -- is still a regional favorite.
