Nathan’s Hot Dogs
For this recipe we used Nathan’s brand hot dogs. Nathan’s hot dogs began in 1917 as a nickel hot dog stand in Coney Island. It bears the name of co-founder Nathan Handwerker who started the business with his wife, Ida Handwerker. Ida created the hot dog recipe they used, and Ida’s grandmother created the secret spice recipe. The original Nathan’s hot dog stand still exists at its original 1916 location.
The Original Stand
Having been open for business every day, 365 days a year, since they opened in 1916, the stand was forced to close on October 29, 2012, due to Hurricane Sandy. Thankfully the stand re-opened six months later. The shop is opened year-round, with service provided inside. In the summer additional walk-up windows are opened to serve the larger seasonal crowds. The original location still features frog legs, which have been an original Nathan’s menu item since the 1950’s. Frog legs are only offered at their original location.
