Why is a hot dog called?
Traditional American hot dog food has its roots in Germany, specifically in Frankfurt.
It was Germany made famous all over the world for its sausages and sausages, which were made there by many and according to various recipes.
History suggests that some Frankfurters invented long, thin sausages that became the prototype of modern sausages. The manufacturer called his creation dachshund, which in German means “dachshund”, apparently by analogy with the long calf of this breed.
A little later, an enterprising German immigrant to America began selling sausage data, placing them sandwich-style between two slices of bread, which he later replaced on a roll.
This happened in the 19th century, when even the upper world did not yet know about napkins, so bread played an important toilet role it allowed you not to get your hands dirty with fat and not to burn them with hot sausages.
And in the early twentieth century, American artist Dargan decided to make an illustration of the most popular dish, so beloved in the New World. He knew the translation of the word, but did not know the exact spelling in German; therefore, without hesitation, he signed an illustration in his own language, conveying the general meaning of the name. Yes, the sausage on bread was called “hot dog” hot dog.
According to another version, hot dogs were called hot dogs by nimble students in the late nineteenth century. Buying these sandwiches in mobile cars, they realized that they were constantly gathering packs of dogs attracted by the smell.
So, at first, student folk vans were named dogs and then the word went to sausages.
