CHICAGO DOG GRILLED CHEESE
The most Wisconsin way to adopt an Illinois emblem
The Midwest, supportive and polite place that it is, features plenty of edible tributes to its neighbor states. The iconic Chicago Dog, taking a trip up north in this beloved food cart, brings tomato wedges, sliced onions, deli mustard, and neon green relish. Of course, by the time it crossed the Wisconsin border, it got enveloped in Muenster and extra sharp Cheddar cheese, and before you know it, you’ve got a grilled cheese on your hands (and chin). The acidic tang of the mustard and relish, the aromatic onions, and the tempering mildness of the tomatoes are all instantly familiar... yet the amount of cheese permissible within Chicago city limits has exploded from cheese dog to full-on grilled cheese as only Madison can make it.
