How To Make A “Minnesota Dog”! Minnesota Hot Dog Recipe!
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bar-S Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.
Surely you have heard of the famous “Chicago Dog”. Well, Minnesota has their own version of the hot dog using regional ingredients and let me tell you, it’s amazing! Give this “Minnesota Dog” a try and you won’t be disappointed. It’s loaded with regional favorites like Top the Tater and Porketta. Not sure what those are? They are regional to Minnesota and are absolute favorites around here. Definitely Minnesota Must Haves!
To make your very own Minnesota Dog you’ll need Porketta, Top the Tater, hot dog buns and Bar-S Franks. I use the bun length franks. They come in a big family size package so there are plenty for the whole family and they won’t break the bank either. They are tasty and affordable. In fact they are the #1 selling franks in the US!

Porketta and Top the Tater are regional favorites here in Minnesota. Top the Tater is a sour cream based dip that has chives and onions in it. If you can’t buy it locally then you can make your own mix of the three ingredients. Porketta is also a regional favorite here and is a pork roast that is seasoned and slow cooked until it falls apart. It is bursting with flavor and if you can’t find this near you I have shared my Porketta recipe here so you can make it yourself!
Start by grilling your Bar-S franks to perfection.
Once your Bar-S franks are grilled you’ll place them into a bun.
Next top them with your Top the Tater sour cream spread and then top that with Porketta. I’ll show you how I make them in this one minute video!
Now you’ve got yourself a Minnesota Dog! Yum! You’ve definitely snagged yourself a taste of Minnesota in this recipe! It is incredible!

I want to make these amazing Minnesota dog recipe. It looks so delicious and fun to make. I just make Loaded Hot dogs with relish, olives, cheese, grilled onions and mustard or ketchup. I want to try it with this Top the Tater Sour Cream spread!
Oh, olives sounds really good on a hot dog.

Thank you. They are really tasty.
I have never heard of Porketta but it looks really good! I would love to try one of your hot dogs!

This sounds so super yummy. I would totally makes this and eat it up. No questions. Never heard of a Minnesota hot dog before 😉
It is so good.
Great little video! I have never heard of a Minnesota hot dog before, nor Top the Tater or Porketta. But I love the sound of all of it! I sure wish we got the Top the Tater here in NC…sounds awesome! That hot dog is definitely a meal!
You can easily make your own Top the Tater. Sour cream, onion, and chives is all you need!
never heard of Porketta,,it does look good though,,i would love to try it anyway,but where would you get the porketta??
It is a Minnesota dish. It is possible you won’t be able to find it. But I do have a recipe for slow cooker porketta that you can use!
I have never heard of porketta or top the tater. Where I live we used to have something called chive-o which is sour cream and chives and I would use for baked potatoes but I don’t think they make it anymore. I would love to try making this recipe, it sounds very interesting.
It is really good. Give it a try sometime.
It is really similar to Chive-O, just add onions and you have Top the Tater.
I’ve never had a hot dog like this but it sure looks delicious.
It is so tasty.
I have never even heard of this, it looks great!
