Chicago Dog Pate

The recipe is based on a traditional Chicago Dog, which was deconstructed and then reconstructed into a playful, yet sophisticated version. This bite-size food is a great addition at baseball-themed parties and summer BBQs. It would be best served to family and friends who appreciate creativity in what they eat.
