Tom Lohr has eaten a hot dog at all 30 MLB ballparks and is the author of "Gone to the Dogs: In Search of the Best Ballpark Hot Dog."

Poland is a beautiful country. They have the Baltic Sea coast in the north, the Tatra Mountains in the south, and a whole lot going on in the kitchen. When the Poles immigrated to the United States, Americans were lucky that they brought their recipe book with them. This hot dog is called the Zloty dog, named after the Polish national currency, it and pays tribute to the awesome cuisine the Poles are noted for.
