White Hot

Although it resembles a weisswurst, the beloved white hot of upstate New York plays the role of a hot dog, served in a bun and traditionally dressed, sometimes topped with chili. Originally devised by a Rochester butcher shop in the 1920s as an alternative to red hots, it is made with uncured (hence white) pork and veal (and even sometimes also beef). The Buffalo Bills of the National Football League once deemed the white hot their official hot dog. Its local nickname is “a porker.”
