MPLS Dog: Behind the Scenes

One of the great things about working at Ingredient is getting to see the behind-the-scenes of how the recipe and content development sausage is made.  

And in the case of the MPLS Dog, here we’re talking literal sausage. (Tee-hee.)

Coming up with the idea is only half the battle; we then have to bring that idea to life and put our money where our mouth is (sorry, that’s the last bad food pun, promise) to create something that is both fun and delicious.

Luckily, fun and delicious is Ingredient’s specialty. So we rolled up our sleeves and hit the Ingredient kitchen in full mad scientist/Doc Brown mode.

Every component of the MPLS Dog went through rigorous testing:

What’s the perfect consistency of the hotdish?

Which cheese will make it through our intensive Cheese Trials? (Sometimes you just gotta blow torch things.)

Just how many tots should adorn this bad boy? (The correct answer is *all* the tots. Whatever you got, pack it on.)

Once we’d perfected the recipe, it was time to get the MPLS Dog styled for its close up. Because sometimes, looks actually do matter.

The end result? We nailed it.

Our reward? The whole company gathered and we ate. We ate our work, and it was delicious.

At Ingredient, this is what we’re all about – we love food, we love food culture, and we want to create and share those experiences.

We won’t share tots, though. So don’t even ask.
