Ultimate Jumbo Hot Dog

January 29, 2014

With the superbowl coming up this weekend I thought hot dogs would be the perfect recipe to feature as eating hot dogs at a sporting event strikes me as a particularly American tradition. Having said that, I watched one American football game at the Red Skins’ stadium, in the box we didn’t have one hot dog but if we were served hot dogs like these I would have been all over it. Just in case the size of these hot dogs is overwhelming choose a smaller one but after you taste it you’ll be wishing you weren’t such a woose.

The most important components to any hot dog recipe are a soft roll, a meaty sausage and the right condiments. I love caramelised onions, but to balance the sweetness I made a spicy mayo and then layered bacon along with my favourite melting cheese, Muenster, which you may remember from my winning grilled cheese sandwich. After putting all these elements together, in 20 minutes you are all set to watch the game.  I hope your team wins!
