I love veggie hot dogs. I used to love normal meaty hot dogs but I think veggie ones are even nicer as there’s no lips and arseholes to worry about in the sausage. And L declared today that “nothing beats a hotdog on a Saturday” so what more excuse do you need…?
This might not seem like a particularly challenging recipe but I plead with you to do the onions as directed below. This way you’ll end up with perfect burger van onions (minus the e-coli). And you have to use French’s mustard. Or else.
For 2 people you need:
4 finger rolls, split
4 veggie hot dog suasages
proper american french’s mustard
A little vegetable oil
A small knob of butter
Freshly boiled water
Begin by preparing the onion. Peel and then cut in half through the poles. Slice finely and place in a frying pan (preferably not a non stick one) with about 1-2 tsp vegetable oil. Cook gently for 10 mins or so. Once the onion starts to soften add the butter and 1=2 tbsp boiled water and bring to the boil. Immediately reduce the heat and leave them to cook out. Add a little more water if the onions aren’t that soft. After about another 10mins add the butter and turn up the heat slightly to brown them.
Meanwhile heat the sausages in a pan of boiling water for 3-4 mins. Drain and place in a hot dog bun. My preferred serving suggestion is a layer of ketchup, a layer of mustard, the sausage, some more ketchup and mustard and finally the onions. Enjoy.
