8 Hot Dog Toppings
There is something so nostalgic about hot dogs. As a kid in the 80s, hot dogs were a common occurrence at friends Birthday parties, weekend sport and casual family catch-ups.
We think it's time to bring back the dog, so we've put together 8 delicious topping ideas to transform the old hot dog into something gourmetastic!
First things first - the hot dog.
For the hot dogs themselves we recommend buying good quality frankfurters with a high percentage of beef or pork (and nothing artificial).
Next, to boil or grill is the question? We recommend bringing a pot of water to a gentle boil, then removing it from the heat. Then place your hot dogs in the pot with the lid on and poach for 1-2 mins. Next, cook your hot dogs on the bbq over an indirect flame or alternatively on a hot griddle pan for another 1-2 mins until they are lightly charred. This will achieve the best result keeping the hot dogs plump and juicy and that delicious bbq flavour.
