4 slices cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon milk

4 hot dogs

2 cups cheddar tortilla chips (crushed)

Brush rolled hot dogs lightly with milk. Roll each one in the crushed tortilla chips.

#3. Beer Battered Hot Dog Nuggets

Ever tasted hot dogs with a hint of beer? Try this out!

What you need:

1 (350mL) bottle beer                                                                                   

1 cup flour                                                                      

2 teaspoons salt

3 eggs (separated)   

8 hot dogs

How to prepare:

Mix egg yolks, flour, salt, oil and beer in a bowl. Whisk until smooth. Let the mixture rest for as long as possible or even overnight inside the fridge.

When beer batter is ready, whisk egg whites to stiff medium peaks. Fold the egg whites into the beer batter.

To assemble the hot dogs, split each one in half (but NOT all the way through) along its length.

Spread mustard evenly on the cut and stuff with cheese, making sure there is enough amount of cheese on each dog. Be careful not to overstuff.

Cut each dog into 4 chunks and roll each one in flour. Dip in beer batter.

Deep fry chunks in oil at 175°C until golden brown.

Serve with ketchup, mustard or relish.
