Most of us love hot dogs, if not all. These meaty favourites have practically taken over the world – from Sydney to Chicago, Germany to Japan and many other countries. You can see them in hot dog stands on the streets and in restaurants. Whenever you see them on a grill, it’s almost as if they’re calling you to grab a bite.
Hot dogs are usually served in a bun. But there are many other ways you can enjoy them. Here are 3 must-try recipes for the hot dog lover in you.
Hot Dog Cornbread Casserole
Have some left over hot dogs? No problem! This is the perfect recipe to try out.
¾ cup milk
2 (250g) packs corn muffin mix
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
4-5 hot dogs, cut in 1cm slices (hot dogs can be grilled or fresh from the pack)
Preheat oven to 190°C.
Mix corn muffin mix, eggs, milk and cayenne pepper in a large bowl. Add the hot dogs.
Coat a 20cm square baking dish with choice of cooking spray. Pour in hot dog mixture.
Bake for 25-30 minutes. To determine if it’s cooked, you may insert a toothpick in the centre. If it comes out dry, then it’s good to go.
Allow it to cool, slice and enjoy.
Hot Dog Pizza
Who doesn’t like pizza? For this recipe, two all-time favourites come together to make a fantastic snack.
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 (350g) can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 ¼ cups mozzarella cheese, shredded (divided into ¾ and ½ cups)
¼ tsp. garlic powder
3 hot dogs, sliced
Preheat oven to 204°C.
Separate biscuits and on lightly greased baking sheets, press each one into a 10-cm circle.
Mix garlic powder and mayonnaise and brush over biscuit rounds.
Sprinkle the ¾ cup of cheese over the mayonnaise mixture and finally add hot dog slices on top.
Bake for 5 minutes then sprinkle the other ½ cup of cheese on top. Bake for another 5 minutes or until biscuit rounds become light brown and cheese melts.
Serve and dig in!
