Experimental hotdog recipes Mon, 08/16/10 12:08 AM (permalink)
After some discussion in another thread I've decided to start a new thread that's dedicated to experimental hotdog recipes. I really enjoy reading about regional hotdog favorites, and there are so many variations on a such a simple item as a hotdog. You've got your Coney Dogs, Chicago Dogs, Texas Hot Wieners, Slaw Dogs, the list goes on and on. Search Wikipedia.com for hotdogs and you will be amazed at the variations.   Please post your experimental hotdog recipes, you will find a lot of support from the rest of us hotdog lovers. Maybe together we can create some unique hotdog variations that haven't been tried before.

    Here is my first experimental hotdog contribution to this thread. It's called "Tom's Buffalo Dog". My idea was to deep fry a hotdog, dip in a Buffalo wing sauce, top with blue cheese crumbles and minced celery. I think it turned out quite well, it tasted really good. Here is a video I shot detailing the process.

      This is my own concoction:

      Pan-fry Nathan's in bacon grease until charred.
      Toast the buns in the same pan.
      Spread the buns with Trader Joe's green olive tapenade.
      Add diced raw onion or pan-fried onion.

        Tom,
         
        I haven't tried it yet, but my original thought of tasting your Hot Wiener Sauce was that the vinegar remined me of Buffalo.  Based on your video, I think the extra shot after cooking could be used by Tabasco for the hint of vinegar.

          Here's an old depression era dish that still pleases, especially kids......In a cassaerole dish, chop a pound of hot dogs(or more if you choose) into chunks, about 1 1/2 inches long. Spread out in pan...chop 4-5 large potatoes into about the same 1 1/2 chunks....chop 2-3 peppers(any color) into about the same size...mix all three equally around casserole dish(pyrex works well)...add 2-3 large cans of hunts tomato sauce(or delmonte tomato sauce..stir mixture....salt and pepper...cover with foil....bake at 350 degrees til potatoes are tender, about 40 minutes or so you can bake without foil an additional 5 minutes to crisp up hot dogs if you wish....fun dish...and a real old classic that still pleases...give it a try!!

            Sounds good, this gives me an idea, how about a "Muffaletta Dog".

            Place a grilled dog in a bun lined with a slice of mozzarella, a slice of Genoa salami,
            and top with mustard and olive salad. If you could find sourdough buns that would be perfect.

              these ideas so far sound delicious. I am going to try that depression era recipe.
