The original poster, John Sagi wrote to me and asked if he could use my photos for his fledgling hot-dog site. I said that it was fine with me. He was concerned about mentioning and linking his site, but he does link Road Food.com and I think the worst case scenario will be that we might get some new posters discussing how a hot dog should be eaten.
I did a variation of the grape jelly dish using currant jelly, chili sauce and mustard with Buffalo chicken sausages for Christmas Eve snacking. As good as it sounds, the sausages were too mild and I would have been better off using the standard cocktail wienies.
Theedge ===I have to say I'm not a big hot dog fan, but the burrito/chimi dog holds some interest. How did you fry it? ===
I am the same with you, I consider hot dogs to be a delivery vehicle for playing with. I like this shot of pure deep-frying at its best. This site has caused me to deep-fry a lot of food. Somewhere I have previously posted a how-to with a hot-dog chile relleno.
joe- The Chimi dogs are the one case where I think that bacon doesn't belong. They have always been made that way. Tradition I guess... Bacon rarely shows up in burritos and I do not do wraps....unless there is a hot dog inside. And if I did that, it would be real good with bacon, and cheese and before you know it sonofagun, I made a wrap.
P.S. My food photos at home is where I practice with my camera to get the right shot. I have taken an incredible amount of bad shots at home. Better to practice here than in public. I finally got pizza right....
Regarding the pigs in a blanket, I will try them again using something besides Pillsbury/ refrigerated dough. I suggest that Pepperidge Farms puff pastry sheets, phyllo and even wonton skins be tried instead.
Chinese bakeries have a real good Sausage Roll which is a hot dog wrapped in brioche- like bread. They do not need ketchup or mustard.
