My husband Peter is a pecatarian, and I don’t eat pork so when it comes to hot dogs ours are of the veggie variety.
…One rare Saturday a few weeks ago when my folks took the kids out for the day, the husband and I had a date day where we happily tucked into tasty ‘dawgs’, chomped freshly popped popcorn drizzled in honey and watched Pretty Woman (my choice). Bliss.
These bad boys are super quick, easy and lip lickingly good, so if you like your ‘dogs’ grown in fields, these are for you!
Check out these veggie hot dogs, lush huh?!
We rarely eat bread but my Mum had dropped off some French baguette from a local farmer’s market so we made an exception and it was worth it. Scrumptious!
Here’s the recipe:
Makes 4 dogs:
- White onion slices
- 4 tablespoons mild olive oil
- You could make your own sausages but we like Quorn gluten-free sausages
- Hot dog buns or we used French stick
- Tomato ketchup
- Mustard sauce (optional)
In a small pan, fry the sliced onions in 2 tablespoons of mild olive oil for 5 minutes until translucent and a little crispy.
In a medium pan, fry the sausages for 4-5 minutes in 2 tablespoon of olive oil or grill (brushing them with oil) at 180°c for 20 minutes.
Chop the bread and cut into 2 halves. Butter and spread tomato sauce & mustard sauce on the lower half.
