Spicy Slaw Hot Dogs

Tuesday 4 September 2018

I am a HUGE fan of Hot Dogs.  Yes, I know they are not so good for you, and that I probably don't want to know what all goes into them.  I don't care.  Every once in a while I really need to/gotta have a hot dog! When I first moved over here to the UK, it was really difficult for me to find hotdogs. In fact I remember being really disappointed when we were in London and I saw a hot dog cart and the hotdog ended up being a sausage.  Bleh . . . thankfully things have improved greatly since then and you can find hotdogs all over the place. My favourites are the All Beef Hot Dogs you can buy at Costco.

Growing up we always had hot dogs for supper on Friday nights. My mom made the best hot dogs.  She had a special grill that she would do them on, and the hotdogs would get all crispy and browned on all sides. (Boiled hotdogs don't do it for me, I like 'em grilled!)  She also toasted the buns on the grill and they were fabulous. My favourites were when she split the wieners and they got all toasty brown in the middles also. YUM!   Yes, I am somewhat of a connoisseur when it comes to hotdogs!

Which is why when I found this recipe for Korean Slaw Dogs, I knew I had to make them!  I am also a HUGE fan of coleslaw so this was right up my alley.  Slaw and hotdogs, you can't get much better than that!

Oh yes you CAN!  Especially when the slaw has been infused with Korean flavours . . . Sriracha sauce, rice wine vinegar, toasted sesame oil, ginger, mustard and brown sugar . . .  seriously tasty and filled with lovely crunchy vegetables!   So good with the smokiness of the hotdog!

But that's not all . . .  there are two delicious homemade condiments as well  . . .  a rocking spicy tomato ketchup and a hot and spicy mustard . . .  Korean style!!

I like to toast the buns and I use a brioche bun because I really, really like Brioche Buns!

The grilled wiener gets laid in the bun on a bed of spicy Kimchi pickle . . .  and then topped with that gorgeous slaw  . . .

And drizzled with those fabulous condiments  . . .  which are really delicious in their own right.  Trust me on this.

So what did I serve them with?  Tater-Tots of course! MMMM . . .  a feast!

  1. I think you brought the hot dog up to a whole new level:)

  2. I know they're not good for you. I don't care. I love them too! The first time I had a slaw dog was in South Carolina and since then I've loved doing slaw on dogs (and burgers). This looks like a really terrific recipe. Amping up the game!

    1. Guilty as charged right along with you Jeanie! Every once in a while I crave a good hotdog! xoxo
