Hot Dog Recipe

Although I have always been very intrigued by the origin of the name hot dogs, I have never bothered to investigate. I was just imagining a dachshund between two slices of bread while I smirked.

The case is that it goes and it turns out that there are at least two theories. The simple one, which talks about a mid-century rumor XIX who claimed they were made from stray dog ​​meat and the anecdote, which tells how a New Jersey comedian came up with the term during a baseball game, while a vendor bellowed something like "Get a dachshund (dachshund in German and name of the sausage in his honor, although that's another story) very hot ”

Ingredients for 2 hot dogs

2 Wiener or Frankfurt sausages, 2 long rolls, half an onion, 1 green pepper, 2 slices of bacon, ketchup and American mustard

Preparation of hot dogs

Actually, the original hotdogs are only made up of the sausage and the bun, accompanied by some kind of sauce, such as ketchup and mustard, but I wanted to do something a little more elaborate, to complete its unmistakable flavor.

The first thing to do is chop the onion, the pepper and the bacon, all very fine. Then we fry everything in very hot oil, except the bacon, which we will brown in a frying pan by itself.

As the pieces are very small, I recommend that you use a strainer to be able to “rescue” them from the oil.

Once we have the companions ready, we toast the bread a little on the grill and mark the sausages so that they acquire a more appetizing appearance and, by the way, they heat up.

Finally, we place the sausage on the bun and top with a little onion, pepper and bacon. As a final touch, a good dose of ketchup and mustard.

Processing time | 15 minutes
Difficulty | Easy


The ideal is to accompany these hot dogs with some fried potatoes and a very cold cola. If you close your eyes, the taste will transport you to a New York stall overlooking Central Park, guaranteed.
