How to prepare the grill for the hot dogs?
For those who don’t know yet, the best way to cook hotdogs is on the grill, not boiled in water as many may think. Also, do not neglect to prepare the grill before tossing those on top. Make sure the grates are clean from the previous grill session. If you intend to prepare the hot dogs on the grill pan as I did, use a non-stick pan or spray some cooking spray.
Always preheat the grill or the grill pan for a few minutes before starting to cook. The heat level also matters when it comes to cooking the dogs. While you shouldn’t shy away from high heats since you want to achieve that covered in char on the outside, you also don’t wanna burn the franks before the insides have cooked all the way through. Therefore, heat well the grill pan on medium heat.
What are the best sausages for the hotdogs?
Despite the fact that hotdogs are part of the casual food category, that doesn’t mean you should choose the cheapest sausages.
As you already know, the simpler the dish, the more important is the quality of the ingredients you choose. There is a wide range of hot dogs sausage available on the market. It can be chicken, turkey, pork or beef. With all the choices out there go with your taste preference. Keep in mind that if you choose the inexpensive ones, they may come with tons of sodium and lots of preservatives. Good quality sausage is more nuanced flavoured and has fewer artificial additives.
How to make hot-dogs at home?
When you have already chosen what kind of sausage you would use, the bread, and all the rest of the ingredients for the fillings the best-enjoying process is coming.
Grease some butter on one side of the baguette or poppy buns and grill them for 2 minutes. Meanwhile, grill the sausages to obtain those aromatic, flavorful, crispy sausages with the best taste. Adding some crunchy bacon is optional, but I love that mix of bacon with pickles topped on the sausage. For note: you can make the bacon a day before, or you can fry it at the time you are preparing the hot-dog. Both versions are okay because it doesn’t need to be hot.
On a cutting board cut the onion and the pickles. When the ingredients have already grilled start layering them. Open up the bread and grease on one side some mayo and on the other side some mustard. Top the sausage and fill it with delicious, crunchy toppings. Give squirt of some ketchup other the sausage. So simple and easy that you will love doing them more often for you and your kids. Serve these best hot-dogs with homemade French fries, dips of homemade sauces, of a green salad.
And that, my friends, is all of creating a yummy, delicious, homemade hot-dog!
How to grill the hot dogs?
Hotdogs are small portions of meat that means they usually cook at a glance. They can get burned or cook unevenly that’s why It’s crucial that you pay attention to them during cooking. Be sure to be moving the hot dogs frequently using tongs or a spatula so that every side gets cooked evenly by the heat.
How to preserve hot-dogs?
The grilled and stuffed hot dog must be consumed immediately as served. That is the main characteristic of street food, it is ready in only a couple of minutes, yet, it cannot be stored in the fridge. By doing so, the food will harden and will lose its flavours, You can, of course, reheat it, however, be prepared to feel a totally different taste, not as scrumptious as you might expect.
