 The Ultimate Sausage Hot Dog

What You’ll Need: 

For Caramelised Onions

– 2 tbsp olive oil
– 3 large onions (red or white), sliced
– Pinch of salt
– 2 tbsp soft brown sugar
– 1-2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

For Actual Hot Dog Roll

– Sausages (we like pork)
– Hot Dog Buns
– Your favourite Sauces

Method:

– Heat the oil in a large deep frying pan over a low heat.


– Add the onions with a generous pinch of salt and cook slowly for 30-40 mins. Stir occasionally to prevent them from sticking or burning until they become soft and golden. If the onions start to catch, add a splash of water to the pan and mix well.

– At the 30 minute mark you want to put your sausages on to cook as they will take about 15 minutes.


– Add the sugar and vinegar to give them a sweet, slightly sharp chutney flavour. Keep cooking on a low heat for another 5 mins, stirring occasionally until the mix is sticky, the sugar has dissolved and the vinegar has reduced.

– Add your sauce of choice to the bun

– Take your sausages off and put them in the bun 

– Add your caramelised onions on top

Enjoy!

– Put 1 biscuit on each piece of foil and top with 2 chunks of chocolate and a marshmallow. Place the other biscuit on top and wrap each parcel tightly.
