Italian Style Hot Dog
Italian Style Hot Dog
Have you ever heard of anStyle Hot Dog? When I was a kid growing up in New Jersey an hot dog was one of my favorite meals. If you love hot dogs, this gourmet hot dog is one you should try.
First you start with a good quality hot dog. I go to a German butcher who makes his own hot dogs, or I should say wieners. These hot dogs are very tasty and are made with casings. A casing is usually made of animal intestine, used to contain the meat. I know that sounds gross, but don’t think about it. If you prefer a hot dog without casings try a Nathan or a Hebrew National hot dog or a Casper hot is another good one with a casing. They even have tasty low fat dogs for those on a diet.
The next important ingredient is the bun. No, not that ordinary air bread bun that you get at your local grocery store. This bun must be made of Italian bread baked the same day that you will eat it. The perfect bread is shaped like a flying saucer or it looks like pita bread. If you are lucky enough to find this unique shaped bread you are well on your way to making an Italianhot dog.
However, I must warn you, I have been searching for this style Italian bun for 20 years in California and have not found it yet. I resorted to making my own using my pizza dough recipe. You can find my pizza dough recipe by searching for some of my other recipes on Ezine Articles.
After baking your bun, cut your Italian bread in half. You now have a piece shaped like a half moon. Gently open the center of the bread with a knife and create a pocket for your hot dog.
The other ingredients you will need are:
Chop your onions and green peppers and sauté them in a few tablespoons of olive oil. Chop your potatoes to look like home fries. You can fry them in olive oil or a faster way is to roast them in the oven. I usually coat the potatoes with olive oil and put them in the oven on broil for about 10 minutes. Watch them closely; they will burn fast if you are not careful.
The hot dog is steamed not boiled in water. Use a steamer or create one with a small upside down metal bowl inside of a pot with a lid. Let the water come to a boil and cook for about 5 minutes and then turn off the burner. If you are using a hot dog with a casing, be sure not to let the hot dog split. This will result in a tasteless hot dog, because all the juices that were contained in the casing have drained into the pot.
Now you are ready to load on the mustard and stuff your bun with the hot dog and top it with peppers, onions and potatoes. Hmm… you will love it!
