A recipe that has probably existed a long time, I edit little features of it to make my own unique taste. Read on if you like bacon.
In light of Shanus` recipe blog and others, I thought I would share how I regularly eat hotdogs.The Hot Dogs
Pretty much any kind of hotdog you want, since the recipe is open to modifications. I personally like the No-name brand beef hotdogs, as sneiders and some other brands just don't taste right. Usually it is because they have harder skin, and I don't want my hotdog to be crunchy.Other Ingredients
Bacon- Any type
Cheese - You're favourite
Mustard - Any brand
Hot Dog Buns - Any type and brand
Onions - Yellow or WhiteBegin Cooking
1. Pour 2 cups of water into a pot, and place your desired amount of hotdogs into the pot. Place the pot on the burner and place some tinfoil over the top, making sure it is tighly secure around the top. Poke some holes into the top of the tinfoil to let the steam out when it starts boiling.1.5:
Use a cheese slicer or a knife to cut off desired portions of cheese to line the hotdog buns with later.
2. As the pot is healing up, take out a decent size portion of bacon and begin to chop it up into fine squares or rectangles
3. Then chop the onion into fine squares, or long ring shapes, whichever you like best.
4. Use a seperate stove burner, place a clean frying pan on it, with the heat setting at around medium. Even though bacon doesn't require it, place down a good chunk of butter in the pan anyways. As it is heating up place you're finely sliced bacon into the pan of sizzling butter. Spread the bacon out evenly as to make sure they are all cooking. This is a good time to use some generic meat seasoning salt to season the bacon.
5. By now the pot should be boiling and you're hotdogs cooking. Take X amount of buns out (for however many hotdogs you are going to have) and open them up. Place them on top of the tin foil on top of the pot, thus steaming the buns. It usually takes around 1-2 minutes on each side to have perfectly done steammed buns. Caution: Any longer than this and there is a strong possibility you're hotdog buns will turn mushy and moist from the steam and be ruined.
6. By now the bacon should be close to being done, depending on whether you like crunchy bacon, soft bacon, or somewhere inbetween. Remove bacon from pan and steammed hotdog buns from pot.Preparation
After removing the buns, open them up and place the strips of cheese into the bottom of them.
The next step is to use a butterknife or the bottle and put down a good sized portion of mustard on the buns.
Place the hotdogs onto the buns.
Put down the onions into the hotdog buns, after the hotdog is properly seated (and strapped in).
Next shower the entire hotdog bun with the bacon.
All the steps in this recipe are of course optional and modifyable. I also like to cut a pickle in half and periodically take bites of it while eating the hotdog. The recipe above is not unheardof and is pretty common, I just developed my own style of making it, that alters the taste, which I guess could be considered a new recipe.
I sincerely believe putting ketchup on a hotdog destroys the hotdog taste, which is why it isn't included in this recipe.
If you don't like mustard, I guess it is you're duty to flame me.
I eat this recipe of hotdogs all the time, I think it is amazingly scrumptious.
