I have three children, so I am sure everyone will understand that I made quite a few hot dogs in my life. I know hotdogs are not very healthy, but you can feed quite a number of children on a packet of Viennas, a dozen or two hotdog rolls and a bottle of tomato sauce. My children did not enjoy sleeping out themselves, but they loved to arrange sleepovers at our house, so this happened almost every Friday night. BlondieGirl, especially, was never happy with inviting only one, two or six friends over; she always had to have almost a dozen. Her excuse was always but she cannot decide who to leave out.
I do not particularity like or hate hotdogs but I think everyone needs I could hotdog “recipe” for Saturday afternoons or Friday evenings! So, here is my recipe and I hope everyone will enjoy it as much as my family does! It is quick to prepare and goes well with a beer or two.
- 4 red onions
- 45ml olive oil
- 60ml balsamic vinegar
- 12 bockwurst (I used Woolworth’s German sausages)
- 1 x 250g streaky bacon
- 12 crispy rolls (I used Woolworth’s individual baguettes)
- Dijon mustard
- Pre-heat the oven to 180⁰C.
- Peel the onions, quarter and half each quarter. Place the onions on a baking try and drizzle with the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Bake in the pre-heated oven for 45 minutes.
- Roll one piece of bacon around each sausage and place the wrapped sausages on a baking tray. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, turn over and bake for another 10 minutes.
- In the mean time cut the rolls open and butter. Place some rocket leaves into the roll.
- As soon as the wrapped sausages are cooked place one into each roll and top with the cooked red onions.
- Serve with the Dijon mustard on the side. This is absolutely delicious!
