The Dog Hot









Would you check this out! This is one serious hot dog, but wait it's not your usual hot dog. It's what I call a Dog Hot! Every mouthful encapsulated in fresh bread and it's hot all the way through. That's why I call it a Dog Hot! P.S. don't burn your tongue ;)
For the Bread Dough
  • 5 cups Bread Flour
  • 500 mls of Water
  • 2 teaspoons of Dried Yeast
  • Passion with a love of Hot Dogs
Place all ingredients in a good stand alone mixer, attach dough hook and mix for a good 4 - 5 Min's on slow speed. Stop mixer and touch dough with finger tip. If it is sticky add a little more flour and mix until combined well. Keep testing as needed. When your finger comes away from the dough without it sticking you have finished. Pull from mixer and knead on a floured surface by hand for a couple of Min's. Then place on a lined baking tray on top of warming oven at 200 degrees. Cover with a tea towel and leave to rise for 30 Min's.
Once risen place dough on a floured surface. Don't worry if it seems really soft, stretchy and sticky a bit. Give it a quick Knead and roll out into a very large rectangle.
Basically use your imagination and create the Dog Hot of your choice. I filled mine with cheese, half mix of grated tasty and mozzarella, grilled bacon, caramelised onions, skinless Frankfurt's, tomato sauce and American mustard. After you have filled them like the photos above, roll them into a large sausage shape encapsulating all of the filling. Then cut into Hot Dog length rolls. Place in a lined tray snuggled up together. Brush with a little milk and top with sesame seeds. Bake in an oven for 35 Min's on 210 degrees Celsius. Then turn off your oven and allow to sit in the remaining heat for 15 Min's. Then eat at will. Fantastic, the kids loved them and my biggest fan David ate 2 and a 1/2 of them. I planned these out in my head a couple of days ago and I am really glad that they turned out so well. Would be great party food to, cut into small dogs for finger food.
