Fancy Hot Dog Things | frites & fries

I normally eat hot dogs only when the situation is appropriate for it: kooky hot dog joints (I’m still dying to go to Wiener’s Circle), camping, and baseball games. I have been having a really strong hot dog craving lately though! (No, I’m not pregnant.) The problem is, I hate making it only because I really hate buying wieners/franks and hot dog bun: I always end up with a lot of moldy extra hot dog buns. If you didn’t know already, hot dog wieners/franks usually come in packages of ten even though hot dog bun usually comes in packages of eight. I mean, it makes no sense! BUT, this problem can be solved with the latest innovation in hot dog technology. You will never have to buy a hot dog bun again. See?

What is it? They’re hot dog thingys on a stick, of course!

It’s a hot dog…on a stick…with pastry around it. Well, I thought it looked pretty cool.

For eight hot dogs:

  • 1 sheet puff pastry (defrosted)
  • 8 hot dogs
  • 1 egg
  • salt
  • pepper

Preheat the oven to 400F. Put the hot dog on wooden skewers; cut thin 1/2-1cm thick strips of puff pastry on the shortest side of the pastry sheet. Beat the egg in a small bowl and add some salt and pepper to it. Brush the egg mixture on the pastry part of the hot dog.

Bake for about ten minutes until the pastry turns golden brown.

Note: I used veggie dogs — I like them better than “real” hot dogs. When I was a vegetarian, I had a pretty serious addiction to those hot dogs. I swear, you cannot taste a difference. It’s all processed anyways, right?
