Pair your beer with this easy hot dog recipe topped with caramelised onion, from Taste.
Cook time: 20 minutes Serves: 6
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 Italian Pork Sausages
- 2 brown onions, halved, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon fennel seeds
- 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
- 6 hot dog rolls
- 2 tablespoons tomato chutney or relish
- 60g pkt Australian Baby Rocket
- 200g brie, thinly sliced
Heat half the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. (Alternatively, preheat a barbecue grill or chargrill on medium.) Add sausages and cook, turning occasionally, for 8-10 mins or until browned all over and cooked through. Transfer to a plate.
Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and fennel seeds. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 mins or until golden and starting to caramelise. Add the sugar and vinegar and cook for a further 1 min or until caramelised. If you’re using the Kleenmaid 90cm GCTEK9020 electronic gas cooktop, you’ll find that the cooktop also features auto reignition. This means if the flame is extinguished the cooktop will reignite itself after determining that it is safe to do so. Such a neat feature!
Use a serrated knife to split each roll lengthways (don’t cut all the way through). Spread each roll with the chutney or relish. Divide the rocket, brie, sausages and onion mixture evenly among rolls. Season to taste!
