5 ideas to take a lazy hot dog dinner to the next level

Who can resist a quick-and-easy hot dog dinner that doesn’t compromise on flavour? Not us.


1 Everything must go… gourmet

There’s nothing like chunky caramelised onions and chilli salsa made from scratch to dress up an everyday dog. Serve hot with whole grain mustard and fresh rocket leaves.

2. An original German hot dog

Keep things traditional with tempura-battered onion rings, gherkins, sauerkraut and tomato sauce.

3. Get hot and messy

Sometimes only a hot, saucy mess will do. This is the kind of hot dog we need on a Friday night.

4. Invoke travel with toppings

Take your taste buds on a trip with a Tex Mex, New York, Japanese or Argentinian-inspired dog. We’re talking sweet paprika, crème fraîche, sour cream, diced exotic tomato and more other-worldly flavours.

5. Feed your cravings

Nachos, Asian or local-and-lekker? No matter the craving, we’ve got a quick-fix topping that will satisfy it.

Serving Suggestion

Score and pan-fry your viennas and place them on a hot dog roll.

Mexican nachos: Top that bun off with mozzarella, salsa, scooped avo and coriander.

A (fast) German affair: Add sauerkraut, hot mustard, and sliced gherkins, and serve with a side of potato salad.

For an eastern treat: Load your dog with an Asian slaw and seaweed snacks.

Have all the chakalaka: Heat your chakalaka and top your hot dog with a generous amount and add some chakalaka chips for good measure.
