How to make the perfect hot dog at home?
Though there are millions of posts available on the internet with perfect hot dog recipes, you should know that there is no perfect recipe. Everything depends on how the cook makes it. Some prefer ketchup, some mustard; while some use hot sauce, but there is no recipe to make a perfect hotdog. The best way you can cook a hotdog is to follow the process thoroughly and use the correct ingredients. Following are some of the steps we would like to recommend you follow if you want to make some good homemade hot dog recipes.
- Start by choosing a good hotdog sausage. Choose a dog that weighs between 1.2 and 1.5 ounces. Because the last thing you want in your hotdog is too heavy to be too hot and too hot to be too thick.
- Marinate the sausage for at least 30 minutes, though it will be better if you marinate it overnight. This will help seal the juices of the meat preventing burning issues during cooking.
- Use the best sauce for your dogs. Try to get a paste of some of the best hot sauces available in the market, but make sure that the spiciness is in control.
- Put the sausages on a grill in medium heat and make sure they are being thoroughly cooked.
- Grill them at least for 3 to 5 minutes on each side in around 360 degrees. This will make the sausages tender and cook them from all sides. Even if you are using onions with your hotdogs, it will give the onions a nice caramelized look.
- Turn the sausages over after 3 minutes and cook for another 4 to 5 minutes to get a nice grilled look on them.
- Now, take the sausages off the grill and let them cool for at least 10 minutes. This will allow the dogs to cool enough so you can wrap them in a lettuce leaf or put them inside your hotdog bun with some toppings like mustard, ketchup, onion, chili, jalapeño, etc.
Some tips to make your hotdog recipes perfect:
Here are some tips for your perfect homemade hot dog recipes:
- When grilling the sausages, make sure you use a non-stick grill. This will help the sausages to brown evenly.
- Always preheat the grill and ensure that the sausages are being grilled evenly and not getting burnt. Preheat the grill for 5 minutes.
- When grilling the sausages, make sure the grill is on medium heat. Use tongs to flip and turn the sausages while grilling.
- During the grilling, make sure the oil temperature is 375 degrees. And, if you are using the grill pan, keep the oil temperature at 325 degrees.
- Once done, serve your beautiful hotdogs on a nice plat and amazon your guests and family members with your cooking skills.
