This is one of his BBQ favourites, the classic American style Hot Dog. Perfect for entertaining and popular with all ages.

Hot Dogs made using our big bangers; succulent extra large pork sausages served with sweetened balsamic onions and cheese makes for the perfect BBQ food.


  • 4 Big Bangers (or any sausages from our range)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • ½ tsp sugar
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ½ red pepper, sliced
  • ½ green pepper, sliced
  • seasoning to taste
  • 4 hot dog rolls
  • 2 tsp American style mustard
  • 100g Comté cheese, grated
  • Step 1 BBQ the sausages until golden brown, turning once. Remove from BBQ and set aside. Or if not using the BBQ fry the sausages in a little oil in a heavy based pan for 20 mins, then set aside.
  • Step 2 Heat a pan over a low heat and cook the onions in the olive oil until lightly browned and soft for 3-5 mins. Add the balsamic vinegar and sugar and cook for 1 minute. Add the garlic and sliced peppers and cook for another 5-7 minutes, or until softened. Season to taste.
  • Step 3 Slice each roll down the centre and spread one half with ½ tsp mustard. Sprinkle the grated cheese on both the cut sides of each roll. Place under a preheated grill (or on a lidded BBQ) for a few minutes just to slightly toast roll and melt the cheese.
  • Step 4 Fill each roll with a sausage and a dollop of the onion mixture.
