We think we have the secret ingredients
for the best Hot Dogs Recipe EVER!

Are you ready to take the humble hot dog down to flavour town? Here at Pappy’s we take our food seriously, so don’t worry, we got you!

Check out our hot dogs recipe below with 8 tips for creating the very best hot dogs at home.

Pappy's Texas BBQ Hot Link Sausages

1. It's all about the sausage

Choose a high-quality sausage for the base of your Super Hot Dogs Recipe. Gourmet options like a smoked Cumberland Sausage or a Spicy Hot Link can elevate the flavour of your dog significantly. Why not double down on your meat and add a little Smoked Pulled Pork like we do here at Pappy’s?

2. Get Saucy

Mix up a BBQ mustard sauce: Combine equal parts of BBQ sauce and mustard for a tangy, sweet, and smoky flavour that complements the sausage perfectly. Other sauce ideas include sriracha mayo, garlic aioli, or a tangy relish.

3. Create some deep flavours

Add some pickled red onions for a sweet and tangy bite. Include diced pickles or relish for an extra layer of flavour. Consider adding other pickled vegetables like jalapeños, cucumbers, or even pickled carrots.

4. Add a little crunch

Top your hot dogs with some crispy fried onions for a satisfying crunch. Other crunchy options include fried jalapeño slices, crushed potato chips, or even crispy bacon bits.

5. Cheese, Please!

Melted cheese can take your hot dogs to the next level. Options include smoked cheddar, pepper jack, or even a creamy cheese sauce.

Sides and Slaw

6. Stack on Some Sides

Add a side of Authentic Texan slaw, either on the side or as a topping for a Southern twist. Pile on some freshly made guacamole for a creamy, flavourful addition. Fresh veggies like shredded lettuce, or thinly sliced radishes can add a fresh, crisp element.

7. Bun Selection

Don’t spend all that time on perfecting the contents of your hot dogs and then forget about the buns hun! Be sure to opt for a gourmet bun such as brioche roll to complement your toppings and sausage.

8. Finish with Flair

Top off your delicious hot dogs recipe with some fresh herbs like oregano, chives, or parsley. A drizzle of hot sauce or a sprinkle of chili flakes can add an extra spicy kick if you’re that way inclined!
