Gourmet Hot Dog: The Dixie Dog
Something has to compensate for the sweltering heat of the deep south, or no one would want to live there. The compensating factor? The food. Southerners know how to keep their tastebuds happy by using the deep fryer as a magical cauldron of Dixieland delights. Now you can bring a little southern charm to your kitchen by putting together a hot dog that honors some of the South's most beloved cuisine.
Typically, we recommend all-beef franks. To ensure the complete flavor of the deep south, a pork frank will really compliment the other ingredients.
- 1 package hot dogs, pork
- 1 package hot dog buns
- 1 package fried chicken strips, frozen
- 1 package fried okra, frozen
- 1 container potato salad, for ease of prep, get one from the deli at your grocery store
- 1 bottle BBQ sauce
- 1 can cooking spray
- Cook the frozen fried chicken strips per instructions. Set aside when done.
- Cook the frozen fried okra per instructions. Set aside when done.
- In a skillet over medium heat, begin cooking the hot dogs, rolling frequently for even cooking.
- When the hot dogs are nearly done, push to one side of the skillet. Spray the buns with cooking spray. Lay each bun on its side in the skillet for 20 seconds, repeat on opposite side for another 20 seconds. Pull buns slightly apart and place in the skillet like a pup tent for an additional 20 seconds to warm the inside.
- Place a frank in each bun. add BBQ sauce. Lay in several chicken strips. Spoon in as much potato salad as the bun can reasonably hold. Top with fried okra.
- For a complete southern feel, serve with sweetened iced tea.
