Okay chill, there is actually no dog in this combo, in case you don’t like dog meat…I heard it is delicious, by the way. It is your good old sausage boiled or grilled and sandwiched in an oblong bread bun. It is equally not hot because by the time you finish the preparation, it will definitely have cooled down.
Let’s make some hot dog and cabbage combo for the kids and get them happy for the resumption to school. This is an easy one to rustle up once again. Just buy the sausages and the bread bun, that is those oblong shaped bread that is often called hot dog bread
(if you can’t find it, worry the baker near you to start making it.)
The sautéed onions and cabbage adds to the taste and is at least a little vegetable partner to the combo, which is finished off with a swirl of ketchup. If you don’t like ketchup, not a problem, the ones on the sides are for you.
Well, as schools are resuming, seems some have already resumed and it is time again to start thinking of school snacks, lunchbox meals and such stuff. I’ve got an email of some weekly ideas that I will be sending to my subscribers, so feel free to subscribe if you are interested in more tips and exclusives.
Recipe for Hot Dog and Cabbage Combo
Ingredients: (vary quantity to your choice)
- 3 Sausages
- 3 Hot Dog Bread/Bun
- 1 Small sized cabbage or cut out some quarters from a bunch
- 1 small white onions – you can use the red ones too but white is preferable
- 1 tablespoon seasoning powder or 1/2 seasoning cube
- Ketchup – optional
- Cayenne Pepper – optional
- 1 tablespoon oil
- Grill the sausages in the oven till its done. You can alternatively boil in water for about 10 minutes and drain.
- Cut onions and cabbages very thinly. It makes it look better and easily fit into the buns.
- Pour oil in a pan and add the onions. Fry for about a minute or till translucent and add the cabbage with the seasoning. Sauté together, stirring continuously till the cabbage softens well. Check for taste and remove from heat.
- Take out your bun and make a slit in the middle with a knife, if it is not the pre-slit version that you bought. Add the sautéed cabbage in to the opening, then put the grilled sausage and top up with ketchup. You can also alternate by putting the sausage first and topping with the sautéed cabbage and ketchup.
- Ready for breakfast or wrap for the lunchbox.
Note: If you are really unable to find the hot dog bread around you, then feel free to recreate this with the normal sliced bread. You may have to slit the cabbage vertically first and then cut it into half again to fit into the slice of bread. You can also chop in circles and form a ‘carpet’ on the sliced bread before topping with the sautéed cabbage and ketchup.
