Loaded gourmet hot dogs recipe - The Community Leader and Real Estate New and Views

One of our favourite May events is Pups in the Park, so in honour of that, we’re giving you some inspiration to create your hot dog this month. You probably don’t need a recipe for this, but use it as inspiration to create your perfect hot dog! It’s easy and fun, and you can add any of your favourite toppings and be as creative as you like.


  • A hot dog bun for each person (or two)
  • A dash of olive oil
  • Butter
  • A beef or pork hot dog for each person
  • Shredded cheddar cheese – the more the merrier!
  • Onion cut into fine rings – fresh or fried
  • Chopped tomatoes
  • Jalapeños
  • Chopped and cooked crispy bacon
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato sauce, mustard, and any other tangy dressings you like
  • Optional extras: sauerkraut, relish, pickles, avocado,
    finely sliced spring onion, parsley.


  1. First, cook your hot dogs. Preheat a frypan with the olive oil to medium-high heat. Fry the hot dogs until they are nicely browned and cooked through (about five to seven minutes), turning occasionally. You can also gently boil your hot dogs on the stovetop to cook through if you prefer.
  2. While the hot dogs are cooking, prepare your toppings. Letting everyone add their toppings is fun, so assemble each ingredient in small bowls.
  3. Butter your bun. Place each hot dog in a bun, and while it’s hot, add a generous amount of shredded cheese on top of each hot dog. Then, layer the onions, lettuce, tomatoes, jalapeños and crispy bacon. Finish with a drizzle of tomato sauce, mustard, and any of your
    must-have condiments.
