A pimped hotdog is not your average sausage in a bun. Here's a recipe for when you're feeling fancy, pimped with avocado, tomato, onion, jalapeno chilli, mayo and mustard. Just make sure you have squeezy bottles of mustard, mayo and chilli sauce to hand for a little extra pimping.

Ingredients

4 frankfurters, chorizo or bratwurst

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1 avocado, peeled and diced

1 tomato, seeded and diced

1 tbsp finely diced red onion

1 tbsp jalapeno chillies

2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

1 tsp ground cumin

sea salt

pepper

1 tbsp lime juice

4 hotdog buns, warmed

1 tbsp mayo for the rolls

4 baby cos lettuce leaves

 

Method

1. Brush the dogs with 1 tbsp of the oil and grill or pan-fry until completely heated through.

2. Combine the diced avocado, tomato, onion, jalapeno chillies, coriander, cumin, sea salt and pepper. Add lime juice and remaining olive oil and toss well.

3. Split each warmed bun from the top, not the side. Brush the inside with mayo and line with lettuce. Place the dog on top, and spoon the salsa on top.

4. Squeeze-stripe with your choice of American mustard, Japanese mayonnaise and/or Sriracha chilli sauce and serve.
