Sometimes I’m in the mood for a simple hot dog. This is a food from my childhood which brings back happy memories: Hot dogs on the barbecue, hot dogs in squishy buns at a baseball game, hot dogs sliced and added to baked beans with gooey melted cheese on top… As a pescetarian it’s not as easy as it used to be to have hot dogs. Until now!!

Sainsbury’s Meatfree Hot Dog Sausages are fantastic! They are found in the frozen food aisle, and cost only £1.85 for 10 hot dogs.  They are made from a blend of soya and wheat proteins, and yet manage to have the right consistency without all the icky stuff found in regular hot dogs (I don’t even want to go there). They aren’t the healthiest meat substitute on the block, but they’re not bad either (think orange on the stop-light chart), and whoever thought hot dogs were a health food anyway?!

Meatfree Hot Dog Sausages Smothered in Fried Onions and Cheese

This past 4th of July I thought it was appropriate to have an American themed meal. I made hot dogs smothered in fried onions and cheese, and covered with French’s Yellow Mustard and Heinz Ketchup. I served this with a salad and some baked beans. It was a very yummy, comforting, home-y meal. I always keep a box of these in my freezer.
