Banh Mi Hot Dogs Recipe


Ingredients


  • 24 small new potatoes (2-3 per skewer)
  • 1 large carrot, peeled
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 chicken or pork sausages
  • 1 white baguette, cut into 4
  • 50g (1 3/4oz) mixed salad leaves
  • 1 tbsp basil leaves
  • 1 tbsp mint leaves
  • 1 tbsp coriander leaves
  • 4 tbsp sweet chilli dressing



Method


  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Soak 8 wooden skewers in water. Parboil the potatoes for 15 minutes, or until just tender. Drain; leave to cool.
  2. Meanwhile, use a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler to cut the carrot into long, thin ribbons. Cut the cucumber in half lengthways then into thin slices on the diagonal.
  3. Cook the sausages in the oven for 16-18 minutes, turning frequently, until cooked through. Preheat a barbecue or griddle pan and, once hot, char the sausages to your liking. Thread the potatoes onto skewers and barbecue or griddle for 5-6 minutes, turning frequently, until lightly charred.
  4. Cut a slit down each baguette piece and fill each with salad leaves, carrot, cucumber and herbs. Finish each with a sausage and a drizzle of the sweet chilli dressing. Serve with the potatoes and any extra salad.
