Serves 4

Preheat the barbecue to a medium-high heat. Place 4 good-quality pork sausages on the barbecue until completely cooked throughout. Place the sausages in 4 split hot dog buns and top with fried onions and peppers. Drizzle over some American-style mustard and serve.


  • Instead of good old Irish sausages, try German bratwurst, Italian sausage (either sweet or hot), Polish kielbasa, Spanish chorizo, American hot dogs, French Morteau, Cajun andouille or our own black pudding. Don’t eat meat? Cook prawns on skewers and then slide them off into your bun. For a vegetarian version, try veggie sausages or strips of Halloumi.

  • Replace the traditional soft bun with crusty rolls, croissants (yes, really!), crunchy lettuce leaves, small soft tortilla wraps or stand-and-stuff taco shells.
