Cheese, Chilli, Fried onions. What more could one want on a hot dog? We’re sure Will Smith would agree.
- 45g butter
- 60ml (1/4 cup) cake flour
- 250ml (1 cup) milk
- 150g mature cheddar, grated
- 2,5ml (1/2 tsp) chilli powder
- Sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
- To serve
- 4 German-style hot-dog sausages
- 4 hot-dog buns
- Crispy fried onions
- Sliced dill pickles
- German mustard
For the chilli-Cheddar sauce, melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and combine to form a roux. Remove from heat and slowly add the milk, whisking while you go, to form a smooth paste. Add the remaining milk and return to the heat. Whisk until the sauce thickens, about 6 minutes. Add the cheese and chilli powder and season well to taste.
Boil the hot-dog sausages in water in a saucepan, 2 – 3 minutes.
Place a sausage in each bun, drizzle with crispy fried onions, sliced pickles and mustard.
