When you've had a few too many ciders the night before, there's really not a lot you can do to stop that squeamish feeling in your tum. Salty, buttery, carb-dense or greasy fried foods are the only things that seem to be able to take away the hangover blues. Today, I whipped up these dirty dogs and the house full of sad and sorry post-partiers seemed to perk up as soon as they smelt the buns browning and bacon sizzling. Here's what you'll need:
1 onion, diced
8 rashers short cut bacon, diced
Cheddar cheese, grated
Sauces of your choice
Start by boiling a pot of water for your hot dogs. Once you've thrown them in, start frying the chopped onion and bacon together in 1 tsp oil. Hot dogs are done when they float to the top, kids.
Once the dogs are done, you can leave them in the hot water while you grill the inside of the buttered buns. Don't be stingy with the yellow stuff, you're gonna need all the grease you can get! The reason I pre-butter the buns before grilling is because it gives the bread the most palate-pleasing effect - soft, buttery and no crumbs all over your clothes...
Pull the buns from the oven and pile the dogs with your bacon/onion mix, cheese and sauces...
Then, enjoy! This is Elphin by the way - whenever there's food around, so is he...
