I love this recipe because it can be prepped ahead and it's super easy to make. It also makes something as simple as a hot dog look and taste unbelievable.

Technique tip: A hot dog will start to split if over-cooked and you will see a lot of fat in the water.

Swap option: You can swap hot dog for a sausage or basically any other protein will be awesome in this recipe.

Ingredients

  • Pickled Vegetables (makes 1 cup)

    • 1/2 cup shredded or julienned carrots
    • 1/2 cup shredded or julienned daikon radish
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • Sandwich

    • 1 French baguette, cut to hot-dog size
    • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
    • 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce
    • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire
    • 1 hot dog, preferably with natural casing
    • Canola oil
    • Pickled vegetables (recipe above)
    • 4 to 5 slices cucumber
    • 4 to 5 pieces thinly sliced jalapeño
    • 4 to 5 sprigs cilantro

Preparation

For the pickled vegetables:

Combine all the ingredients in a container and cover. Let sit for at least 1 hour.

For the sandwich:

1. Slice baguette and remove the inner bread. Spread mayo on both sides. Sprinkle soy sauce and Worcestershire.
