Atco Blue Flame Kitchen: Bacon-wrapped sausage dogs

  • Jun. 22, 2017 12:30 a.m.

Our Bacon-Wrapped Sausage Dogs take a traditional campfire classic to the next level. Instead of hot dogs, Italian sausages are wrapped with bacon and served in a baguette topped with Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, barbecue sauce and mustard. Impress your family and friends by making your own Yellow Mustard – it’s so easy you’ll wonder why you ever bought mustard in the first place!

Bacon-wrapped sausage dogs

1 baguette

Canola oil

8 slices bacon

4 mild Italian sausages (about 100 g each)

Deli Swiss cheese slices

Drained sauerkraut

Barbecue sauce

Yellow Mustard (recipe below)

1. Cut ends off of baguette and reserve for another use. Cut baguette crosswise into four pieces. Without cutting all the way through, cut each baguette piece in half lengthwise. Lightly brush oil over baguette pieces, including cut sides.

2. Open baguette pieces and grill over medium heat on natural gas barbecue, turning once, until lightly toasted. Remove from heat and set aside.

3. Beginning with 1 slice, wrap each sausage, spiral fashion, with 2 slices of bacon.

4. Grill bacon-wrapped sausages over medium heat, turning occasionally, until bacon is crisp and sausages are completely cooked, about 25 – 30 minutes.

5. Serve in baguette pieces with cheese, sauerkraut, barbecue sauce and Yellow Mustard. Makes 4.

Yellow Mustard:

1/3 cup mustard seed

1/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1/3 cup apple juice

1 tsp turmeric

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp cayenne pepper

3 tbsp warm water

To prepare, combine all Yellow Mustard ingredients except water in a glass or stainless steel bowl. Cover and refrigerate, stirring twice, for 2 days.

Transfer mixture to a blender. Add water and purée until smooth. Makes about 1 cup.
