Hot Dogs With Caramelised Onions And Blue Cheese

A quick and simple last minute dinner dish. You can use any kind of sausage meat you prefer. I made this recipe for 2 people, so if you are making for more or less people, adjust quantities accordingly. You need not add all of the ingredients or sauces, just choose the ones you like and omit the others or add in some of your favourites instead.

Ingredients:
hot dog buns
sausages
mustard sauce
ketchup
butter
blue cheese
tabasco
2 large onions
jalapenos from a jar
1 tsp brown sugar or regular sugar
2 tsps balsamic vinegar
2 tsps pomegranate molasses
salt to taste


Method:
To caramelize the onions; chop the onions in half rings. Sauté the onions in a little oil or butter. Add the sugar, vinegar, pomegranate molasses and a pinch of salt. Fry till the onions get a nice deep brown colour. For an extra kick, drizzle a few dots of tabasco or your favourite chilli sauce. Set aside.

Place the sausages in a pot of water and boil for 5 mins. Drain and then fry on a low heat with a little oil till nice and golden. Remove and set aside.

Butter the hot dog buns and place in an oven proof tray. Spread one side with mustard and the other with ketchup. Add a few of the caramelized onions then place the sausage on top. Top with more onions, jalapenos, tabasco (if you like more spice) and blue cheese.

Set the oven to broil (where only the top grill of the oven works). Place the hot dogs in the oven for about 5 mins. Watch and check till the bread is golden and the cheese has melted.
