Family-friendly and delicious - the kids will thank you for this one!

Topped with bacon, cheese and all good things, these hotdogs are a quick and easy way to keep the family full.
  • 2 shallots, sliced into rings
  • 100ml red wine vinegar
  • 100ml water
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 200g smoked bacon lardons, optional
  • 50g butter
  • 50g plain flour
  • 250ml of milk
  • 1⁄2 tbsp English mustard
  • 1⁄2 tbsp Turmeric
  • 200g Belton Farm Red Fox cheese
  • 4 hot dog sausages (veggie or meat)
  • 4 sub rolls
1 green chilli, finely sliced
  • 15g chives, finely chopped
  • Crispy onions, optional

Add the onion slices to a small bowl. Heat up the red wine vinegar, water, sugar and salt on a medium heat until simmering. Pour over the onion slices and put to one side.

Add bacon pieces to a pan and fry until crispy and browned, for about 10 mins, drain on kitchen roll and put to one side. 

Meanwhile, make the cheese sauce. Add 50g of butter for a pan on a low heat and allow to melt. Once melted, add 50g of plain flour and whisk until a paste is created. 

Turn up to a medium heat and add the milk. Whisk until all the milk is combined and has created a thick sauce consistency. 

Whisk in the grated Red Fox cheese until melted and combined with the sauce and generously add salt and pepper.

Grill the hot dogs for five to seven minutes until browned and a little crispy (you can do this on the BBQ if the weather allows!). 

Add the sausages to the sub rolls. Top with a generous drizzle of the Red Fox cheese sauce. Finish with the bacon bits, quick pickled onions, chives, green chillies and crispy onions if using.
