Breakfast hot dogs. A few months ago I watched Ina Garten grill up a Sunday breakfast feast and promptly bookmarked her sausage breakfast hotdogs. Served up with some country fried potatoes on a beautiful sunny Memorial Day morning was a perfect holiday treat.
I started out by thinly slicing some potatoes for some good old-fashioned fried potatoes just like my mom used to do. I fried them in a combination of olive oil and bacon fat and with a dusting of salt and pepper and they needed nothing else. Crispy brown on the outside, tender on the inside. Mmm..waaa!
Meanwhile out on the grill were the sizzling spinach and feta flavored chicken sausages waiting to be drizzled with the star of this meal…Ina’s Mustard and Mayo sauce . It’s a luxurious white creamy mayo, sour cream mixture with a hint of tangy mustard. This sauce would make a shoe taste good.
Before I share the recipe, let’s talk about sour cream. A couple of months ago when posting a recipe that included sour cream, I received an email from Cathy over at Noble Pig saying “all sour creams are not created equal”. Hmm…never really thought about it. She continued that she always buys the high quality Tillamook brand. Not having Tillamook available (darn it), I did indeed study sour creams the next time I was at the market. I bought Wallaby brand and the difference between it and the run of the mill product from Safeway was like night and day…and only for about a dollar more. It had a consistency comparable to Greek Yogurt and a creamy richer flavor.
Ok, back to the breakfast, here’s Ina’s recipe.
Ina’s Grilled Chicken Sausage with Mustard Mayo:
Good Quality Chicken Sausages, served on buns like a hot dog and topped with mustard mayo.
1 1/2 cups good mayonnaise
3 Tbs Dijon mustard
1 1/2 Tbs whole-grain mustard
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 tsp kosher salt
1. Whisk the mayonnaise, mustards, sour cream and salt together in a small bowl. Serve at room temperature.
Ok, I’m serving it up, do you want your poached egg on your potatoes?
Or on your hot dog?
