This is one of our family’s favourite BBQ recipes. This invention came about when we were trying to perfect some campfire food for an upcoming camping trip, giving us the perfect excuse to fire up the BBQ. This is a perfect weekend activity for the whole family to enjoy, the kids loved finding sticks and making the bread dough, almost as much as the dads enjoy making and cooking over a fire. It really is as simple as wrapping dough around your sausage to make a giant hot dog bread on a stick! Plus, no fancy BBQs are needed for this recipe, you can just do it on a campfire, or with a basic beginners BBQ. Enjoy!
– 1 pack of Jolly Hog Jolly Dogs
– 4 cups flour (we used spelt but plain flour is great too)
– 4 tsps baking powder
– 1/2 cup olive oil
– 1/2 cup warm water
– 2 tsps salt
– The kids loved getting messy making the dough, which we did simply by combining all of the ingredients and kneading until smooth and pliable.
– Next up we got the kids finding sticks to use. They need to be the size of a Jolly Dog sausage, in order to then stuff one in there.
– Once you’ve found your sticks, cover the ends with aluminium foil (just enough that you cover the length of a hot dog).
– Next, roll your strips of the bread dough around the stick, trying to spread it as evenly as you can. Even if it’s messy, it still tastes as good!
– Hold your dough sticks above the glowing coals of the BBQ and keep turning them until they are even and cooked through.
– In the mean time, add a pack of our Jolly Dog sausages to the BBQ and let the sizzling hot dogs cook.
– Once the bread has cooled slightly, take your bread end off of the stick, sliding it out. You should now have the perfect sausage shaped hole to fill with your Jolly Dog! Dip or drizzle with lashings of ketchup or mustard!
