Theae are great. They make a good BBQ dish, a light lunch or part of a great dinner. I love curry wurst so this is a dish that's made a lot. Zaar Worl Tour 05

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 slices white bread, large thin slices
  • german sweet mustard or german medium-hot mustard
  • curry ketchup (optional)
  • 6 frankfurters or 6 bratwursts
  • 3 gherkins, cut in slivers
  • 1 34 ounces butter, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut the crusts from the bread and using a rolling pin, roll to make the bread a little pliable.
  3. Spread thinly with the mustard making sure it reaches the edges evenly, then drizzle over a little curry ketchup, if used.
  4. Place a Frankfurter at the top end and tuck in a couple or more the gherkin slices.
  5. Roll up quite firmly, place joint side down on a baking tray and secure with a wooden toothpick.
  6. Brush the top and sides with the melted butter.
  7. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden brown and crisp. Remove and cool until warm.
  8. Take out the sticks before serving.
  9. Note: Burkhardt, Zeisner, Hela are some of the brands that make curry ketchup. Check out your local gourmet stores, look in the european isles of the local supermarkets, order offline, or make your own. Combine small amounts of ketchup and curry until you reach your desired taste.

You hit a home run with this recipe! I've been looking for recipes that would get my children interested in cooking. The familiar ingredients and the fun rolling of the bread got them all (ages 18/13/11) involved. They each chose their own condiments: two ketchup, one mustard, DH chose feuersenf that we bought in Germany, and I used mustard with Wallawalla onions. We used your instructions to mix up some curry ketchup for dipping. The franks and cheddarwurst that we used were fully cooked - uncooked brats would require much more time and would probably release a bit too much grease. We didn't need the toothpicks - ours stayed in place - and we used parchment paper for easy cleanup (I buy it in bulk at a restaurant supply). Everyone was happy, especially me - because they want to do this again and they tasted great! Thanks Amis!

This is a great simple idea that could be exploited in many different ways. I didn't put anything in with the hotdogs, just rolled them up, but next time I'm going to play around a bit more. Could even be cut in pieces for appetizers. This is the kind of thing you never think of, but is so easy you can't believe you didn't think of it.

This was a nice quick snack, and convenient since i didn't have any hotdog buns but wanted a hotdog, so made this instead! I added pickles to half and cheese to the other, after reading mama's review. I liked them both! Thanks!
