  • 12 hot dogs
  • 2 tablespoons prepared mustard
  • 1 12 cups sauerkraut, drained
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup (optional)
  • 12 hot dog buns, split and toasted (buttered, if desired)
  • 1 cup chopped onion, cooked if desired


  1. Slice each hotdog almost in half lengthwise, but not quite through to the other side. Press open. Spread 1/2 tsp mustard evenly on both cut side of each hotdog.

FABULOUS recipe idea CraftyLady! We enjoyed these on the BBQ tonight for our supper and although I only cooked enough for 2, I can see that this recipe will be a great boon for larger gatherings! A really clever and simple idea and one that I can use for other sausages and what not!!! Made for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #29 - as ever, it is a pleasure to make one of your recipes! FT:-)
