I'm a little Irish girl, who grew up in a big Italian community! These are the absolute best hot dogs I've ever had. Serving size depends on how many dogs you want to make. I'm going to post for 1 serving, you can take it from there.

These are really good! I have been wanting to try these since seeing them on a Food Network show, 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives', which was probably shot in NJ, I don't remember.. I took a short-cut, though, and used Ore-Ida 'obrien' potatoes, which are hash browns with onions and peppers.. Great flavors, and very filling.. I love these dogs!

The best Italian hot dogs are deep fried, along with the peppers, onion and potatoes. Hey, you folks from New Jersey, I'm surprised you didn't bring this up. Perhaps it was not prevalent in your part of NJ, but I grew up in Belleville, and that is the only kind of Italian hot dog available. Try it, you'll never settle for any others.

Being a NJ boy and growing up eating Italian style hot dogs and sausages from the originators Jimmy Buff's, some say Dickie Dee's, both of Newark and it's one of my favorite types of dogs. This recipe is almost spot on, the only thing missing is the pizza bread.
