It looks just fine after it's been prepared, but after the first bite, it becomes a mess! a GIANT WAVE! Its aspect is horrible, ugly, revolting, disgusting, and to some, even nauseous, and it also tends to spill onto the eater ---but wow! The sight is worth it! What a great taste---A TRUE TSUNAMI GIGANTIC TASTE EXPLOSION! Careful, you might bite your tongue! Great midnight snack!

Wow, much greater than the sum of its parts! I does sound like a hodgepodge, but it really works. I used Baked Ruffles for the potato strings. I wasn't sure if it was a mistake for it to be 3-4 sausages and 5 or more cups of toppings for each person/bun - but we just made one sausage for each person/bun with a normal sprinkling/spread of each topping (and skipped the optional favorite sauce, since already had all the other toppings). I totally agree that vegetarians could use beans for the sausage (and leave off the bacon). These were really good!
- 3 -4 sausages, cooked to taste, preferred brand (or chorizo, cooked to taste, or chili beans, or pork meat, or any combination of these)
- 1⁄4 cup shoestring potatoes, fried
- 1⁄2 cup cabbage and carrot coleslaw mix
- 1 onion, chopped, to taste
- 1 slice bacon, crumbled, to taste
- 1 lettuce leaf, chopped
- 2 slices tomatoes, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup alfalfa (or soy bean sprouts)
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon mustard
- 1⁄2 cup white cheese, grated (or favorite cheese)
- 1⁄2 cup avocado dip (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup hot sauce (optional)
- 1⁄2 cup your favorite sauce (optional)
- 1 hot dog bun, large (I use French bread)
Directions See How It's Made
- Just place the ingredients in your preferred order and manner, and top with the ketchup, mayonnaise, and mustard.
- Of course all of these ingredients may be increased, decreased, or omitted to suit your personal taste. (For instance, you might add a scrambled egg, and take out the onion.).
- However, eating this delicious but ugly dog is also an art which includes covering part of it with a grated white or favorite cheese topping, and your favorite sauce, such as: an avocado sauce, or barbecue sauce, or a garlic dip, or red hot sauce, etc.
- Once finished, repeat the process by adding another topping of grated white cheese, and cover with ANOTHER favorite sauce -- and so on, until you finish the hot dog. This step is optional, but it's very popular amongst most eaters.
- I guess you could probably replace the white cheese with Monterrey; although, I haven't tried it.
