Kayotic Hotdog Rolls

Kayotic Hotdog Rolls



Quick and completely silly junk food posting. Blame it on lots of residual craziness.

I got bored, which isn’t good and especially not in my case. When I’m bored I cook, and I tend to come up with really weird and fattening recipes then. It’s either that or I poke fun at the kid, which can be a lot of fun as well. Bad mommy syndrome, what can I say? The lessons of life can be cruel.

I went out and bought a package of cheap, sleazy, fake, highly processed cheddar slices—the Dutch answer to Velveeta, if you will. Mainly because I wanted to see what kind of culinary tour de force I could transform it into.

If you’re a food purist or currently on a diet, I suggest you turn your head or run. Run as hard and fast as you can.





Ingredients:

6 puff pastry sheets
6 slices fake, shiny cheddar or Velveeta
6 hotdogs or knakworsten
6 slices of bacon
1 cup sauerkraut
sweet chili sauce
pepper
1 egg



Directions:

We need sauerkraut. About 1 cup of it, drained well.

Kayotic Hotdog Rolls



You guys have hotdogs, we have knakworsten. Works both.

Cook as many bacon slices as you have puff pastry. Drain them on a paper towel.

Quickly bake the sauerkraut in the bacon grease (about a minute or so) and season with black pepper to taste. Which in my case is a lot.

The puff pastry, I always keep some in my freezer. Place one slice of pretty shiny, fake cheese on top of the puff pastry, top it with a bacon slice, sauerkraut and pop the hotdog/knakworst on top. Add a few drops of sweet chili sauce.

Start rolling. Kinda squeeze the ends, making them look like gigantic and somewhat freaky pastry candies.

Lightly beat an egg.

Line a baking tray with baking paper, place them on top and brush them with the egg.

Bake them in a preheated oven at 350F (180) for 20 to 25 minutes.

 

They’re not the prettiest of pastries, and surely not the healthiest, but they were surprisingly good. Hearty and greasy, sometimes just what the doctor ordered.

See, nothing good comes from boredom. This is me, sharing my food craziness. Now ‘fess up, what’s the weirdest recipe you’ve ever made out of sheer boredom? I’ll be supportive, I promise!

      Long ago when I was young and didn’t worry about diets, I took egg roll wrappers and filled them with chocolate chips, a dollop of sweetened cream cheese, and Kraft caramels that I cut into quarters. Then I added walnuts before sealing the wrappers with egg wash. I deep fried them until golden and gooey. When they came out, I topped them with some whipped cream, left over cherry sauce and chocolate syrup. It was my trashy eats version of fried cheesecake (which is already trashy eats!). OMG. So good. And soooooo fattening.

      Why does all the really good stuff have to be so fattening :)

      These sound great! I am ashamed to admit I often eat this way ;)

      @Liz Brooks:

      Not even really sure if eating two of these with a green salad for dinner would be really that bad. After all, it’s a hotdog, one slice of bacon and 1 slice of cheese… how bad can it be? :)

      Happy New Year Kay! Oh my! Now thats exactly what the doctor ordered….to see him soon!
      I’m apparently the bad mom around here for feeding my kids hot dogs. Wait till the neighbors see me with these, I am so going to try them (though I may omit the sauerkraut…)

      Happy New Year, Kay!
      I will definitely be making these for my sons. One swears he is a non-meat eater, but will eat hot dogs (go figure.) I am making you sausage/tomato dish for dinner tonight — it is my go to recipe (dern – though I am out of basil…hmmmph!) :D

      Kay, these remind me of the Pigs in Blankets we make in the US. We use that nasty Pillsbury Crescent dough wrapped around a hot dog that has been slit down the middle with cheese stuffed inside. Puff pastry sounds so much better, and the sauerkraut really dresses it up. I might try it with some good cheese for a real treat!

      Happy New Year!

      It’s funny how you assume your readers are only from the U.S. or somewhere with Velveeta (and celebrates Thanksgiving in November). Too interesting.

      Anyway, this is a cool recipe!! It looks very easy to make. Thanks for posting more of your awesome recipes and photos.

      When I’m bored, I like to come up with variations on bread pudding. Today I made chocolate orange bread pudding, which was actually pretty good!

      Oh, you would die if you saw the food at our State Fairs. Deep fried everything, for instance, twinkies, snicker candy bars, pork chops, the list goes on and on. Heart attack on a stick I call them.
      Love your blog. I came via Pioneer Woman.
      I have to tell you when I was growing up in Los Angeles there was a family, the DeJongs, from Holland, they had five kids. Whenever they came over to play with us we could hear them coming a block away. They would wear their wooden shoes, they called them klumpas. Maybe I spelled that wrong.
      That was our first experience with wooden shoes. We loved the whole family, sweet.

      When I was a kid and used to “help” cook, one of the recipes I came up with was called Weenies with Cheese in the Middle. Not nearly as creative, but equally lacking in nutrition. Take hot dogs, cut in half lengthwise, but don’t cut all the way through, fold open, put a strip of cheese down the center and bake. One of our favorite dinners as kids. As I recall, my parents would eat then too, although I’m sure they were aghast!

      Staring at my screen. Twinkies are those little sponge cakes, aren’t they? How on earth do you deep fry them??

      I know I have readers from all over the world, but I know about 80% of my readers are American :)

      This was super easy!

      @Sue:

      It gets worse; I liked the plastic cheese! I’m a convert! Spread the word!

      Actually, in my defense, this slice of shiny, pretty cheese actually did have a whopping 20% of actual cheese in it *snirk*

      If you want to know how processed cheese is made, try to find the episodes from Jimmy’s food factory. In total there are 6 episodes of how food in the supermarkt is prepared. The second episode gives you information how regular and processed cheese is created. Entirely different…

      When I was young my dad made “gourmet” hot dogs on the bar b q grill. He would take the hot dog, split it, add cheese and a pickle slice, wrap it in bacon and grill it. Split side first before the cheese melted! That was the only way I would eat hot dogs!

      Pickles! Why didn’t I think of that? That would have been a great combination.

      You are right! They are the sponge cakes with a cream filling. They dip them in a batter then deep fat fry them until golden. I will try one next time I go to the Kansas State Fair.

      I confess to being a total copycat and very uncreative so I make nothing weird unless you count my bologna sandwich which consists of two slices of bread and one each slice of bread you put mayo, catsup, & mustard then add a slice of bologna, salt and 4 saltine crackers. It’s the best!!

      Hey, I grew up with hot dogs sliced about half way through lengthwise, stuffed with a thick slice of cheddar cheese, then wrapped with bacon and baked. I always had mustard to dip them in. Great childhood memory, will plan on trying this one. We did cook the bacon til almost done before wrapping it around the hot dog.
