Italian Style Hot Dog Sandwich
4 Good Quality Hot Dogs
1 Pizza Dough Bread or any thick Pocket Bread Cut in Half
1 Med Onion Sliced
1 Small Green Bell Pepper Sliced
1 Small Red Bell Peeper Sliced
2 Small Thin Skin Potatoes cut into 1/8 inch circles or 1 can
of 15 oz. Sliced Potatoes Rinsed and Drained
1/4 Cup of Vegetable Oil
Salt & Pepper to Taste
In a large pre heated skillet (cast iron works the best) on med high heat, add a 1/4 cup of vegetable oil. When oil
is hot add the onions and fry them until the are translucent. Then add the peppers frying them together until the
onions are caramelized and the peppers are getting browned but not mushy.
With a slotted spoon, drain and remove the onions and peppers and put the in a bowl off the heat leaving oil in
the pan. Now add the potatoes to the same oil and fry them until crispy. Do not cramp the potatoes or they will
steam instead of fry. Fry them in batches if needed. Add more oil if needed but do not discard the original oil
because that is where the flavor is. Remove and drain the potatoes with a slotted spoon and put them in the same
bowl with the onions and peppers.
Add the hot dogs to the pan and fry them till just about done. Now add the potatoes, peppers and onions to the
fry pan and heat them up until the hot dogs are done.
Remove and spread out the contents of the fry pan to a paper towel lined baking sheet, covering everything once
again with a paper towel to absorb the excess oil.
Cut the pizza bread in half and slice it open to form a pocket. If bread has too much dough for you, pull some out
and discard it. At this point you can add some mustard to the inside of the bread if you choose, then start putting
a few potatoes on the bottom followed by some onions and peppers then a hot dog repeating process ending up
with some more potatoes, peppers and onions on the top.
1 pizza bread serves 2 or cut into quarters to serve 4.
