If you are looking for an easy and a little bit different back to school dinner idea look no further. We all know kids like hot dogs, unless they are weird like me. I have never liked them. But this is not your normal hot dog. This is a chicken sausage disguised as a hot dog and loaded with your favorite Greek toppings.
You can choose to make your own tzatziki or use store bought. To make your own peel and cut 1 small cucumber in half length wise and scoop out the seeds. Grate the cucumber and let is sit in a colander, sprinkle with salt to draw out moisture. Allow to sit 15 mins. Mix together cucumber, 3 minced garlic clove, juice from 1/2 lemon, 12oz plain Greek yogurt, and 1 tsp of olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Allow flavors to meld in fridge. Eat within 1 week.
Now for toppings I kept it simple with chopped red onion, tomato, and homemade tzatziki. The flavor was excellent. Even the adults enjoy this easy twist on the traditional hot dog. We served raw carrots and radishes on the side and dipped them in the tzatziki to complete the meal.
- 4 sun dried tomato precooked chicken sausages
- 4 hot dog buns
- 1 tomato, chopped
- ½ red onion, chopped
- In a skillet, sprayed with non stick cooking spray, over medium high heat, brown the sausages on each side, 2-3 minutes per side.
- Add ½ cup of water to the skillet, cover, and allow to steam 5 minutes, or until water has evaporated.
- Serve each sausage on bun. Top with tzatziki, tomato, and red onion.
