Clonakilty "hot dawg"

One of our favourite recipes for using our Clonakilty Traditional Sausages in, the humble but incredibly moreish Hot Dawg!

It's not really a recipe but more a quick fix for hunger pangs and a welcome addition to any BBQ, Irish or proper when the sun does actually come out!


What you need:

1 Packet of Clonakilty Traditional Irish Pork Sausages (6 sausages in a packet)

Some really good quality bread, we love Arbutus Bread from Cork which is available in the English Market in Cork City.

Some Irish Onions

Irish Rapeseed Oil

Salt and Pepper and whatever condiments you like to put on your Hot Dawg, we think that you can't go wrong with American style mustard and ketchup!


What you should do:

Light a BBQ and get yourself a cool drink, if it's a scorcher of a day.

Take your Clonakilty Traditional Irish Pork Sausages to the BBQ and cook slowly over a medium heat.

***Top Tip*** Pre-cook your sausages in boiling water for a few minutes to ensure they are fully cooked on the BBQ but not char-coaled on the outside.

Finely Slice your onions and cook with a little rapeseed oil, salt and pepper over a medium heat and cook until translucent.

Cut open your chosen bread with enough room for all that is about to go into it.

Fill with a layer of the beautifully caramelised onions, top with a succulent BBQ'd Clonakilty Traditional Irish Sausage and cover with as much or as little sauce as you like!
