The Godfather: A Gourmet Hotdog

While browsing Serious Eats I came across a recipe for a hotdog. It included spicy mortadella, spicy cappicola and pepperoncini. It was submitted by "intense foodie". Since it was rather unusual I thought I would give it a try. Here is a picture of the final product. This recipe makes a great hot dog if you like spicy food. The only change I made to the recipe was to add a slice of provolone cheese and I broiled the dogs in the oven for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese and further brown the buns. I could not find poppy seed buns so I used hot dog rolls.

The Recipe: Godfather Hotdogs
Adapted From: Intense Foodie

hot dog rolls
sliced pepperoncini
thinly sliced tomato
dried oregano
spicy mortadella sliced
spicy cappicola sliced
pepperoni sliced
chopped sweet onion
slices of provolone cheese
all beef hotdogs

Pan fry the hot dog in a tiny bit of oil.

Add the mortadella, pepperoni, cappicola and fry until fragrant and lightly browned.

Remove hotdogs and other ingredients and brown the buns in the same pan until golden brown

Spread the mayo, and mustard on the bun and lay the mortadella, cappicola and pepperoni in the middle of the bun. Add the hot dog and garnish with pepperoncini, and chopped onion. (You can also add tomatoes and sliced black olives. Top with a slice of provolone cheese and put under the broiler until the cheee is melted. Sprinkle with a little oregano, and enjoy!!!
