The hot dogs we’re used to are those in which we use vienna sausages. They are pretty yum and so quick to make. We’ve often had the hot dogs with boerewors when we go out. They are usually being braai-ed at shopping centres or certain supermarket entrances. The taste is great.
You can also do the same only that we’re doing it on the stove top in a pan and not with charcoal on a braai stand. The results are just as splendid (given that you use a great sausage), the only missing thing would be that smoked effect on the sausage but it’s no big deal!
