Have some fun with sausages and make these Monster Hot Dogs with a warm red cabbage slaw. Perfect for Halloween or Bonfire Night!
At this time of year hot dogs make the best party food. They are cheap, easy to make in bulk and always go down well with adults and kids alike. And my recipe for these super tasty Monster Hot Dogs with a delicious warm red cabbage slaw are sure to go down an absolute storm at your Halloween or Bonfire Night party!
Hot dogs often have a bit of a bad reputation but I’m using debbie & andrew’s Pork & Herb Chipolatas which contain 84% pork and are gluten, wheat and dairy free. The sausages can be cooked in the oven or fried on the hob. They can also been cooked on the bbq or even on a bonfire if you’re feeling brave!
I’ve also upgraded the traditional hot dog with a warm and autumnal red cabbage slaw. This delicious and lightly spiced slaw perfectly compliments the herb sausages. It also counts towards one of your five a day, so great for getting some veggies into your little monsters!
The monster eyes are of course optional but they really do make a fun addition to these hot dogs! I got mine from the Eats Amazing shop!
