British hot dogs?

Hello!

Can anyone recommend hot dogs that are ethically produced in the Britain with good quality meat?

I know Helen Browning has a range but want to see if there are any other companies.

THANK YOU!

Re: British hot dogs?

I had some cool ones in Germany , alas most ones I have had come from factory origins, some are not. Hermandshoffer  is I think the name of fantastic pork products, South Germany.
In the U.K. most hot dogs I eat in the hope of re kindling childhood memories fail.  More factory farmed cheap pap.I spent a fortune on one at the cinema it was awful!
Big Apple Hot Dogs in London has a good name, they are a vendor, and perhaps they know more about this than we do.
There web site is

I hope no one thinks this is  spam, I am just helping someone with a food question.
Let me know us know if you have success.

My first thought is that there's a wide selection of various sausages in the marketplace and the best hotdogs are the ones you make yourself.  They're so easy and you would know what the sausages contain.

Re: British hot dogs?

welcome to the forum Mavispink smile

I have seen tins of hotdog sausages, I have seen jars of hotdog sausages and I have seen packets of those hotdog sausages in the chill section of the supermarket , but I have to be hnest and say that I only know 1 person who buys and eats them !

I think that for most people a hot dog is a normal sausage that is placed into a long  shaped bread roll that has may be saute onions , ketchup or some other typw of relish added.

But .. places like cinemas , Ikea etc sell those awful looking hot dog sausages , I dread to think what is in them or how they are made as I always avoided giving them to my family .
I did once try a vegetarian version as I was given it and  I dont know how I managed to eat it in order to be polite ,

Re: British hot dogs?

Ive bought sausages by our very own Mr Jamie Oliver made with Britsh pork.... I know he still does  food such as fishcakes and fish fingers among others which can be found in Sainsburys and other good supermarkets.. but these are normal sausages as opposed to those you would find in cinemas/jars/glass jars and such like...we would cook real sausages put them im a long bread roll and add fried onions and relish/kecthup....so the ones Jamie does/did(?) may not be what you mean...personally i would go for the real sausages anyday...

From wiki..

Ingredients
Common hot dog ingredients include:
Meat trimmings and fat
Flavorings, such as salt, garlic, and paprika
Preservatives (cure) - typically sodium erythorbate and sodium nitrite.

The term "dog" has been used as a synonym for sausage since 1884 and accusations that sausage makers used dog meat date to at least 1845. In the early 20th century, consumption of dog meat in Germany was common. The suspicion that sausages contained dog meat was "occasionally justified".

WikiP. A great place.    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hotdog
I now like  Brezel mit Weiner, for breakfast. Alas this  happens, not often enough. As this is only when I am in Bavaria. My Rost Bratwurst (sausage in a finger roll) comes from Schlemmermeyer München. Very good, most people in Munich favour this stall.

Well lets hope that the vegetarian version was dog-less !!!!
