Aperitivos: Hors 'd oeuvres: Little Hot Dogs

One of the starters from the fiesta. And snapped up heartily. Mini Hot Dogs.


  • wieners, cocktail - halved
  • baguette [french bread] - sliced
  • 50 ml Mustard, Dijon
  • 1 T Water
  • 125 ml Tomato Sauce, small can (or, better, home-made) [4,25 oz] or Sofrito
  • 1 T Oyster Sauce
  • 2 T Hoi Sin Sauce
  • ½ t Pepper


  1. Warm tomato sauce, add oyster sauce and hoisin and pepper
    • Mix - you've just made a 30 second ketchup & way tastier and healthier than store bought
    • Put this into a squeeze bottle and into the 'fridge for a bit (it's too runny when still warm)

  2. Warm mustard
  3. Add water (just to thin it a little)
    • Put this into a squeeze bottle and into the 'fridge for a bit

  4. Halve cocktail wieners the long way
  5. Slice french bread thinly
  6. Place halved wieners on the french bread slices; flat side down
  7. Put stripes of "ketchup" and / or mustard on the wieners
  8. Serve
Now, isn't that just the easiest thing in the world? Or almost; I complicated by making my own ketchup sauce but that's just because I really can't stand the commercial stuff most of the time.

I love your blog! I've never left a comment but it's refreshing to see another side of the world (I'm on the west coast of US) and the cooking and recipes are incredible! The family photo is great, looks like a great day was had by all.

Why gosh josiegirl, that's very kind of you. Welcome. Hope to see you around again some time (which is the only way you'll see this message since your comment doesn't have a link to anywhere).

I haven't set foot on the west coast of the U.S. for a number of years - - although I used to visit and/or vacation with great regularity. Nice part of the country; all of it - north,central and south coasts.

By the way... I was born out that way too. Vancouver.
