Hot Dogs Wellington



About once a year, usually around Labor Day, we get a hankering for hot dogs.  For the most part, we stay away from highly processed foods, and I’m actually not crazy about the vegan hot dogs available in my area anyway.  (In fact, I’m working on perfecting my own healthy vegan hot dogs, but it’s still a work in progress.) 

This year instead of the usual dog-in-a-bun, I made some fancy-pants hot dogs, or as I like to call them, Hot Dogs Wellington.  (You know how much I like to "play" with food!)

First, I grilled the hot dogs and then put them on a plate to cool.  I made a small batch of impromptu chili by combining some TVP granules with ketchup, relish and chili powder.  After heating the chili to bring out the flavor, I let it cool as well.  While the hot dogs and chili were cooling, a sheet of vegan puff pastry was thawing.

To assemble, I cut the pastry into 4 equal pieces and rolled them out a little. I then spooned a line of the chili onto each piece of pastry, topped it with a hot dog, topped the hot dog with mustard, and nestled a thin strip of dill pickle next to the hot dog.  The pastry was then wrapped around the hot dog and its toppings and baked until nicely browned.

Served with coleslaw and some extra mustard, this made a very fun — if not exactly traditional — Labor Day meal.  I can’t wait until next year — by then I will be using my own hot dog recipe!

I liked the hot dogs in "Hearty Vegan Meals for Monster Appetites." They were seitan-based, but had some TVP in them (apparently, bratwurst have those little bits in them).
 
Mine are going to be smooth -- like regular hot dogs. So far I'm happy with the flavor -- still working on the right texture!
 
This looks great! I've never even had beef wellington in my meat eating days, but I'd try the vegan version!
 
Your Hot Dogs Wellington are so cute!

It makes me super happy that you're working on a hot dog recipe - I can't wait to try it! I have to admit to really loving Smart Dogs, but would much rather have hot dogs that are homemade.
 
Oh my goodness, this is genius; I know what WE'RE having tonight. I even have everything on hand - including some leftover chili!
 
Sounds great, Desdemona! They're east to make and fun to eat! Let me know how you enjoy them.
 
Agreed. Definitely genius.
 
Wow- I was just thinking about making homemade hotdogs if I could find a good recipe! I'll wait for yours Robin- and if you need a tester you know where to find me :)
 
Sounds like a plan, Lea. You'll be the first to know!
 
These are adorable! Thanks for the idea.
