If you are looking for a new twist to add to your hot dog game, then this is it! These Asian style hotdogs are going to be your new game changing bbq dish that will impress almost everyone! The Brussels sprouts are used in place of slaw or sauerkraut and Asian spices are added to give this classic American favorite an Asian twist that will turn your boring hotdogs into a wow kind of meal!
This dish is really perfect for entertaining because all of your ingredients for the Brussels sprouts can be prepped and ready ahead of time and cooking time with the hotdogs is only 15 minutes. If you do plan to use this dish for entertaining, make sure you double or triple the recipe since guests may want to add heaps of these sprouts on to the hotdogs.
This dish can be made on the grill outside, both the hotdogs and the Brussels sprouts or inside with a grill pan and saute pan. It is the easiest dish you will ever make! I have made this dish for guests and for my family and it is always a hit! Even my husband who is generally a no condiments kind of guy will happily eat this loaded hot dog. That is often my personal test of how other picky eaters will react.
If you are looking to round out this easy but delicious meal then you may want to check out my cumin lime slaw which makes a great side dish to these hotdogs. If you are looking for some great bbq style desserts that can be made ahead of time and enjoyed on a warm sunny day then my homemade coconut fudge bars or citrus basil popsicles would be perfect. They are made a day or more before your event making it an easy dessert choice!
I promise that once you make these you will keep it on rotation they are that good. Serve it with some extra sriracha sauce and you are all set!
