New England Dog and Slaw Bites


  • 6 hot dogs, pork or beef

  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided

  • New England style dog rolls, top cut

  • 2 rounded tablespoons sweet pickle relish

  • 2 rounded tablespoons ketchup

  • 2 rounded tablespoons yellow mustard

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Place dogs in a medium skillet with 1 inch of water. Pierce the casings and bring water to a simmer. Cook 6-7 minutes, drain and add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan. Melt butter and crisp casings of dogs, browning over medium heat.

Remove dogs, wipe skillet and add another tablespoon of butter. Brown and crisp the rolls in melted butter.

Stuff dogs in rolls and top with mounds of slaw. Cut each dog into 3 pieces and serve.
