People will fight over anything. Notice we didn’t say debate. Because social media makes everybody a keyboard pugilist.
One knock-down-drag-out that will never die: Is a hot dog a sandwich?
Fifty-seven percent of those surveyed say the hot dog is a sandwich, according to RTA Outdoor Living. While technically we agree that a hot dog is a sandwich, we feel hot dogs and hamburgers are in their own category. Don’t ask our logic, just accept this Crack Wisedom and shut it!
Let’s say you’ve got too many wieners lying around, and you’re tired of putting one between the buns. Here’s a recipe to try, courtesy of Delish.
Hot Dog Fried Rice
1 tbsp. butter
1/2 Onion, finely chopped
3 medium carrots, peeled and diced
2 hot dogs, sliced into coins and halved
1 Garlic clove, minced
1 tbsp. sesame oil
2 1/2 c. cooked white rice
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2/3 c. frozen peas
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 scallion, thinly sliced
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions, carrots, and hot dogs and cook until onions become translucent, 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add sesame oil to the pan and let heat 1 minute add the rice, and let cook for 3 minutes.
Push rice to one side of the pan and add the eggs, scrambling them in the pan and incorporating them into the rice when they are fully cooked. Add the peas and the soy sauce and stir to combine. Top with scallions if desired and serve.
