Sometimes your normal hot dog sandwiches can get a little boring. I sure was bored with that, so i wanted to do something unique, fun, surprising…..and of course, delicious.

I opened my freezer and i saw my good friend, Mr. Puff pastry smiling at me. 😊😊 I definitely wanted to use puff pastry as it will give an extra crunch to the hot dogs. Then i thought of teaming up hot dog and hard boiled egg and presenting them in a different yet beautiful manner. Tried it, and it was a success story with my fussy eater husband. Yaaay! Even though he usually doesn’t adore hotdogs much, he loved this. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

4. Slice the eggs into two. Marinate the eggs with chilly pdr, pepper and salt. In the same oil which you fried the hot dogs fry the eggs too for a minute.

Assembling:
1. On a square puff pastry sheet, place the hot dog.
2. Roll it well sealing the edges. (pinch the dough edges between two fingers, so that they are firmly attached)
3. Cut approximately 1cm slices and place them in a flower shape around a slice of the egg on a lined baking tray.
4. Egg wash the puff pastry.
5. Arrange mozzarella cheese on top of the egg.

Place it in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes till the puff pastry is flaky and the cheese gets all melted.
Serve hot.

Notes:

βœ”οΈ Instead of the puff pastry you can also use pizza dough.
βœ”οΈ If you would like to have more flavor for the egg, you can make an onion masala and place on top of the egg and then add the cheese. For that cut 1 onion into very thin slices. SautΓ© it in little oil and when it turns brown add 2 chopped green chillies, a tsp of pepper and salt.

  1. Great Idea Sadia and what gorgeous pictures but that is not difficult for you :). Absolutely delicious.
    I often bring vegetarian sausages and I might do that with those sausages :).
    What a great work πŸ™‚

  2. How did u arrange them around the egg. Wish there were foto showing that. U just placed each slice of hotdog around egg? But how do they stick on each other and on the egg?
