The View from Your Laptop: Hot Dogs and Sausage with Greens

Posted by

Sporkful Eater Adam in Bellingham, Washington has more fresh greens than he can handle from the garden, so he's deploying them in innovative ways, with cheese hot dogs and sausage. Here's what he learned:

I've found that chard doesn't have enough bite to compete with the overpowering flavor of hot dogs. On the other hand, even kale can't match the power of a polish. In all cases, extra sharp cheddar is the way to go, as milder cheese is lost. The best balance I've found so far is kale, extra sharp cheddar, and a generally regular hot dog or sausage.

Well worth a try, especially while it's still warm enough to grill. /mark
