Simon Howie Loaded Dogs

These delicious loaded BBQ hot dogs are perfect for feeding the family throughout the Summer months and are perfect to squeeze into a wee BBQ before we head into the colder weather. There are three ideas for the loaded dogs below but you can mix and match your favourite ingredients to create your own combination.

I love using brioche buns for this recipe they are so soft and fluffy and the kids love them. I have used the sausages from the Simon Howie BBQ range and the kids really enjoyed them in the loaded dogs. They also cook really well in the oven so if it is raining you can cook them in there.

These dogs are great on the BBQ but if your making them in the colder weather there is no reason why you can’t make them up in the oven and serve up some different seasonal toppings on the top.

If you like the sound of these delicious loaded dogs I’m sure you will like the following on my blog and Youtube channel. Why not serve up this delicious strawberry tart as a dessert after the BBQ hot dogs. The kids loved this one! You could also serve up this delicious chicken and oatmeal soup for a starter recipe. It is lovely and the kids really enjoy this one with fresh crusty bread. Its also a great soup to have as a meal too.

Tips for making this recipe:

  • This recipe is fun and the kids love it! Its flexible in the way you can vary up the toppings and change things up to suit your individual child or your own preferences. We love these three toppings and have had others on our hotdogs but these three are our favourite.
  • This recipe is so quick to make and is perfect for a busy day. You could even make all the salad toppings up ahead of time and whip everything together last minute.
  • I used the sausages from Simon Howie as they have a great selection available for the BBQ season but you could use other sausages if you prefer. Veggie sausages would also work really well with these toppings.

They have a passion for producing high quality food products which includes their delicious BBQ range! It is perfect to pick up and pop on the BBQ before the colder weather arrives. Some of the BBQ range is listed below, we used the Jumbo Dogs in this recipe.

We also love the haggis they have for sale and one of our favourite make ahead breakfast recipes is to wrap up some hot veggie haggis, creamy scambled eggs and a good handful of cheddar cheese. Wrap it up and store it in the fridge for breakfasts. They are delicious! We also love the black pudding and the beef olives are one of my daughters faves too.
