How to Make the Classic Danish Hot Dog
Recipe Type: Main
Cuisine: Danish
It's just like a NYC dirty water dog, right? Wrong. The classic Danish pølse has the perfect snap and fun toppings like apple ketchup and crispy fried onions.
  • 1 5-pack of Copenhagen Street Dog røde pølser or grillpølser
  • 5 hot dog buns
  • 5 tsp of ketchup mixed with 1 tsp of apple sauce
  • 5 tsp of spicy mustard
  • 5 tsp remoulade (find recipe link above)
  • 1 small chopped yellow onion
  • 5 tsp of Fried Onions
  • 15-20 Sweet Pickles (find recipe link above)
  1. Cook Pølser: For røde pølser, add water to a large saucepan, and heat the pan until the water is bubbling. Add the røde pølser and let them boil for approximately 5 minutes. For grillpølser, heat oil or butter on a pan or grill and fry the pølser for approximately 5 minutes until dark brown and crisp on two sides.
  2. Toast hot dog buns
  3. Top pølser with a thin layer of ketchup, mustard, and remoulade. Scatter the chopped onions on top of the creation, followed by a generous helping of the fried onions. Finally, delicately top the hot dog with thin slices of sweet pickles.
