Almost everyone loves hot dogs. They are quick and easy to prepare and you only have to substitute the sausage to make them vegan, because all the other ingredients are usually plant-based. You also can get creative when it comes to the toppings. Germans (and especially Bavarians) love bratwurst, so I came up with the idea to create this recipe for a vegan Bavarian hot dog. Instead of a classic hot dog bun, soft pretzel bread sticks (= the long version of a pretzel roll) are used and everything is topped with sauerkraut, beer mustard and lingonberry onions. Sounds good? Tastes even better! Guten Appetit!
Bavarian Hot Dog with Vegan Bratwurst and Sauerkraut
- 4 soft pretzel bread sticks
- 4 vegan sausages (brats)
- 8 tbsp sauerkraut
- 4 tbsp mustard
- 2 cl beer
- 1 onion
- 1 tbsp lingonberry jam, or cranberry jam
- salt + pepper
- vegetable oil
- Halve the onion and slice thinly. Fry in 1 tbsp vegetable oil until lightly golden. Add lingonberry jam, season with salt & pepper and mix well.
- Heat the sauerkraut in a small saucepan over medium heat.
- Grill or pan-fry the bratwurst sausages until golden brown.
- Mix mustard and beer.
- Top each soft pretzel bread stick with bratwurst, sauerkraut, lingonberry onions and beer mustard. Your Bavarian hot dog is ready to serve!
