Idaho Dogs for #SundaySupper


Every summer when the grill comes out so do the hamburgers and hotdogs! Since July is National Hotdog month Christie of A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures invited the Sunday Supper tastemakers to bring their best dogs to the table. And hamburgers just seemed to be a natural pairing with hotdogs, so we're sharing those, too.

Idaho Dogs

I had initially planned to make Puka Dogs because I love the story of their name and we love Kauai though we never did have Puka Dogs when we were in Poipu. However, after testing the recipe, we decided it was just too sweet - sweet rolls, sweet relish, and even sweet mustard. It was too much sweet for my crew. So, I changed directions and went with an Idaho Dog. Full disclosure, I saw a photo of an "Idaho Dog" on pinterest and decided to go for it; I did not, however, check with my family in Idaho to actually verify that they have these there. Whoops.

Ingredients serves 4

  • 4 large potatoes - as long as you can find them!
  • 4 hot dogs (I found some locally made, uncured and fully-cooked hot dogs)
  • butter
  • organic sour cream
  • organic chives
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Procedure

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Wash and dry your potatoes. Pierce them with a fork or toothpick at least six times so that the moisture can escape during cooking. Wrap them in tinfoil.

Bake for an hour or until the potato feels soft when you squeeze it. During the last 15 minutes of baking, grill your hot dogs until warmed through.

To serve, remove the potatoes from the foil and slice them down the middle, lengthwise. Gently squeeze the ends of the potato towards the each other; the potato should crack open.

Mash some of the potato away from the sides toward the bottom and place a pat of butter in the potato. 


Place the cooked hot dog inside the potato.


Top with sour cream, snipped chives, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!
