Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 pound ground sirloin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • One 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 4 jumbo hot dogs
  • 4 large brat rolls
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup crispy bacon bits
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted and slightly heated
  • 1 cup crispy shoestring potatoes
  • Yellow mustard, for drizzling
Directions
  • In a large saute pan, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the crushed red pepper, onions and green peppers and sweat until the onions are translucent, about 8 minutes. Add the beef, season with salt and pepper and cook, breaking it up with a spoon, until no longer pink, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic and continue to cook for 1 minute. Add the crushed tomatoes, hot dogs and 1/2 cup water and cook until the sauce thickens, about 15 minutes.

  • For the hot dog build: On each fresh brat roll, place a hot dog, then some meat sauce, Parmesan, bacon bits, peas and shoestring potatoes. Top with a drizzle of yellow mustard.
