|Ready to make our sandwiches...or eat it just as is!|
If you've never had them like this, I highly recommend you give it a try. There are other ways to make these too. For instance, you can leave the hot dogs whole and grill them, then cover them with the peppers and potatoes; or bake it all together in the oven. You can leave out the sauce or potatoes. But, I stand on my earlier statement..."these are the best!"
My mom did it this way, and since I don't believe in "fixing what isn't broken"...I make them the same. I just can't help myself!
1 pkg. hot dogs (use your favorite brand)
6 medium potatoes, sliced
1 large onion, sliced
2-3 red, yellow or green peppers, sliced (or a combination of all three)
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic or 2 cloves fresh, minced
1/2-3/4 cup tomato sauce (depends how "wet" you like it)
1/4 tsp. basil
1/8 tsp. oregano (optional)
6 Italian rolls (heat them in the oven for a crisp crust)
Fry potato slices in olive oil until just starting to soften; add sliced peppers and onions. Cook until all are tender. Place in a bowl and set aside.
Slice the hot dogs into 1" circles, place in the same pan and let cook until heated through and a little browned; this takes almost no time at all. Then, pour the rest back into the pan; stir gently to combine.
Stir in tomato sauce, and seasonings; simmer until heated through.
Serve on warm Italian rolls!
