Wolfgang Puck Uses An Austrian Twist To Elevate
Hot Dogs
By SHAYE GLISSON
Wolfgang Puck has created many unique and award-winning dishes over the years, so it’s no surprise the celebrated chef can take something as unassuming as hot dogs and turn them into something special. His recipe for Wiener Würstchen is no different, as he gives it an interesting Austrian twist.
Per Food & Wine, Puck has been a fan of the Wiener Würstchen sausage since childhood. His recipe involves slicing the hot dogs down the middle, filling them with Gruyère cheese, and wrapping them in lean slices of bacon. He roasts the wieners and serves them in a bun with horseradish sauce.
To make Puck’s recipe, first make the sauce using horseradish, mayo, sour cream, mustard, honey, shallots, chives, salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Slice the dogs lengthwise, stuff them with Gruyère, wrap the wieners in bacon, and bake until the bacon is crisp. Place each Wiener Würstchen in a hot dog bun and serve with the spicy sauce.
