Here in Denmark we have our own version of the Hotdog, which we call pølse, the same name as the sausage we use to make them. As in the USA, they are found in every street corner and are eaten during sporting events and festivals.
Under the current conditions dad was a bit lacking in all the celebrations that punctuate a normal summer so I started to make them. Being a typical dish from here I said to myself that you might be interested in having the recipe.
For the base, like a classic hotdog, the pølse consists of a lightly toasted bun, a sausage and ketchup or mustard. Where it differs is that we add a sweet and salty sauce on top. Here are the ingredients:
- 3 tbls of mayonnaise
- 1 tbls of fresh cream
- 1 tbls of capers
- 1 tbls of carrots
- 1 tbls of pickles
- 1 tbls of chives
- 1 tbls of tarragon or dill
- 1 tbls of chopped shallot
- 1 tbls of lemon juice
- 1 teaspoon of mustard
- 1 tbls of peeled green apple
- 1 tbls of plain yogurt
- 1 pinch of turmeric (for color)
- Salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar
Cut all the ingredients into very small cubes, chop the herbs and mix all the ingredients.
Pour the sauce over your hot dog and Tadah!
