Earlier this afternoon, Alex helped me make macaroni salad. For dinner, I would have loved a steak to go with it. :) However, that means a trip to Costco on a Friday evening…totally not up to it. Instead, we made Jersey-style hot dogs for the very first time. It was easy-peasy and delicious!
Recipe for the macaroni salad can be found in a previously published post – Macaroni Salad and Grilled Soy Sauce Pork.
The recipe for the Jersey-Style Hot Dogs can be found in Taste of Home Recipes Across America cookbook. Below, I’ve cut the recipe in thirds and all the amounts were approximated (I did not measure anything). Enjoy!
2-3 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, halved, and thinly sliced
1 large red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1 small to medium onion, peeled, halved, and thinly sliced
About 1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
Coarse salt and black pepper
In a 13 x 9-inch disposable foil pan, toss all the ingredients together. Cover with foil and place on grill rack over medium heat. Cook, covered for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat and serve on top of hot dogs.
