So you've got you hot dog buns proofing away so what's next? Well you can't have hot dogs with out a sauce. Now there a ketchup/mustard debate about this but if you want to try something different (and a bit more grown up) then give this recipe for a delicious BBQ sauce a go. Sticky, sweet and ever so boozy it's perfect for slathering between your buns. You should be able to have a big batch already in an hour, ready to carry on working your bread.

Boozy BBQ Sauce

2 Small Onions (Chopped)
4 Grated Garlic Cloves
4 Halved Cherry Tomato's
3 Tbsp Tomato Ketchup
3 Tbsp Tomato Paste 
1 Veggie Stock Cube
100ml Red Wine
2 Tbsp Molasses
1 Tbsp Dijon Mustard
2 Tbsp Worcester Sauce
2 Tbsp Olive Oil

  1. In a lightly oiled saucepan that can hold around 500ml of liquid throw in you onions and garlic until the onions start to soften.
  2. Add the remaining in ingredients into a bowl and mix everything until well combined. Tip this mixture into the saucepan and mix everything together before bringing to the boil.
  3. Reduce the heat to a simmer and leave for 20mins, stirring occasionally. The mixture should start to thicken during this time.
  4. After 20 minutes remove the pan from the hear and blend the mixture until smooth.

Its that simple. I like it thick but if you want your sauce really smooth you can pass it through a sieve if you like.

You can use the sauce warm if you like but unless your having a sausage-fest I imagine you will have some left over so wait until your leftovers are cool and then place into a sterilised jar and store in the fridge. You can then dip into your sauce for at least 1 month.

That's your buns and your sauce sorted. Now we just need a filling!
