4 Hero Rolls
1 small Red Bell Pepper and one Green, seeded and sliced
2 medium Onions, peeled and sliced
8 best quality Hot Dogs
2 Idaho Potatoes, peeled and slice ¼” thick
Salt & Black Pepper
¼ cup Canola Oil
Place the potatoes in a small pot of water. Add 1 tablespoon Salt.
Bring the water to a boil and cook the potatoes at the boil for 2 minutes.
Turn heat off and drain the potatoes in a colander, shaking off as much water as possible.
Add 1/3 of the oil to a medium frying pan. Turn heat on to medium and add the Hot Dogs.
Fry the Hot Dogs until they get golden brown and crunchy on all sides, about 8-10 minutes. Turn heat off and leave in pan covered with aluminum foil. Place the ¾ of the oil in a large frying pan and heat to high.
Put the potatoes in the frying pan and season with a little salt & Black Pepper and fry the potatoes on high heat for 6 minutes. Add the Bell Pepper to the pan, turn down the heat and cook the peppers with the potatoes on low heat for 10 minutes, stirring as you cook. Add the onions, season with Salt & Black Pepper and cook the onions with the Peppers & Potatoes over low heat for 8 minutes.
Put the Hot Dogs in with the Peppers, Onions, Potatoes and cook on very low heat for 2 minutes. In the mean time, split the rolls in half but not all the way through, leaving a sort of hinge on one side of each roll. Place in the pan that the Hot Dogs cooked in, turn heat on to high and toast the rolls until they get a little crunchy.
Place two Hot Dogs on each roll and fill each roll with some of the Peppers, Onions, & Potatoes mixture. Serve to your buddy’s and enjoy. The HALF & HALF The half & half is even better that the regular Italian Hot Dog. To make one, instead of putting 2 Hot Dogs in each roll with the Peppers, Onions, & Potatoes, you cook up some Italian Sausages and put one Hot Dog and one Sausage Link into each roll with the Potato, Onions, and Peppers and you’re all set with a Italian Hot Dog Half & Half. You’re gonna Love It!
