Coming up with something for lunch at camp that isn’t boring can be a chore, but here is a quick and easy recipe that you can prep ahead of time at home, or get the kids involved and have them do some of the messy work!
- 500 g pork mince
- Handful fennel sliced fine
- Handful chopped walnuts
- 2 x tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1 x egg
- ¼ red cabbage
- 1 x green apple
- Coleslaw dressing or mayo
- Hot dog buns
- American mustard
Method: Pop your pork mince into a bowl, and add your chopped walnuts, finely sliced fennel, sesame seeds, salt, pepper and one egg. Eagle-eyed folk will note that Ricko forgot to add his egg in the video above!
Here is the chance to get the kids involved. After they’ve carefully washed their hands, now they can dig in and mix everything together; it’s great fun!
Once the ingredients are combined, its time to form your dogs. We used metal skewers and covered them in the mince in the shape of a thick sausage. Wooden skewers will work too, but soak them in water for 15 minutes first so they don’t burn.
Have your cooking plate or pan pre-heated, and use a little non-stick spray if needed. Cook your dogs and turn them frequently.
While your cooked pork dogs are resting, its time to prep the apple slaw. You can either thinly slice with a knife, or a grater is a terrific way to turn your red cabbage and apples into slaw. We didn’t do it, but carrot will go great in this mix too. Drain off your slaw and pop into a bowl, adding your dressing with a little salt and pepper to taste.
Now you simply add your slaw to a hot dog bun, pop your pork dog on top, and finish off with a drizzle of American mustard! Tell us this isn’t a hit with your family!
