Tater Dogs

Jackie Mento


The picture will never do this Tater Dog justice! Tater Dogs are one of our favorite sandwiches. They are great with hot dogs or Italian Sausages.

SPICE ALERT! Sometimes you don't have to do much to get food to have unbelievable flavors. That is the way it is for these dogs. The potato onion mixture will blow your socks off! Adjust the seasonings to your preference or try it as it is written for an explosion of flavor!

Try Tater Dogs at your next family get together or football party and you may never eat a plain dog again!

25 Min


4 c
red potatoes, diced
3 c
onion, chopped
1/4 c
oil, canola
2 tsp
roasted garlic salt (one of my new favorite seasonings from lawrys) or table salt
1/2 tsp
crushed red pepper (more or less as to your preference)
2 tsp
granulated garlic
2 Tbsp
parsley flakes
1 tsp
black pepper (more or less as to your preference)
mustard, spicy brown (for each sandwich)
hot dogs or italian sausages
soft hoagie rolls and/or pita pockets (hot dog rolls do not hold up this mixture well to me. it needs a roll with substance or a crispy pita pocket)

Directions Step-By-Step

This is a spicy potato and onion mixture that when placed on a roll with a hot dog/sausage is super tasty so adjust seasonings as you like.
Start by boiling the potatoes until just tender, then drain.
Meanwhile saute the onions in the oil. When they are just tender add the roasted garlic salt, crushed red pepper flakes, granulated garlic, parsley and pepper.
Mix the seasonings together with the onions, then add the drained potatoes.
Split, then saute or grill the hot dogs (or sausages).
If using rolls, slice in half, slather with mustard and add 2 hot dogs, then top with potato onion mixture. If using pita pockets you can eat them as they are or heat the pitas first. Cut the top off and then heat carefully in an oven till slightly crispy. Then, slather mustard, add the dogs, add the potatoes and enjoy the flavor explosion.

I enjoy these Tater Dogs in pita pockets as left overs. Just fill the pockets (not heated) and wrap in foil. Then when you are ready to eat, bake them in the oven for about 20 - 25 minutes for a crispy delicious hot sandwich!
