How To Make smashed dog tater tower

  • 1
    Boil potatoes in one pot and califlour in another. In the last 5 minutes of califlour boiling, add hot dogs to that pot. Boil all until tender.
  • 2
    Califlour and dogs will be ready before potatoes. Remove them from the pot and set aside. Slice dogs into disks.
  • 3
    Take potatoes out whole. Smash them lightly with a slightly heavy object.
  • 4
    I used a light vase to smash mine.
  • 5
    Smash califlour the same way.
  • 6
    Season top sides of potatoes with salt and garlic. Top with cheese and then with califlour. Top one of the patties with hot dog slices.
  • 7
    Into a warm pan with olive oil, carefully add both patties using spatula and hands. (I also added blue cheese crumbles to one of the patties while on the pan.
  • 8
    Assemble on a plate a bed of coleslaw. Into it, lay down the pattie with the hot dogs, add more cheese, and top with the other pattie (don't have to flip it).
