Dagwood Dogs

Carolyn Haas


They say the show must go on, but it just can't without a Dagwood Dog - one of the top 40 Australian foods. This frankfurter on a stick is battered and deep-fried and is found at most carnivals. With tomato sauce on top, of course. Or as we call it in the US, ketchup. (Mustard is optional!)
