A high speed hot dog, New York style

16 May 2013

Adding a new dimension to the burgeoning street food scene is Snowbird foods. The fully cooked and frozen sausage and meat balls manufacturer has developed a proudly British version of the iconic New York Hot Dog.

In the place of a pink, bendy and finely minced dog, Snowbird is presenting a traditional British sausage made of bowl chopped (not minced) quality cuts of pork which it fries and oven bakes in the factory to a uniform golden brown before freezing.

The iconic hot dog flavour profile is added to this familiar texture by a complex yet balanced recipe which features rapeseed oil, both standard and smoked salt, rubbed marjoram, standard and smoked black pepper, garlic, coriander and ginger.

The all British New York Hot Dog (made in London!) can be produced in a variety of sizes from chipolata upwards, but Snowbird research has identified 100g as ideal because this weight delivers a 28mm sausage which gives a good filling to a standard hot dog roll.

“This is a quality British twist on a traditional American street snack because our quality recipe in a beef collagen casing delivers a texture which is familiar to British sausage eaters and has a great flavour which is borrowed from the New World,” said Snowbird sales director, Roy Anderson.

Whilst outdoor eating is the norm for street food style products, Snowbird sees the New York Hot Dog Sausage as of a suitable quality to be presented as a plated meal centre with fries, salads and other interesting accompaniments.

It can be heated from frozen in a microwave (in seconds) and can also quickly be oven baked, griddled, grilled or even fried. It is packed in 4 kilo cases.
