Traditional Hot Dogs & Homemade Condiments

Impress your friends and family by making your own homemade mustard and tomato sauce to accompany showstopping hot dogs this summer.


Hot Dog

  • Place the hot dogs over a medium heat on a barbecue grill. Turn the hot dogs regularly and keep an eye on them, making sure they do not burn. We recommend not walking away from the grill while cooking hot dogs.

  • Once cooked, place the hot dog in the buns, top with onions, tomatoes, gherkins and spring onions and finally drizzle your favourite sauce on top.


  • Grind the mustard seeds using a pestle and mortar or an easier alternative is to use a spice grinder.

  • Tip the ground seeds in to a clean glass jar and tip in the apple cider vinegar, water and sea salt. Stir the ingredients thoroughly until combined.

  • Allow the mustard to sit at room temperature for 8 hours then place in the fridge. Taste and add honey if needed. We suggest preparing the mustard a couple of days before intended use for enhanced flavour.

Tomato Sauce

  • Tip the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and sautee the onions until softened.

  • Add the garlic, cook for a minute, tip in the tomato passata, maple syrup, vinegar, smoked paprika and ground cinnamon. Stir and allow to cook by covering and reduce for 10 minutes.

  • Carefully remove from the heat, add to a blender and combine until smooth. If too thick, add water. Pour in to a glass jar and store in the fridge.
