Thais love hotdogs, they have as many brands of hotdogs as they do brands of canned fish and rice. Now 90% of the Thai hotdogs are pure rubbish, but there is a few very good brands out there. Hotdogs are nothing more than sausages, however with modern processing and the poor choices of fillers and casings, the consistency in taste is quite lacking. For those in Thailand and the rest of the world, use good quality beef or chicken hotdogs. This is a typical side/snack served with beer in the evening. Serve with rice for a complete meal.

Ingredients

Instructions
  1. If using hog casings packed in salt, you will need to soak and rinse them following the suppliers instructions. If using dry hog casing, set them aside until needed, the just need a minute or two in water and can be used. You can also use collagen casings if you prefer.
  2. In a mortar, add the white pepper, garlic, and coriander and pound with a pestle to combine. You can also use a blender for this if you desire.
  3. Mix the pounded garlic mixture with the remaining ingredients, except the casings, by hand until fully mixed.
  4. You can taste the sausage mixture and adjust as needed by first pan frying a small amount or microwaving a small amount.
  5. Pipe the meat mixture into the hog casing as you prefer, such as a funnel, sausage maker, hand or electric grinder with sausage tube.
  6. Pan fry on low heat until cooked through, turning often to prevent burning, or grill until cooked through.

I looked at a bunch of recipes online and got a general list together of the ingredients, and made my own, sausage patties, not links. A good general recipe that is nice for spaghetti sauces, sausage burgers, or served with pasta or potato. These are not going to win a blue ribbon prize in the culinary world, but I think they taste good. All spices are dried. To make this Italian Sausage, add the fennel seeds. To make this just a pork sausage, omit the fennel seeds. To make a nice chicken sausage, omit the fennel seeds. READ THE STEPS, I added a step at the beginning if you are using meat you are going to grind.

  1. NOTE: If you will be grinding the meat yourself (recommended) then prepare the meat by cutting into chunks that will fit the hopper of your grinder, remove an silver tendon from pork, then mix the spices into this, then grind on the medium size die, after it is ground then grind again on the smaller die.
  2. If using store bought ground pork, just add the spices.
  3. And mix with your hands really well. Now you can stuff into casings or simply make patties.
  4. Stuffed into casings.
  5. With clean hands, mix all this together well, form into patties sized to your liking. I keep a few to the side for dinner the day I make this, then freeze the rest with foil between the layers.
  6. A good friend, Dave Williams, posted a comment on this but used ground chicken and made patties, which is a great alternative! Here is his photo and his comment is below.
