Scandinavian Hot Dog Recipe

You may think the hot dog is a purely American phenomenon, but in Scandinavia they have developed a completely different twist on the traditional dog.  To say that Scandinavians love hot dogs would be an understatement. Many European’s claim that Scandinavian hot dogs are some of the best in the world. It’s certainly true that the remoulade sauce gives their hot dogs a complex, sophisticated taste.

This recipe for a Scandinavian Hot Dog was inspired by a high school foreign exchange student named Lars who stayed with us for a couple of weeks last summer.  He said this is how teenagers (and grown-ups) enjoy their hot dogs Scandinavian style.


4 soft buns

4 red hot dogs preferably with a natural casing that snaps

4 tablespoons remoulade (store boughtt or homemade)

4 tablespoons ketchup

4 tablespoons mustard

4 tablespoons chopped white onion

4 tablespoons crispy fried onions (store bought)

16 slices of dill pickles


To make your own Scandinavian Hot Dog, bring 2 cups of water to a boil, turn down heat and place hot dogs in water.  Continue to heat for 5 minutes or until hot dogs are heated through.

Place one hot dog in each bun and place two pickle slices lengthwise along the hot dog on each side.  Then top with 1 tablespoon each of remoulade, ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and crispy fried onions.

Serve immediately and enjoy.
