BBQ series: Hoi sin hot dogs

I love a good barbecue and I love a tried-and-tested, traditional burger or hot dog, but sometimes I’m after something a bit different. Today I’m sharing the first in a series of barbecue recipes for when you’re up for a bit of a change or when you’re out to wow your guests that I think will do the trick.


I’ve been putting hoi sin sauce on sausages for years since back when I was in school and my friend’s mum served us scrumptious sausages that just tasted so good and I had to ask what her secret ingredient was. Turned out it was hoi sin sauce!


The hoi sin acts as a gorgeous sweet sticky glaze that barbecues beautifully. Give these a try at your next barbecue and you’re guaranteed to impress your guests!



Serves 3-4

  • 8 pork sausages (not too herby)
  • 3 tbsp hoi sin sauce plus extra to serve
  • 4 brioche hot dog rolls
  • Half a cucumber chopped into short thin strips
  • 2-3 Spring onions sliced diagonally
  • Sesame seeds lightly toasted


  1. Lay the sausages in an airtight container and pour over the hoi sin sauce. Turn the sausages in the sauce so that they’re nicely covered. Leave for about an hour.
  2. Heat up that barbecue!
  3. Cook the sausages on the barbecue until they’re done – timings will vary depending on your barbecue so just keep checking.
  4. To serve, pop 2 sausages into each brioche bun, top with a drop more sauce and sprinkle with the cucumber, spring onions and sesame seeds.
