Cajun Hot Dogs with Spicy Slaw

If you’ve been reading the blog for a while (thank you!), you’ve probably realized by now that I enjoy spicy food. It probably goes back to when I was a kid. My parents tell me that I was eating hot chili peppers straight out of the jar at 2. To this day chances are every meal that I am either adding sriracha, crushed red peppers, hot chili peppers or another kind of hot sauce to whatever I’m eating. I just love spicy food. That is why it should come as no shock that when it comes to hot dogs, I like them spicy too.

One of my favorite sausages ever is andouille. It’s got such a great kick to it. We have a great local sausage company that makes a killer andouille. I love to add it to different dishes like this Kale and Andouille Mac n’ Cheese or this Andouille and Chard Tater Tot Casserole. For this recipe, I just decided to grill some up and top them with a creamy and, you guessed it, spicy slaw. Spicy slaw loaded with freshly shredded cabbage, chopped bell peppers, dijon mustard and cajun seasoning. I liked the slaw so much, when the sausage was gone, I just served myself some as a side dish. And it only seemed to get better the longer I let it sit in the fridge.

In fact, as I sit here typing this at 12AM, I’m thinking of going and taking a bite for a little midnight snack. The sleeping baby on my chest, however, thinks otherwise. Oh well. :)

Anywho, cute babies aside, I highly recommend you make this hot dog for your next BBQ. Your spicy food obsessed friends will love you.
