I know! This sounds like The Most Ghetto Recipe of all time - and maybe it is - but DAYEM, it's goood. In fact, Hot Dogs & Eggs is Dave's specialty. He's been making it for decades and everyone loves it. It works well for a crowd, for the kids and for a hangover.
It is also as easy as, well, hot dogs and eggs.
The ingredients are so complicated, I'm not sure you'll be able to remember them if I don't post a picture, so here you go.
A carton of eggs.
We REALLY love these all natural, uncured, all beef hot dogs from Trader Joe's. Every time I walk in that place, I grab at least ten packs of them and stick 'em all in the freezer. (That's why this package is wet - we defrosted it in a bowl of hot water for 4 minutes). In fact, I can't walk out of TJ's without spending $80, since we only go once a month and I always stock up hot dogs and grab a case of two buck Chuck Cabernet. (Which is really THREE buck Chuck here in WA.)
You chop up some hot dogs, like so.
The ratio is 1:1. One egg for every hot dog. You could bump it up to 1.5 eggs: 1 dog, but it's risky. This is a MEATY dish. Scale your recipe to the number of eaters you've got.
Then pepper the eggs, but do not salt them. (Dave hates salt and he will HUNT YOU DOWN if you ruin his recipe by over-salting. The hot dogs are salty enough.)
Please excuse my funky-looking grout. It's actually SUPPOSED to be gray, okay? But admittedly, it's been a while since I bleached it. (I hate my tile/grout! If it was up to me, I'd redo every counter in my kitchen with giant industrial slabs of stainless steel.)
Anyway, whip up them eggs and cook the hot dogs in your skillet until they're good and brown. This photo is ALMOST done, but not quite all the way there. (My DONE photos were all blurry.)
(Dave has a method for "ribboning" the eggs, but we've been married for 12 years and he hasn't shared his secret with me, so we're all out of luck. The kids refer to him as The Breakfast Master.)
When they're done, they look like this.
Serve with toast, garnish with shredded cheese and enjoy your ghettorrific goodness!
Also? Don't knock it till you TRY IT.
