Brazilian Hotdogs

Updated: 2 days ago

It's not your typical bun, hot dog, ketchup and mustard hot dog. It's elevated!

The first time my Brazilian husband mentioned he wanted hotdogs for dinner, I went and got buns, veggie dogs, ketchup and mayo. When I brought him a plate of hotdogs his face was so bewildered at what was on the plate. Since we were newlyweds he happily ate them all. Once he was finished he said when we go to Brazil he will show me how to eat hotdogs the right way. Luckily his friend in Brazil had a little hotdog stand and had veggie hotdogs, and he was happy to show this American girl how hotdogs were meant to be eaten. My perspective on hotdogs has changed ever since. So now I'm sharing the best way to eat hotdogs.


  • 8 vegan hot dogs (*can substitue for 2 cups soy curls, chopped up)

  • 8 hotdog buns

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 15 oz tomato sauce

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/2 onion, diced

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1/2 tsp oregano



  1. On medium heat, in a sauce pan sauté the onion, garlic and olive oil for 3 minutes, or until onions are translucent.

  2. Add the tomato sauce, water, salt and oregano, and bring to a slight boil.

  3. Cover and lower heat to low, and let it simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Cut the vegan hot dogs into round slices and add them to the sauce pan, let it simmer for another 5 minutes.

  5. Remove from heat and place inside the hot dog buns.

  6. Add the toppings desired.

*As noted above in the recipe, you can use soy curls (textured vegetable protein) instead of veggie dogs. Vegetarian hotdogs tend to be processed, so a healthier way to make this would be to use soy curls, a more nautral ingredient.

Wow, these are so good! I would have never thought to add these toppings to our hotdogs, but we enjoyed them. I need to find the potato sticks that are thin like yours. Do you mind linking the ones you buy?
