To finish up day 5 of the challenge we decided on an easy option. In short, we’d been busy all day and needed to cut our time in the kitchen. So we chose to have hot dogs and veggies, and an early night.
Hot Dogs and Veggies
- 1 pack of six large finger rolls (80p).
- 1 jar of 8 bratwurst style hot dogs (£1).
- 1 bag of frozen veggies (99p).
The veggies were steamed in the steamer for 25 minutes, as normal. We boiled the sausages for about 8 minutes to ensure that they were safely heated. Hot dogs are a big source of listeria, so safe heating is essential.
We split the rolls and serve the sausages on them, with the extra two sausages being split down the middle and served on the adult’s rolls. 1.5 rolls per person were served.
The total cook time was 25 minutes, with less than 5 minutes prep time. Total cost was just £2.79, or 70p per person.
