DIY Gluten Free Hot Dog Bar

I wanted to do something fun for my husband's birthday dinner...

As a Pinterest addict, I've seen lots of different ideas for DIY bars; Bruschetta bars, burger bars etc. It is such a fun (and easy) way to feed a crowd. You can use whatever kinds of toppings you want, but these toppings go really well.

The decorations I used are from Tiger and the flags and squeezy bottles are from eBay. I made the stand for the sauces out of a Converse shoe box and some wrapping paper.

To make 8 hot dogs you will need:

4 gluten free baguettes (I use M&S)
8 large gluten free sausages (I use M&S Posh Dogs)
3 tomatoes, sliced
1 small jar jalapenos, drained
1/2 little gem lettuce
2 red onions, peeled and finely sliced
50g cheddar cheese, grated
1 x tub guacamole
4 small corn on the cobs
Plus; ketchup, mayo and American mustard (make sure it is gluten free)

Simply set up a small table, decorate and place all the toppings (except the onions) in individual ramekins and put on a table with the sauces.

Cook the sausages per packet instructions.

Heat a splash of oil in a small frying pan and gently cook the onions until soft. Transfer to a ramekin and add to the table.

At the same time, heat a griddle pan and cook the corn on high for about 10 minutes, turning regularly until charred. Serve in a basket and place on the table.

Heat the baguettes up in the oven per packet instruction. Slice in half width ways and then slice each half open, but don't cut all the way through so the sausage can sit nicely in the baguette like a hot dog bun. Place in a bowl and add to your table.

Serve up the sausages, hand out some plates and let everyone serve themselves.
