2 min read
Fill hot dog buns with sausage meat, beans and a spicy tomato sauce for an American-inspired supper.

Preparation Time: 10 Minutes

Cooking Time: 20 Minutes

Serves: 4


  • 400g pack of sausages
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 400g can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 400g can of kidney beans in chilli sauce
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 4 large hot dog rolls
  • 140g cheddar
  • Potato wedges, to serve


  1. Remove the sausages from their skins and break up into small pieces. Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion and sausages until the onion has softened and the sausages are golden. Stir in the garlic, then cook for 1 minute before adding the tomatoes, tomato purée, kidney beans, and chilli powder. Bring to the boil and cook for about 10 minutes until thickened.

  2. Split the rolls down the middle and toast the cut sides on a griddle pan. Spoon the hot sausage chilli into the rolls and finish with the cheese. Serve with potato wedges, if you like.
