Taiwanese hotdogs are simply made by wrapping the smaller Taiwanese sausage in the bigger glutinous rice sausage. Then some other ingredients are added such as peanut powder, cucumber and pepper sauce.
Where is it from?
Taiwanese hotdogs are similar to the American hotdogs. It comes from a creative idea of a Taiwanese vendor who liked both glutinous rice sausage and Taiwanese sausage but was too lazy to eat them separately. Therefore, he figured out a way to eat both of them at the same time. That was to combine these two foods together. Unexpectedly, the combination became an overnight sensation.
How do you prepare it?
The way to make Taiwanese hotdogs is to charbroil glutinous rice sausage and Taiwanese sausage, cut the glutinous rice sausage and then put in ingredients such as peanut powder, cucumber, cilantro, prickled vegetable, garlic, pepper sauce, etc. Later, use the bigger glutinous rice sausage to roll the smaller Taiwanese sausage up. Whether to add some sauces or not is based on personal preference. Normally, vendors put garlic and prickled vegetables into Taiwanese hotdogs.
Where do you buy it?
Taiwanese hotdogs are a common snack in every Taiwanese night market.
