Crushed ramen noodles and strips of roasted seaweed make for a truly unique hot dog experience.


  • 1/3 cup ketchup

  • 1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce

  • 1 tsp soy sauce

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise

  • 85-g pkg ramen noodles, crumbled (discard seasoning packet)

  • 1 sheet nori (seaweed), cut into small strips


  • Combine ketchup, Worcestershire and soy sauce in a small zip-top bag.

  • Heat a medium non-stick frying pan over medium. Add ramen. Toast, stirring occasionally, until golden, 3 min.

  • Cut a small piece off the corner of the bag. Drizzle ketchup mixture and mayonnaise over hot dogs. Top with ramen and nori strips.

  • Recipe makes enough toppings for 8 hot dogs. We recommend barbecuing hot dogs for 5 to 10 min. (depending on size), until grill marks form and hot dogs are cooked through. Lightly toast buns on the grill, if desired. Serve hot.
