Essentials recipe Perfect TV food and for outdoor eating, these extra-hot hotdogs are the grown-up version of a children's favourite.


  • 8 good-quality sausages
  • 2 red peppers, sliced
  • 1 red onion, sliced

  • 4 large hotdog rolls
  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 pinch of chilli powder
  • 2tsp cumin seeds, crushed

Top tip: Make a huge bowl of the relish for barbecues: it tastes just as delicious with burgers too.


  1. Cook the onion and pepper in the oil for 5 mins until they start to char.
  2. Reduce heat, add the garlic and spices and cook for a further 2 mins.
  3. Pour in the passata and 150ml water, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 mins.
  4. Grill the sausages for 10 mins until cooked. Split rolls and fill with sauce and sausages.
