VeganMoFo: Ladies Brunch Hot Dog Roll Up

So what’s that ladies? You want to bring some real class to your next vegan brunch or tea party? How about stuffing some not dog, bac’n, and cheeze into a soy burger patty? It’s lady like because it’s small on size and big on taste! In fact, it’s so dainty it’ll make you smack yo mama. Tell her I said hello.

I know I was gonna post my Iron Chef entry. However, I have to bow out because my pears are so not popping. Whatchu know bout me? They aren’t ripe and I don’t want to waste my food. Here’s what I’m makin: Raw Spiced Cheezecake with Pear and Cardamom Sauce. I will post about it later this week…as soon as my fruit is ready.

Today, I talk about this monstrosity. After viewing this thread at the PPK, I just had to make it. It sounded so disgusting that I needed to try it. There were some problems with it for me in it's original form, though. First of all, there was no way in hell I was eating something that huge. Secondly, if I didn’t like it I didn’t want it to be wasted. I had the genius idea of making it into mini patties and serving in mini buns about a month ago. It’s a hot dog roll down, if you will.
I didn’t grill these. I fried them in a bit of olive oil, which was the healthiest thing about them. It doesn’t taste bad. It definitely needs condiments, though. It’s a bit dry and surprisingly bland despite all the use of fake products.

I did up a batch of mini hamburger buns topped with poppy and sesame seeds. I can’t remember where I got the recipe. I usually have my hot dogs with mayo on the bun, mustard and dill relish. However, this is more burger-y. So ketchup, mustard and pickle are the way to go.
This was easily the most fun I’ve ever had while cooking. I’m not sure anything can top this. Am I right? Hey ladies! Get funky.

i love the gimme lean beef for burgers. these do look quite rich in your banner pictures, but i didn't realize they were that far over the edge! even if i don't go full throttle on this recipe, i would love to make my own little slider buns.

thanks for conducting this experiment lol.
