I'm suddenly in the mood for a hot dog, but after reading the ingredients on the hot dogs in the store, I left them on the shelf and bought plain ground beef instead. I also have ground turkey in the house.

Is there some way to take the ground beef and/or turkey in the house, and cook it in a way that mimics the taste of hot dogs? I don't really care about the casing- I'll happily skip that part and have the shape be imperfect, but I'd like to figure out which spices are needed for a "typical hot dog flavor."

The only recipe I found online uses pork.

I don't know how to make hotdogs, but if you can ever get Applegate Farms products, they make all natural hotdogs:

Quoted Text
Ingredients:  Turkey, Water, Contains Less Than 2% Of The Following: Sodium Lactate (From Beets), Sea Salt, Spices, Paprika, Garlic, Onion Powder.


they also make beef and chicken ones.  It would be better and cooler if you could make your own, though.

Not hot dogs, but you might get some inspiration from Jill's turkey sausage recipe.


It is not my responsibility to convince anyone of anything.

None of the all-natural brands of hot dogs are kosher, and none of the kosher ones are without added nitrites and/or "flavorings.' I do buy the conventional kosher beef hot dogs once or twice a year, but I want to be more compliant right now since I haven't been feeling great. Besides, money is tight right now and I don't want to spend money on hot dogs; I already have ground beef (and spices and assorted veggies) in the house.

I'm probably going to play around with what's in my kitchen later tonight, and then post the recipe afterwards.

Just add the spices that are in your favorite hot dogs.  It will probably end up with a texture more like sausage, but I'm sure it will still be good

Looking up the ingredients of kosher hot dogs, I'm finding garlic and paprika mentioned specifically, but other than that it's vague things like sodium nitrite,spice,  and natural flavorings. How do I replicate the flavors of "spice"  and "natural flavorings"?

I would say garlic, onion, and paprika are the main flavors...maybe pepper?  personally I would add mustard and turmeric, but I add those to everything

here's a homemade hotdog recipe:

Yeah, I found that recipe too, but as it consists of pork, pork fat, sugar, and milk, and it's why I asked on here. The recipe as listed there is completely unusable for me.

I know jayneeo, but none of those brands are kosher. The only kosher, all natural sausages I ever found were Neshama brand, and they're made with chicken, not beef (so I can't feed them to my B son) and they're REALLY expensive. I haven't bought them in over a year. The only beef hot dogs I can find with a reliable kosher certification all have "junk" added.

I ended up sauteeing up ground  beef with veggies (onions and celery) and added salt, paprika, garlic, and cumin to it. It was quite yummy, though it wasn't hot dogs.

I thought I'd have more time to play around the kitchen this evening, but the thing my kids were going to was at 7, not 6, so by the time I left I just wanted to cook something quickly. I'll experiment with hot dogs/ sausages another time.

I really enjoy Applegate Farms Organic Great American Hot dog.  I tried their Stadium Style Organic Beef Hot Dog in the red package and I liked the blue packaged ones better.  

I have also tried several other brands, but this one is my favorite.  They also have an Organic Turkey dogs that are good for when you want to eat a bit leaner. I like that they do not contain nitrates.
