  • 12 frankfurters
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 8 hot dog rolls


  • Cut each frankfurter into long strips then use a small knife to cut 'forks' in the end of each strip. (see note 1)
  • Heat the oil in a large fry pan, and once hot add the frankfurter strips.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes until hot and lightly colored.
  • Cut the hot dog rolls down the centre and top with the frankfurter ‘snake tongues’.
  • Ketchup makes a great 'bloody' sauce for these.


  1. When you cut your frankfurter if you aim to get a little bit of the outside and inside on each strip, when you fry them off the sausage will naturally curl up.
