Hot Dog and Nori

I’ve worked in three Korean preschools during my whole lifetime and I have to admit those were the most fun I’ve had working, ever!

They served some strange meals, but they were absolutely tasty. One dish they would serve to the kids was sliced hotdogs in ketchup with a side of rice and Nori (seaweed). Asian kids can just munch on Nori like chips. Even my son enjoys it too. I can give him a 1/4 sheet of roasted seaweed and he’ll be happy for a while.

I decided to make it for breakfast the other day. For the hotdog, I pan fried it after slicing it into smaller pieces. Then I added some ketchup, a little soy sauce and a little sugar. After the sauce thickened, I removed it from the fire. I plated it next to small sheets of roasted seaweed and rice. I put the rice in the frying pan to soak up the remaining sauce. I wouldn’t want it to go to waste.

Now for the fun part. You take a small sheet of Nori then place a tablespoon of rice on it. Then you place a few slices of hot dog on top, fold the seaweed and enjoy!

Kids love eating this way, I guess you can try it with other meats too! =)
