Lunch with Ye Olde Oak

Hi guys! Hope you are all keeping well and staying safe in these difficult times. Sorry for my radio silence on here, working from home and calling friends/family has been keeping me super busy! But I am still posting over on instagram daily. This is a foodie post! For all of your working from home or self isolating a quick and easy lunch is sometimes all we need. That’s where Ye Olde Oak comes in (as long as you aren’t vegetarian!!). Their tinned hot dogs have been my favourite for a long time now…

Ye Olde Oak

Ye Olde Oak, are prized with their long running credit-ability of yummyness established in 1949. They certainly have evolved over the last 71 years. They have developed their Mission Statement over the last 20 years to allow them to become more sustainable. Therefore Ye Olde Oak has been able to donate stock and run events for food banks and charities in the Halifax region. However, now well established within the world of sustainability and charity input, Ye Olde Oak are now looking to spread that effort further afield with a National focus.

The Ye Olde Oak range includes:

  • Classic ‘The Original and all time favourite’
  • American Style ‘The Smoky flavoured one’
  • The Premium ‘The Posh one’
  • Peri Peri ‘Spice it up!’
  • Low Salt ‘Still big on flavour’
  • Cocktail ‘Start the Party’
  • Fiery ‘Something is burning!’
  • The Classic ham and The Chicken Roll

I created 2 easy recipes which include the Ye Olde Oak tinned hot dogs.

The Simple Dog

Ingredients:

1 Tin of Ye Olde Oak Hot Dogs

A pack of Hot Dog Rolls

Tube of squeezy Mustard

Grab yourself a tin of Ye Olde Oak Hot Dogs, empty the tin of hot dogs into a saucepan, with the brine. All you need to do is boil the hot dogs for approx 2 minutes on a low heat, or 60 seconds on a high heat. I always leave a little longer, but that’s my personal preference. Whilst cooking cut your hot dog rolls straight down the middle so you’ve got plenty of depth for the hot dogs. Once the hot dogs have cooked, drain out the brine/water with a colander. Pop a hot dog into your roll, depending on the size you might be able to squeeze two hot dogs in…. Then finish off with a good helping of mustard (or ketchup).

The Italian Dog 

Ingredients:

One small tin of Heinz macaroni cheese

One tin of Ye Olde Oak Hot Dogs

A pack of Hot Dog Rolls

Grab yourself a tin of Ye Olde Oak Hot Dogs, empty the tin of hot dogs into a saucepan, with the brine. All you need to do is boil the hot dogs for approx 2 minutes on a low heat, or 60 seconds on a high heat. I always leave a little longer, but that’s my personal preference. Whilst cooking cut your hot dog rolls straight down the middle so you’ve got plenty of depth for the hot dogs. Pop your tin of macaroni in a separate saucepan and bring to the boil. Once the hot dogs are cooked drain the brine with a colander and pop a hot dog into your roll. You may be able to fit more than one depending on the size of the rolls. Then don’t forget to carefully spoon your macaroni cheese on top for the perfect Italian dog.

So there’s two simple, super quick recipes and my favourite ways to enjoy the Ye Olde Oak Hot Dogs! Let me know if you have your own way to enjoy the hot dogs, I’ve love to hear them.

    Omg why have I never thought of Mac and Cheese hot dogs? Typically I put cheese underneath the hot dog in the bun (spicy cheese!), onions on top, with mustard and ketchup!
