If you’re on the hunt for quick-and-delicious (not to mention healthy) meal ideas at this time of year then you’ll love these designer hot dogs. I’ve used Tip Top’s new Deluxe Torpedo Rolls because they’re really yummy, just the right size and a whole lot more flash than a standard hot dog bun. These rolls are part of Tip Top’s new Deluxe range which includes Corn Dusted Burger Buns, Corn Dusted Torpedo Rolls, Brioche-Style Buns and Brioche-Style Sliders. All three of these hot-diggity-dogs have become firm family favourites and I’m sure you’ll enjoy them as much as we do. Oh and don’t forget to scroll down to the bottom of the page to enter to win a $100 supermarket voucher to try them yourself and while you’re at it you can enter Tip Top’s fab $10,000 Build a Better Burger challenge too.
