Sausage and Hot Dog Recipes

sloppy joe with barbecue sauce and some sausage

The Spruce / Diana Rattray

Hot dogs and sausages are easy on the budget and can be used in all kinds of meal combinations. They go with mac and cheese, beans, and scalloped potatoes, or serve them along with mashed potatoes or a rice dish.

While you might not like the preservatives in many of the smoked or cured products, there are plenty of "uncured" sausages and hot dogs on the market these days, and many are made without added preservatives or hormones.
