Because everything tastes better over there.................I thought I'd show you what we used to grab for a quick lunch ( along with almost every one of the 30,000 attendee's ) at the fabric shows we went to.
Every now and then I'll make them here at home
Parisian Hotdogs ( & frites of course )
I thought I'd surprise John with them !
A hot dog in a baguette !
( the thought just occurred to me that although I don't post a lot about food - when I do it's always something extremely fattening and unhealthy )
John's on a ciabatta kick ( normally we buy baguettes ) so I used that instead.
You warm the bread in the oven - just enough so that the outside is slightly crispy -
And then you dig a hole through the center
When you buy these in Paris they're on a long baguette - I made small ones.
You can either squirt your mustard inside the bread - or spread it on the weiner itself - and insert it into the
hole ! ( of course it's dijon mustard in Paris - I was out so used French's which I prefer anyway )
Simple, n'est pas?
You can even cheat and add some of that tres gauche North American red stuff on your frites !
And that little difference between a hotdog bun and a baguette? Magnifique mes amis !
John came home with these ( because 10,000 calories wasn't enough for dinner ! )
Bad Monkey Mais Souffle ( popcorn ) -
They are to die !
The company started here in Montreal - by 2 brothers who used to be called " bad monkeys " by they're Mom..................Gourmet popcorn never tasted so good.
Popcorn after a Parisian hotdog you may ask?
Well it's perfectly acceptable if the popcorn is CREME BRULEE flavored !
We sat outside on the deck eating our dinner -
But we may as well have been sitting outside the Notre Dame Cathedral - or that's what I pretended anyway
I think Bad Monkey ships to the States if you'd like to try them ( this is not a sponsored post - just someone who loves popcorn ) they're link is HERE
Last night was the first time I tried it - incroyable ! ( incredible ! )
Here are some of the flavors
Bonne journee everyone !!!

THE DIY DREAMER FLUSTER BUSTER
I like your Parisian style of 'chien chaud'! Clever gal. Hubby loves popcorn but preferably plain, although caramel corn (creme brule) or chocolate sounds more my style. Yum! Have a super day. It's going to be a hot humid one here once the clouds leave.ReplyDelete
Yum and more yum. The hot dogs done this way look so yummy. I am a big popcorn fan and slather on some carmel oh yeah! Have a great day.
You have Parisian style hot dogs and we have pigs in a blanket. HaHa! But....we do use croissants to wrap the pigs in.ReplyDelete
I am going to try those Parisian style hot dogs!ReplyDelete
What a perfect meal for enjoying outdoors! -Marci @ Stone Cottage AdventuresReplyDelete
Très gauche? ==American red stuff?===I have this discussion all the time with my NZ friend and my Philippine daughter-in-law as they dip their frites (Fries) in Mayonnaise. Made me laugh anyway---, either way it looks pretty darn good and fattening.ReplyDelete
Now I'm really hungry for a hot dog and fries. LOL...ReplyDelete
Ok, I am going to have to try the baguette, the hot dog buns always fall apart. :pReplyDelete
Yummy! And oh, that popcorn! Yes, please...maybe jalapeño as a nod to Texas?
If I am going to pick soft, warm bread bits out of a baguette (or any kind of loaf for that matter), I will dip them in the butter dish before gobbling them down. The inside is the choicest bits of a loaf of bread. My mom likes the crust, so together we could polish off loaves and loaves of bread — if we were so inclined. You should see Katie and I when we go to Panera. We order extra bread and peel them apart buttering as we go! Oh...we haven't had a hot dog in a very long time, but bread...ReplyDelete
Yummy!! Tis the season of campfires and this might just become a new family favorite. Cheers to Canadian companies too. That popcorn looks too tempting.ReplyDelete
Yum! What a fun, sophisticated way to eat a hot dog!ReplyDelete
