Boiled hotdogs?

Do you also boil cervelas?

Tom
Pro tip for high turn over grilling. Simmer your Cervelats, Bratwurst and then just sear them on high heat on the grill.

Useful if you have to feed a whole school on sports day.

Re: BBQ sites around Luzern (and american-like hotdogs)

OP, you may want to pre-order if you buy the fresh stuff, can usually be done by phone as well. That simplifies pickup, and you're sure to get what you need and planned for - I hear quite a few people are planning stuff for the coming weekend.

Aldi appears to be having their "American" weeks, may be worth checking out.

Re: BBQ sites around Luzern (and american-like hotdogs)

I didnít find any hotdog buns at Denner so Iím headed to Aldi now to check out the ďAmerican DaysĒ you mentioned!

And I donít mind sharing a grill with others at all, or asking my friends to bring something. But I do want to bring the majority (since I already own most of the American stuff that they wonít have).

Also, Iíve never boiled hotdogs before. We always had them on the grill for 4th of July. So Iíll give it a try some time.

Same for pasta. Cook until a few minutes from done, than boil for a couple minutes when needed.

Re: BBQ sites around Luzern (and american-like hotdogs)

FYI if anyone looks at this thread in the future, I ended up getting the sandwich breads from Migros that someone linked earlier. They were great. I bought hamburger buns from Aldi and Coop and some of the American condiments at Aldi. And then I ended up having the bbq at my apartment since less people were coming and I couldnít find a sunny spot that I was sure wouldnít be filled up with people that I could also travel to easily. I forgot to get a picture of all the food but hereís some of the spread. Thanks all for the help!

Actually, when I do them on tomato sauce I always do that and finish them in the sauce.

I liked the tip about simmering Cervelat and Bratwurst in advance.

Actually you've been here long enough to know, that any hotdog you get in Switzerland (streetfood) is boiled

Two days ago was the first time I saw them being fried /grilled - two of them wrapped in bacon. (And my Swiss-Wienerli-mind wondered if they get done properly that way as they can't be eaten raw. )

Glad the bread did the trick, OP. Sometimes I get them, simply put some butter and ham and some gherkins into them and there it is, the ol' SBB-sandwich feeling. The things we do .....

Which is why I make my own.

Boiled are vile.

Then again, they cook corn on the cob for more than 5 minutes, even more vile!

You got a point there. I eat them about twice a year and every time I think to myself after "why the hell did I eat that?!".

I will try the fried wrapped in bacon version though ..... before I might give up on them all together.

Perhaps they were over-boiled? My husband prepared some the other day when the weather was too bad for the grill and I was shocked at how tender and juicy they were.

Iím not usually a party planner. For food, I have american condiments and sides and can make burgers and get buns, but I donít know if there is anything close to an american hotdog here or where to get hot dog buns. So I'll probably just skip that.


So confined you have not visited a grocery store apparently
