"Teena's mum and dad used to run a pub as far south in Tasmania as you can go," says Alistair Wise, "and had procured an old hot-dog toaster - the kind you'd find in your old corner store. We tried toasting some brioche on the spit, but the bread would split and our 'hot dog' more closely resembled the Titanic than food. So we changed to a milk roll, which allows you to toast the centre perfectly without the whole thing falling apart, and also works mighty fine with an egg and cress filling. Sorry, getting a little side-tracked. Back to that hot frozen dog."
Note This recipe is from Sweet Envy ($45, hbk) by Alistair Wise and Teena Kearney-Wise, published by Murdoch Books, and has been reproduced with minor GT style changes.
