RECIPE: Icelandic Dog

Apple ketchup and remoulade make theses dogs extra savory. —INGRAIN, Summer 2019



Lamb franks are tricky to find; substitute a good-quality beef or other full-flavored dog from an artisan producer. For the mustard, simply add a little honey to brown mustard or try a brand like Stonewall Kitchen Sweet Honey Mustard. Use the extra apple ketchup on burgers and the remoulade on fish, and both are killer on french fries.
