Impress your guests. Or bring your Green Stogies to a cook-out! Jumbo veggie hot dog wrapped in cooked collard green leaf (hot or cold doesn’t matter) spread with mustard. Looks like a Stogie! Served in a potato bread hot dog bun spread with dill pickle relish and a stream of ketchup. Top all with chopped red onion and another stream of ketchup! 

Makes 1

15 MINUTE COLLARD GREENS. Make these greens. Refrigerate for use with THE GREEN STOGIE.

1 jumbo veggie hot dog (I used Field Roast Frankfurter – thawed – boiled in casing according to pkg. instruction; peel casing and discard)

1 cooked and drained collard green leaf (be sure it isn’t wet, otherwise you’ll make the bun too soggy)

prepared yellow mustard

fresh grind black pepper

1 potato bread hot dog bun

dill pickle relish


chopped red onion

Lay out 1 collard green leaf on counter. Spread evenly with prepared yellow mustard.

Sprinkle lightly with black pepper.

Place cooked veggie hot dog near edge of leaf closest to you, then begin to roll hot dog in leaf. When halfway done, tuck in ends, then continue to roll.

Spread dill relish in hot dog bun, followed by a light stream of ketchup.

Place Green Stogie in bun. Top with chopped red onion and another light stream of ketchup. Eat and like it!

I know, you love it – just like me!

Notes: It’s okay to use the collard leaves cold. Just be sure to blot dry. The hot dog will immediately warm the leaf when wrapped around it.
