1 small onion
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 tablespoons butter, plus melted butter for brioche rolls
Salt and black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon granulated garlic
8 large good quality knockwurst or hot dogs
8 brioche lobster rolls or soft hot dog rolls, split and toasted, brushed with melted butter
Mustard and ketchup (in squirt bottles) and hot sauce of choice, for topping
Soak potatoes in salted water for a few minutes then drain well; grate onion into potatoes. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat with canola oil; add butter to oil and melt. Add potatoes and onions to the skillet, and season with salt, pepper, paprika and garlic. Cook hash browns until crispy and brown, turning occasionally.
Warm hot dogs in simmering water to heat through. Remove and split them open, cutting them lengthwise to open them up like books. Cook dogs on a hot griddle until casings and meat are crispy on both sides. Remove to toasted, buttered rolls. In the same skillet, fry eggs over-easy or medium.
Top dogs with mustard then potatoes; drizzle with ketchup, top with egg and dot with hot sauce. Serve.
