Spicy Italian Hot Dogs with Giardiniera Relish & Maple Dijon Mustard


Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ease of Preparation: Easy


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 Spicy Italian Sausages
  • 1/2 jar of giardiniera
  • 2 tablespoons giardiniera juice from the jar
  • 1/3 cup Dijon Mustard
  • 1/3 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 honey wheat or pretzel hot dog buns

Recipe tools:

  • Small pot
  • Medium pan
  • Food processor
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Small whisk


  1. Making the sausages: Heat the extra-virgin olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Stab some holes in the sausages with a fork. Turn the heat down to medium-low and add the sausages to the pan. Cook them for 20 minutes, turning them every 4 minutes.
  2. Making giardinera relish: in a small food processor or food chopper, with a fork remove half the veggies from the jar, add two tablespoons of juice from the jar and pulse veggies 2 or 3 times. Do not over pulse or the veggies will just become mushy and lose their snap and texture.
  3. Making the maple Dijon mustard: in a small mixing bowl whisk Dijon mustard, maple syrup and lemon juice.
  4. Remove sausage from pan, lightly toast buns on grill or in a 350 degree oven face down for 5 minutes. Add sausage to bun, drizzle with maple Dijon mustard and top with giardiniera relish.
