I really wanted a Conecuh dog with some onions on it and Mark wanted me to do some beans and rice so I did both, sort of. I didn't have any beans but I did have some black eye peas so I kind of ended up with hoppin john instead of beans and rice.
I started by cutting up some onions. Chopped for the hoppin john and sliced for the dogs.
While the onions are sauteing, you will need to start some rice.
When the onions are nice and soft, add some small pieced of sausage to the pan and let cook for a little while.
Break out the griddle and get it hot. I only have an electric griddle so I am jealous if you have one built in. Please don't rub it in!
When your griddle is hot, slap your sausage pieces (that you have spilt down the middle) on there to cook and don't forget the onions.
Back to the hoppin john. Drain and rinse your peas and add them to the pan with a little chicken broth.
When your rice is done, add some to the peas and sausage. You may have to add more broth, but you don't want it to be watery.
Now for one of my favorite parts. Drench a hot dog bun with mustard. Add sausage and more mustard down the middle. Top with onions. Put some hoppin john on the side and devour! Mark likes to put some on top of his dogs, but you don't have too.
I hope you all have a chance to enjoy some Conecuh sauage one day. If you cannot buy it in your neck of the woods, you can order it online. Everything is better with Conecuh sausage. No camping trip, cook out or hang over would be complete with out it!
