Serving Hot Dogs:

  5. Sprinkle some chopped capsicum and onions over the edges between the bun and the hot dog.
  6. Squeeze out mustard sauce over the hot dog.
  7. Now squeeze out some tomato sauce over the hot dog.

Note: If you want them spicier, spread some green/red chilli sauce over the inner side of the buns before placing the hot dogs.
