I kind of took both ideas and sort of mashed the two together.

The sausages and hot dogs I used.

Instead of making my own dough I used store bought pizza dough and I didn't have a clay tool but I did have a paper clip and it did the job just fine.
Sausages wrapped in the dough and grooves cut in the dogs and a couple stuffed with some sharp cheddar

Made a soda water bath and dunked each sausage and dog two at a time for a minute

Approx. 15 minutes later everything is done


Served with some tomato soup and some plain ole yellow mustard for dipping.
