SIZZLE YOUR MIND WITH SIZZLING DISHES
Sizzling is a word which means “very hot” when you looked it up on the dictionary. With this meaning, there are two interpretations of sizzling when it comes to food. Me and my friend had a mini debate on what a sizzling dish really is. We tried different restaurants and got their best-selling sizzling dish and see what we got.
Sizzling is usually associated with sisig. But to be honest, anything can be a sizzling dish if you’d make it to.
What me and my friend found out is that in a sizzling dish, either the food is super spicy with a lot of chilies or the food is served on a sizzling plate while sizzling. Most of the time, sizzling dishes are super spicy dishes served on a sizzling platter. In the end, no debate needed, right?
How is a sizzling platter different from other serving plates? Serving plates are usually made of different materials like glass, porcelain or ceramic. They are created beautifully as using them adds to the overall presentation of the food.
Meanwhile, a sizzling plate/platter is made up of cast iron with a wooden plate underneath. The concept of using sizzling plates is to contain the heat of the food until it reaches the customer or the person to eat it. In this way, the final cooking of the food is finished right in front of the person! Now I understand why most sizzling plates crack a raw egg on top and then the egg cooks as the plate cools down.
SIZZLING MEATLOAF HOTDOG RECIPE
If you look into life closely, you’ll notice that all sizzling dishes are so good as pulutan. Why do you think is that so?
Sizzling plates are a must-have during night celebrations full of drinking. It may be anything from sizzling sisig, bangus, tofu, squid and so much more. Aside from kalderetang kambing, sizzling plates are one of the best scored by my drinking buddies.
As mentioned, you can make a sizzling dish out of anything you want. Some of my drinking buddies did a surprise visit in the middle of the week simply because we miss each other. In these kind of situations, quick thinking will save our pulutan.
I saw my canned goods at the pantry and immediately spotted my meatloaf. Got up to the fridge and saw my hotdogs. These two ingredients will make a good combo for a sizzling plate. One good thing in using these two is that they are seasoned already, and is already palatable. I made a quick ketchup-based sauce and coat them babies out.
Some kids who passed by our drinking table sometimes get some meatloaf and hotdog pieces. I knew they also liked it. With that, I added this dish to the family dinner where I added bell peppers for a hint of freshness and I used green chilies instead of red.

HOW TO MAKE SIZZLING MEATLOAF HOTDOG
Prepare to be amazed as this might be the easiest sizzling dish you can ever imagine. With our two main ingredients being already ready to use, this dish will be ready in a blink of an eye!
Cut your meatloaf and hotdogs in whatever cut you like. I prefer them to be medium-sized as to kind of resemble meat chunks. Fry both of them separately and then prepare the sauce.
The sauce is very quick and simple to make. All you need to do is to saute the onions for a bit just to extract its sweet flavor, and then add the ketchup, oyster sauce and butter. That’s it! When every ingredient come together. Add the meatloaf and hotdogs in the pan and make sure to coat every single piece of them. In this recipe, I added bell peppers and chilies which are totally optional. Green chilies are not really that spicy, best for those with a low heat tolerance but wanted to try eating spicy dishes.
And now, the best part happens. Transfer the hotdogs and meatloaf to a sizzling plate and serve them while sizzling! Some people adds raw egg on top of this dish and you can try that one too. The sizzling truly adds salivation to the mouth!
