LikeMeat Hot Dogs with Onion Rings

We top LikeMeat Like Sausages with pickled vegetables and serve them with crispy beer-battered onion rings.

These plant-based sausages get special toppings: quick-pickled cabbage, red onions, and cucumbers. The beer-battered onion rings are surprisingly easy to make and the perfect crunchy accompaniment to the hot dogs.
