Banh Mi Hot Dog
Bánh mì [bahn mee] is a Vietnamese term for bread and a popular sandwich that’s served on a French baguette with cold cuts, pickled veggies, and a spicy mayonnaise.
For this hot dog version, swap the baguette for a bolillo [boh-LEE-yoh] roll. It’s similar in texture to a baguette, but the football-like shape means it’s sturdy enough to hold the hot dog, deli-sliced ham, tangy vegetable salad, and spicy mayonnaise you pile on this sandwich.

Test Kitchen Tip
If you can’t find bolillo rolls, its OK to use hot dog buns, just be sure they’re sturdy enough to hold everything
Preheat grill to medium. Brush grill grate with oil.
For the salad, whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, sugar, and ginger; toss with cucumber, carrots, cilantro, and radishes.
For the hot dogs, whisk together mayonnaise and chili garlic sauce.
Grill ham packet and hot dogs, covered, until dogs blister, turning dogs occasionally, 5 minutes. Turn off grill and place rolls inside to warm, 1–2 minutes. Line each roll with a quarter of the ham; top with hot dogs, mayonnaise, and salad.
