  4. Bake wrapped sausages for 40-45 minutes or until the bacon is crispy and the brown sugar has melted.
  5. While hot dogs are baking… Trim your brioche rolls to mini hot dog bun size.
  6. Make Shishito Pepper Relish: Add 1/2 cup thinly sliced Red Onion to skillet. Cook and stir over medium 4 minutes or until tender.
  7. Add 6 oz. stemmed and chopped shishito peppers.
  8. Cook 4 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally.
  9. Stir in 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar, scraping up any browned bits. Cook, uncovered, 30 seconds. Remove from heat.
  10. Season with salt and black pepper. Chill, covered.
  11. Place finished hot dogs in buns, drizzle with mayo, top with Shishito Pepper Relish.
