  1. To make the dressing, put the soured cream, cheese and garlic in a small bowl. Mix well until combined and fairly smooth. Set aside until needed.
  2. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the frankfurters and cook for 5 mins, or until heated through.
  3. Add the butter and chilli sauce to the pan. Once the butter has melted, leave to bubble for 1 min, until slightly thickened, then gently swirl the pan around to coat the frankfurters in the butter mixture. Remove from the heat.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan over a high heat. Toast the rolls, cut-side down, until griddle marks appear.
  5. Stuff each roll with a small handful of lettuce and a hot dog, drizzling over a little sauce from the pan. Serve with the blue cheese dressing.
