  • Skillet
  • bowl
  • Plate
For the dough:
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ cup cold water
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp chicken Bouillon base
For the filling:
  • 1 hotdog
  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • 1 tbsp Haitian Epis
  • ¼ cup onions
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • tsp onion powder
  • tsp dried thyme
  • ½ hot pepper
  • tsp garlic powder
  • pinch of black pepper
  • Add water and the chicken Bouillon base to a small bowl and mix until the base dissolves in water.
    Sift the flour into a medium bowl and add salt with baking powder. Mix well to combine.
  • Add the water mixture to the flour with a spoon and mix until the dough forms. Then, using your hands, begin kneading the dough until it’s not sticky.
    Transfer the dough onto the countertop and continue kneading. Once you shape the dough into a log form, cut it in half and continue the process until you have 8 pieces.
    Roll each ball out with a rolling pin. Separate them with parchment paper and set them aside until you’re ready to form the patties.
  • Add oil and Haitian Epis to a small skillet and heat on low to medium heat. Then, add diced hotdogs and sauté for about a minute.
    After, add hot pepper and onions and continue sautéing for another 2 minutes.
  • Add dry seasoning, mix, then turn the heat off and mix in a diced hard-boiled egg. Pour the filling into a large bowl and set it aside.
  • Add about 1 tablespoon of the hotdog-egg filling to half of the rolled-out flour disc. Fold another half on top to cover the filling. Press the edges with the fork to seal the Pate Kode.
  • Add about 1-1 ½ cup of oil to a frying pan on medium-high heat. Once the oil is heated place the patties in a pan and fry on each side until they are golden brown.
    Line the plate with a paper towel and place the Haitian Pate Kode to drain the excess oil. Serve with your favorite sauce immediately once the oil has drained.
