    lazyme's Note:

    I haven't had an A&W chili dog for years, but from what I can remember, this tastes just like it. This is listed as one serving, but the sauce makes enough for about 10 servings unless you use more on your dog like I do. The sauce can be frozen for future use.

      We have an A&W rootbeer stand not far from us and these chili dogs tasted very close to what we remember. I used a package of ground round that was about 1 1/2 pounds so I added another 1/3 cup of water. Covered and let simmer for the 30 minutes and it was perfect. We just topped our dogs with the sauce and enjoyed them a lot. Cant wait for lunch tomorrow! Served with aHardDaysNight's Hellmann's the Original Potato Salad #304182 and had an indoor picnic for supper. Thank you lazyme for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for the cookathon.

      Makes delicious chili dogs! We like to add mustard & chopped onions and Redhot sauce for that final touch. Great football watching & kid-friendly food! Thanks a bunch! ~Sue
