Aiken Pool Hall Hot Dogs

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

This is reportedly the recipe for the topping used on the famous Aiken, SC City Billiards "pool hall hot dogs", with a minor adjustment made on my part regarding the amount of onions used (original recipe states "4 medium onions"). It's a sweet and tangy mixture; I like it topped with lots of shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese. (I've made this with ground turkey and it tastes pretty fine, too!) This makes enough topping for about 4 hot dogs.
