DH loves this recipe so much, that when he retires, he's considering buying a mobile concession stand to haul behind our RV to sell these hotdogs. We add cheese, onion and mustard, but that is your choice. This freezes well.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Drain.
  3. Combine hamburg onion mix and remaining ingredients.
  4. Simmer 2 hours.

If you are going to add a can of store bought chili, then make this ? Why not just enough cans ?

I've been making this for years and just never got around to reviewing it. It is wonderful! I make no changes except for using a larger can of Hormel - only because I can never find the lunchbox size. The leftovers freeze well, too. Thanks, Deely, for the great recipe!

I made this for our Memorial Day cookout at the beach. It was a huge hit!! The only thing I did differently was to lower the salt to 1/4 tsp. Thanks for a new Family Keeper, Deely!!
