This is my mom's recipe for coney dogs. It's great for people who want an extra topping on their hot dogs but dislike the taste of chili. Cooking time is approximate; the goal is to cook the mixture until liquid is absorbed. I sometimes flavor the hamburger with minced onion, salt, pepper and other spices while browning it but it's not really necessary.


  1. In a large frying pan, fry hamburger on medium heat until done.
  2. Add tomato soup and water.
  3. Stir to combine.
  4. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently for approximately 30 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  5. Spoon warm coney sauce onto prepared hot dogs and enjoy.
