Firehouse Hot Dog Meat Sauce.

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Firehousecook AKA C

Loving Hot Dogs as I do this came about through years of fooling around with various ingredients. I figured I had a winner when no matter the quantity I made up there was never any left overs. This recipe can be doubled, tripled, or times 10. Church Summer gatherings, Ball Games or whatever. This is very straight forward and easy to prepare. Enjoy, F/C

Horrible! Tasted like sloppy joes and way toooooo sweet. I tried counteracting it with red wine vinegsr, cider vinegar, lemon juice, cayenne, cocoa --- all those toned down the sweetness but it's still much too sweet for a hot dog sauce.
