This is it! It's so close to the original. There is something missing..i'm not sure what it is, maybe a bit of sweet..or a tangy something. Not sure, and not complaining. By the time you get the hot dog, onion and mustard, your eating a Flint coney.
I am from Flint and also grew up with Coney Island. I love this recipe. I cooked it quite a while. Serrve them with diced white onions and mustard. The hot dogs should be boiled and the buns stemed. My husband also loves them. Thanks Bethany.
Coming from the family of the Original Receipt, (Simeon "Sam" Brayan) this is a close copy. There are only three people who have the Original Receipt and it is held very close. My mother was his granddaughter and even the grandchildren dont have it. There are two living children and they are the only two to know it.
I must also state never boil the kogels they must be fried slow..... not in a deep fryer either. just butter and slow.
Great job on this receipt though.
This was fantastic and the closest thing to Coney Island hot dogs in Kalamazoo, Michigan!
excellent for us "dry " coney lovers...which I am!!! I grew up in the flint area and ate a the one that was right downtown in a small small dinethat in my memory was more like a train car...ANYWAY this sure satisified a long craving and tasted so wonderful too..thank you for sharing...
