If you like the red onion sauce served on the hot dogs you get from the road side carts, you'll enjoy this easy to prepare sauce.

Great! Thank you. I usually buy the Boars Head onion sauce and I forgot to pick it up last week. I tried a different recipe first and it came out like over buttered ketchup paste. I tried yours the following day and it was wonderful. I will never buy store bought again when I can make it at home. Absolutely terrific. Comparable to Boars Head.
