This is a Very good hot dog sauce. It makes a lot, so it's handy to freeze in family-size portions and always have sauce for hot dogs. We always have it at cook-outs.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown ground chuck, onions and garlic together& drain fat.
  2. Add remaining ingredients.
  3. Simmer together 1 hour or until desired consistency (should be like a thick chili).
  4. Serve over hot dogs on buns, smother with finely-diced onions, if desired, and enjoy.

This truly was a yummy sauce, I divided it in half, only my hubby and me, but it was still perfect!!! He loved it....

Very easy to make although the prep was longer than 5 minutes more like 20min. I had to simmer it longer also. But the finished product was excellent. I have been trying to clone a sauce from an area hot dog shop for years and this is better so it is a KEEPER. Thanks for sharing! CandleLady9ah

Until I saw your recipe I had never thought of having a sauce ready to use for hot dogs...this was really great. I'm just getting around to posting some reviews so I wanted to be sure and tell you that this made the family happy when we decided to have hot dogs for dinner. Thanks for posting!
