Meat Sauce for Hot Dogs

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Lvs2Cook

When I was growing up, a hot dog wasn't a hot dog without meat sauce, mustard, and onions (and fries and gravy). I got this version off the internet and it's very close to the meat sauce I remember.

This was a very good meat sauce over hot dogs. You really could forgo the hot dogs and use it as a sloppy joe mixture, and it would be just as good. I followed the recipe, and it was a different dinner for my family, which I am always looking for in order to have variety. I did use dehydrated onions because I had some and needed to use them. Thanks so much!
