    mfl666's Note:

    Isn't it interesting that Michigans are not known by that name in Mighican? I believe they are only known as Michigans in northern New York (my hometown).

      Very good Michigan sauce. I'm from Burlington, Vermont and it is called "Michigan" sauce there too. If you are ever in Burlington, go to Battery Park and get a Michigan Hot Dog from "Beansies Bus", it is a city landmark and have been their many generations.

      Not just in NY! We learned of this "Michigan" recipe while in Washington State from a Montana guy! These are great to top dogs!

      I first had this sauce years ago with my sister-in-law in Plattsburgh, New York..How I begged for the recipe!! I lost it over the years and was thrilled to find it here. Thanks MFL666 this is an awesome sauce. I freeze in ziploc bags with enough for a package of hot dogs as it get hotter each time you re-heat.
