Brings me right back to to NY. This is really great spooned over cooked hot dogs, but try it with other foods too, and watch how fast they disappear. This recipe is from Mr. Food.

Yum! I talked to my sister and she told me she used to love this sauce over hot dogs. I really enjoyed it and actually used it in a vegetarian casserole. Thanks for posting!

This was my grandmother's favorite Mr. Food recipe, so I've been enjoying these since I was little. Last summer I made them (and TRIPLED the recipe because boy, we are onion lovers!) and put them in a small crockpot on the warm setting so they stayed hot throughout the meal. They are also excellent on burgers or cube steaks.

This was a terrific sauce...
