- If its getting too thick, add a touch more water.
- Remove bay leaves.
- Serve on those next bbq hot dogs, with another slather of mustard on top.
- Yesterday I did make another batch with the cloves added , and I really enjoyed it, so give the cloves a chance if you are not a clove user, it brings out all the flavours of the onions and sweetness and tartness.
Followed exactly and was wayyy to bland for me. But i grew up in SD and haven't had this before. Sounded super but just not my cup of tea.
This was way too bland for my taste. I did use safflower oil instead of canola oil, due to what was on hand. Otherwise, I followed the recipe to a T with the exception of using a 15 oz. can tomato sauce. (I tasted before adding the extra tomato sauce, and felt the recipe would tolerate the extra sauce, which it did.) I served the hot dogs plus sauce on mashed potatoes, topped them with brown grainy mustard, ketchup, and horseradish sauce. Without the toppings, it was a total blah. With them, it was OK. There won't be a next time for this one, but it could be kicked up a notch with some horseradish and ketchup. I might try to modify this for my more spicy taste buds in the future, but probably not. I'll just look for something else with more kick.
I'm a NYer, and I was missing street faire, so I tried this recipe out....YUM! You hit it on the nail, and Chef #219216 thanks for the helpful comments. PS. I used olive oil instead of canola & didn't have dry mustard, but it still came out awesome...I also added a little Goya sazon for a added kick of flavor.
