    Chopped onions on a hot dog are good but this onion sauce a traditional topping for a New York hot dog is better.

      Growing up in Southern Ohio, we always eat our hot dogs with meat sauce. I had never heard of anything like this, but it sounded good, so I thought I'd try it. I'm glad I did! It was a nice change from the usual and lower calorie, too! Thanks!

      Great recipe, Rita. I like this better than Sabrette's onions. I made a few minor adjustments. When sauteeing the onions I also added some tri-color mini sweet peppers. My garlic was hickory smoked in my stove top smoker, and I added a few extra cloves (we are garlic-holics). I also added about a tablespoon of Steen's cane syrup to offset the vinegar. Salt was not needed at all. The result was a sweet/sour oniony smoky relish that I put on bacon-wrapped dawgs that were cooked in the rotisserie. Delicious!
