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!

I made the recipe with one onion. So it took less time to cook. It's so yummy. I tried in hot dogs and it was great. Thanks Rita :) Made for All you can cook buffet

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!

This was a great relish which we enjoyed so much. I do recommend that you put in only two tablespoons of vinegar as I did as that worked out great unless you prefer a more acidic taste.

Let me tell you what I did with this recipe. I made it exactly like the recipe, but quadrupled it for a potluck. Then I sliced up hotdogs lenthwise, and boiled them until they curled up-added them to the onion mixture in my crockpot, and served them as octopus legs and seaweed (the ketchup made it look like it was a bloody mess) on a bun for a halloween potluck. They looked really, really gross, but they were really, really good....I can't say anybody asked me for the recipe, but they were certainly an attention getter and I didn't take any leftovers home...lol...

Great! Full of flavor and spicy. Apart from omitting the salt (it did not need any) I made it exactly as stated. Have no idea if this is supposed to be eaten warm or cold (like a relish) but both ways are good. Will certainly make again. Thanks for posting.

Wonderful topping for a hot dog! I really wasn't sure what the reaction would be from my non-ketchup eating DH, but after the first hot dog he doubled up on the onions for the second one. I think the vinegar and paprika cut the ketchup flavour. I didn't simmer the onions as long...they were drier than your photo appears. Who cares? It tastes great!
