These are hotdogs in a spicy red sauce. This is my mom's creation and we love them! Recently my hubby and I had a craving for them but didn't have any hotdogs so we cut up a ring bologna in chunks and covered it in the sauce and baked it - YUM!! There is a lot of room to play with the ingredients: mustard could be the yellow stuff or dijon; relish could be sweet or dill; diced onion could be fresh or dehydrated; vinegar could be white, red wine, cider, etc. ENJOY and make this your own!

These were so flavorful! I simmered the sauce in a pan on the stove while I grilled the hot dogs. I melted some american cheese on top, added some diced pickled jalapenos in the sauce, and topped it with fresh diced tomatoes. Since I didn't cook the sauce as long as the recipe suggests, I cut back on the vinegar. It was still super tangy, sweet, and spicy. Delish!

Haute Dog! Elevates the plain dog to a higher level. Pass it on. Made for A-NZ#60.

Really enjoyed these dogs. Followed recipe to the T. Also cooked some beer brats and tried the sauce on them. Wow. Thanks to you and your mom for the keeper.
