Every state has it's own food specialties. Hawaii has pineapple, R.I. has "hot weiners!" What are they? It's a small hot dog, placed on a steammed bun, topped with mustard, chopped onion, celery salt and meat sauce! I crave these! Recipes for this sauce are varied. This is another recipe for it. You decide which one you like better.

Ingredients Nutrition

  2. Add tomato sauce, chili powder, and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Add cinnamon to taste.
  4. Serve on top of hotdogs with all the traditional fixings!
  5. Keeps 3-5 days in refrigerator.

I made this recipe on May 4th. for the " Down On The Farm " Event in the Food Photo Forum and most importantly mine and my SO's Dinner. :) I followed the recipe almost exactly as it was written, and as for the amount of cinnamon about 1/4 tsp. was used. I didn't have any celery salt, but did have celery powder and used a couple of shakes of that along with a sprinkling of regular table salt. And as it was described in the description, I used onion and mustard. Thank you posting such a very good recipe that will be made again. " Keep Smiling :) "

This was a good sauce for the top of hot dogs. I was really expecting it to be spicy, but it wasn't. I liked the touch of cinnamon in the recipe. If I made this again, I would add a dash of hot sauce or maybe cayenne pepper. Thanks Chef! Edited to Add: I missed this part of the recipe "topped with mustard, chopped onion, celery salt and meat sauce!" because it was written in the description so I will be trying these again.
