Sweet and Sour Hot Dogs---Simple

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Mimi in Maine

A lady used to bring this to a church covered dish supper. Every time it was gone by the first time people went through. All the kids loved it, especially my granddaughter. So, I got the recipe from her and was amazed how easy it was. Only three ingredients. You could use this for tiny meatballs too along with the hot dogs.

Hi Mimi, I was reading one of your cookbooks and I saw this recipe. My sister and I would make these for parties and for my niece, who was a very picky eater but she loved these. Then, when I had kids I used to make them for them. Rodger, preferred the little hot dogs alone with mustard but Aimee loved them made this way. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe! The sauce is also great with tiny meatballs. Hugz, Diane :)
