Coney Island Sauce

Recipe by Wonderbaby254
READY IN: 45mins
SERVES: 10-12


  • 2
    tablespoons butter
  • 12
    cup onion, chopped (I like to save the other half for garnishing)
  • 1
    lb hamburger, low fat versions will make the sauce less greasy
  • 1
    teaspoon salt (table or sea salt)
  • 2
    teaspoons paprika
  • 2
    teaspoons chili powder
  • 1
    cup ketchup
  • 10 -12
    hot dogs
  • 10 -12
    buns (white is best for this, but wheat lovers will enjoy this just the same)


  • Cook the onions in butter until soft and translucent.
  • Stir in hamburger, salt, paprika and chili powder. Cook this over medium beat until browned.
  • Blend in ketchup and simmer for 20-30 minutes and get all of those flavors happy.
  • Add water by the tablespoons if necessary to thin the mixture.
  • Garnish with left over onion, shredded cheese - I recommend a cheddar blend, and any other hot dog fixings you prefer. Or simply enjoy this coney sauce all by itself. After this, you'll have a hard time returning to chili dogs.
