    Been making this for over 40 years. Hard to mess up the recipe! Can't eat hot dogs without this or kraut. I usually add a little bit of oregano and a little bit of sugar. 1 onion is usually good for 4 hot dogs at least. You can really speed it up by using the microwave.

    close to sabbrettes red onion sauce. you don't need 3 onions unless your having a hotdog party 1 onion is plenty also if you can find natural casing hotdogs then your in for a treat I've seen some recipes adding green peppers to onion sauce. in New York there are no peppers in the sauce

    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!
