Red Hot Devils

"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.

    These were FANTASTIC!! Such a change from the "chili dog"- but still wonderful. I don't know that I will have chili on my hot dog ever again. I LOVED the nice sweet-n-tangy flavor. Thanks so much- made for the French Forum Spice of the Month- Paprika/2010.

    Loved these dogs! So I wouldn't eat two, I had to eat a boat load of salad first and jam-pack myself full with lettuce, so I wouldn't go for another. These are highly addictive, and I am in love! I changed the serving size down to "2" and reduced the sugar to accommodate that change. I did however add more hot sauce, (like a FULL teaspoon - as I LOVE hot sauce) and I am glad I did. These were little devils, and I adored them! I will be making this lots! I threw a couple purple onions on top, and I especially loved the method of baking the dogs/sauce together. Who knew? Will be making this again and often! Made for *Paprika Month* French Forum March 2010.
