Hot Dog Onions

Sharing a recipe 😊 This is what we’re making today. Grilling hotdogs and serving them New York hot dog cart style; which means with a spicy sauteed onion topping 😋🌭🌶️🗽🏜🇺🇸🔥🐕😉AND sweet & spicy sausage

It turned out good & is now my granddaughter’s latest favorite😊😉💕💞✌

“I love the push cart hot dogs, mainly because of the onions they serve on top…so I mixed and matched many different ingredients until I came up with the perfect combination for this recipe! This tastes just like the kind of onions I often would get from my favorite hot dog stands!”


  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 1 extra large onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons hot pepper sauce (such as Frank’s RedHot(R))
  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste


  • Heat the corn oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the hot sauce, yellow mustard, sugar, chili powder, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, and continue to cook for about 5 minutes. Stir in the water and tomato paste; simmer until liquid has reduced, about 20 minutes.
