Recipe by Lillian
"This is an appetizer reminiscent of New York City's street vendor hot dogs. A crisp, classic RITZ Cracker with a slice of cooked hot dog topped with push-cart style hot dog onions and finished off with a drizzle of yellow mustard--a perfect one-bite snack."

I just loved everything about this bite! The onion topping was excellent and my girls ate these up. Hubby actually enjoyed them too as he's usually not one for eating onions but he really put some down. There is nothing I didn't like about this...my family said it rocked. And I think one kid added Dill Relish on top of hers too. Thanks Lil...it's a keeper.
I am giving this a 5, because I absolutely loved the onions on this. I even realized I was out of hot sauce after starting the onions, and subbed 2 Tblsp of chili sauce and 2 small pinches of cayenne for half the recipe. I followed the rest of the ingredients as is. I used cooked and sliced Trader Joes all-beef hot dogs and yellow mustard as suggested. I am looking forward to making hot dogs over the next summer holiday with these onions. Having it all on a cracker was fine, but the cracker just seemed somewhat dry and on the butter side to me with this combination. Maybe, if they sat a little longer the cracker would start to soak up some of the yummy cooked onions. I plan to make more of these as an quick appetizer for Super Bowl. They do present well because of the onions. ty
These little treats are the essence of NYC. For authenticity, the hot dogs must be cooked in hot water. I went a step further when serving and made one plate as per the recipe and another small plate topped with sauerkraut in place of the onions. These almost made the football bearable. Thanks, Lillian
Yummy! Loved the onions and the heat was right up my alley. I even added some sliced jalapeno piece on top to give the bite a little color. I could eat a lot of these. I skipped the tomato paste just because Grumpy doesn't like it. For this reason my topping was just a little liquidy, but that was fine, I just strained the oinons out with a fork to top the cracker so they didn't get soggy.
We used the push-cart onions the traditional way, topping a hot dog. What a nice change from same-ole mustard and sweet pickle relish. I added a little more Louisiana hot sauce which gave this just the perfect zing for us. Thanks, Lillian, for developing this recipe, it's a winner.
What a unique little treat these were and so easy to prepare. My onions didn't sauce up as much as some I see in the pictures but they were perfect for us just the way they turned out. This one is a keeper. Thanks Lillian!
Yum, yum! These were very simple to make and really packed a flavor punch! The onions were fabulous! I felt like I was eating a chili dog, but, without the actual chili! Very tasty and fun to make!
Pretty fantastic little appetizer! Loved the spicy kick.
