Recipe by Lillian
"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 extra large
onion, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons
hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's RedHot®)
prepared yellow mustard
ground black pepper
ground cayenne pepper
I used EVOO instead of corn oil and I cut back just a touch on the salt. The recipe didn't state what kind of onion to use, I made a judgement call and used an extra large sweet onion. That was the only change I made in this recipe. We had these piled on top of barbequed kielbasa. NO leftovers. This was absolutely fantastic.
Holy spiciness! I admit that I'm a spice whimp but O....M....G were these HOT! I could not get past 1 bite & my eyes were watering, lips were burning. Yes, I followed the recipe, no I didn't make any mistake in measurements. I really want to try more but I'm skeered :) Really hard to rate on just 1 bite so I'll go in the middle.
So good! Next time I'll rough-chop the onion as I thought the slices where a bit challenging to eat altho they look great on the hot dog. I cut back on the salt, plus the hot sauce and cayenne as we are wimpy with hot foods altho we like spicy flavors.
FANTASTIC! If I could give this 10 stars, I would! The flavors of these onions are awesome...spicy, tangy and sweet. A perfect compliment to a hot dog. Hubby said he's gonna ask for these every time I make hot dogs, lol. Made exactly as written. Definate keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
Though it's not a recipie I personally would try (a bit spicy for me) My husband LOVED these! He made an egg sandwich and put the hotdog onions ontop and said they are better than the family recipie for peppers! lol!
I put this on brats. Love onions, love these X 10. I'm thinking on hamburgers or maybe in hamburgers, both? My hot sauce was HOT so this had a nice burn. Thanks!
My husband and I loved these onions! A great spicy topping for a hot dog!
Loooved these onions! Spicy and tangy, but not overwhelming. My 4 year old was begging for hot dogs tonight, and since I kept seeing these being raved about on the Buzz, I felt like I HAD to try them. Yum!! A nice way to make an ordinary hot dog a little more fun and interesting. Thanks for the recipe, Lillian!
