"When I was small we would always stop and get hot dogs smothered in a flavorful meat sauce on the way to Gram's. Dad worked and experimented, and finally came up with a sauce that tasted just as good. Be sure to spread the hot dog rolls with mustard and top them off with chopped onion." — CAYUGARN

I liked the sauce! The texas hot diner in Wellsville, NY has a great sauce also. They have been selling hot dogs with their special sauce for eighty years..people drive 40 miles to get a bag of them to go. Thanks again
I'm originally from Buffalo NY and Texas hot dogs are a big favorite. You can get the Greek recipe that is used in Western NY form a site called Greekhotdog sauce. Its as good as it gets for the authentic sauce.
this is a great recipe thanks
"TEXAS" hot dog sauce should not be confused with the original "GREEK" recipe, which contained no tomato products, sauce, puree, or whatever....and where in the heck did cinnamon come in ????
This may be a good substitute for the real thing....however....I will "El Paso" on this one.
Oh Diane, we must have stopped at the same place to get our texas hot dogs. This is a great recipe that is very close to that. Excellent!! Good going Diane's dad, thanks for the great recipe. Everyone loved it. It's going in the recipe box. Thanks for sharing.
This was really good. I used a whole can of tomato soup and less water so the sauce was thicker. I'll make it again. It would be a great recipe for camping.
I have made a sauce similar to this one but without the frankfurters. I had never heard of that but it's a good idea. I just don't eat frankfurters. I only eat sauce on buns. I'm from West Virginia and I also put a hint of cinnamon in my sauce as well as vinegar. Some people are afraid of something different. But this is a thumbs up for me. Thanks for sharing.
Excellent recipe! Serving tip: fry the hotdogs. Butter the inside of the hotdog buns and fry them, also. Not the most heart healthy way to eat them, but boy are they yummy! Don't forget the onion...I hate raw onion, but even I couldn't believe how much flavor they add to the sauce!
My husband also added a little melted cheese to his...yummy!
