Rhoda Williams


  • 1 cutting board
  • 1 knife for chopping onion
  • 1 can opener
  • 1 large saucepan
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 garlic press


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon margarine
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef, raw
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 6-oz. can tomato paste
  • 1 6-oz. can water
  • 4 or 5 hot dogs


  • Combine everything but the hot dogs and simmer over low heat until thick.
  • Grind the hot dogs and add to the sauce. (If you don't have a meat grinder, you can grind the hot dogs in a food processor. Slice each hot dog vertically down the middle and then slice each half into three pieces. Place them on a tray and put them in a freezer for about one hour. You want them to be very firm but not completely frozen. Add a tablespoon or two of water to your processor with the firm hot dog pieces and process them.)
  • Cook for an additional 15 minutes. (I added the ground hot dogs in step one with the rest of the ingredients, which worked fine. The extra cooking time wasn't necessary.)

All-American Hot Dogs Including Coney Sauce

Unquestionably, we sure do love our hot dogs! All in all, we recommend you try all of these regional American favorites!

  1. Michigan Dog – All things considered, we definitely recommend a Michigan Coney dog! You should top it with beefy chili, shredded cheddar cheese and raw onion.
  2. New York Dog – In brief, New Yorkers top this dog with spicy brown mustard and sauerkraut … or onions sautéed with tomato paste – your choice!
  3. New Jersey Dog – On the other hand, the Newark crowd will rest this all-beef dog on an Italian roll and top it with peppers, onions and fried potatoes.
  4. Chicago Dog – Moreover, Chicagoans top this hot dog with fresh tomato, pickle spears, hot peppers and a sweet onion relish.
  5. Kansas City Dog – This city is home to a reuben dog topped with melted cheese, caraway seeds, sauerkraut and Thousand Island dressing.
  6. Atlanta Dog – By and large, this dog is a slaw dog, topped with cool, creamy, crunchy slaw.

Popular Hot Dogs Out West

  1. Sonoran Dog – What’s more, you’ll find this popular hot dog in Tucson and Phoenix. It starts with a dog wrapped in smoky bacon nestled in a bolillo roll. In short, folks in the Southwest top it with pinto beans, onion, mustard, mayo, chopped tomatoes and jalapenos.
  2. San Francisco Dog – For starters, you should wrap this dog in or top it with bacon. Then top it with creamy mayo and other cool toppings. In fact, you may find your favorite version is the BLT, topped with creamy mayo and chopped fresh lettuce and tomato.
  3. Seattle Dog – In conclusion, this city starts their hot dog with a toasted bun generously spread with cream cheese. Then they top the dog with grilled onions, jalapenos, and grilled cabbage.
