Coney Island Hot Dogs

Fall is on my calendar this month but it's not in the air yet. But, I'm trying to ignore the 90 degree temps and celebrate the fact that sweet September has finally arrived. Football season is here and watching games on Saturday evenings means food on the grill. One of my favorite grill meals is hot dogs. They're simple, cheap, and delicious, and one of the few foods that the whole family can enjoy.

Over the weekend, we grilled hot dogs and I cooked some Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce. The flavors are similar to chili but it's not as saucy. It is delicious.

Coney Island Hot Dog Sauce
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cracked black pepper
1/2 tsp. seasoning salt
1 cup water

Brown the beef.  Drain and return to pan.
Mix all dry ingredients together.

Add the dry ingredients to the browned beef. Add 1/2 cup of water and simmer on low for several minutes. Gradually add the remaining water and stir until blended. Simmer on medium low for about 15 minutes.

Hot dog a la Eric - China a la Hefty

 Getting fancy with the mustard...

Can you even eat hot dogs without onions?

 Oh, yes! She was delicious. Now, here's the final step. After consuming your Coney dog, remove your shirt and go directly to the washing machine and apply a pre-treater. These dogs are messy!!
