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!

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.

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. :)
