  1. Grind hot dogs into a chunky paste in a food processor and place into a large saucepan. Mix cornstarch with 1 cup water in a small bowl and set aside. Pour 7 more cups water over the hot dogs. Stir in vinegar, paprika, chili powder, sea salt, red pepper flakes, oregano, onion powder, cinnamon, white pepper, and black pepper and bring to a boil.
  2. Simmer over low heat until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Gradually stir in reserved cornstarch mixture and simmer for 15 more minutes. Adjust salt and black pepper. Sauce will be thinner than chili and will thicken as it cools.

  • Cook's Note:
  • Just remember the buns need to be steamed. I do mine in the microwave for 30 seconds. Without the steamed buns it's not the same, and it's better to boil the hot dogs and not grill them.

the best hot dog sauce ever


Very good and even better if it sits for day in the refrigerator. If you don't like it spicy, scale back on the red pepper a bit. We thought it was going to be too hot, but found the spiciness just right, once on a hot dog with a roll.


I tried this recipe, and it missed the mark. Number 1: Needs more onion, and onion needs to be sauteed into a paste. I started with 1 whole large onion, diced into bits, sauteed with 1 cup water for 30 minutes. Chopped only 4 hot dogs, and added to mix. Cut water down to 3 cups total. Number 2; I also mixed 1 tablespoon yellow mustered into mix. Cut cinnamon down to a pinch. Less liquid, so I also reduced cornstarch to perhaps 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons, dissolved in an additional 1/2 cup cold water, and added just enough to thicken sauce. Thickened sauce should be tkick enough to cling to dog, yet thin enough to flow around dog into the bun, but not drip excessively. Remainder the same.
