Homemade Hot Dog Onions Recipe Made on the Grill

A quick and easy homemade Hot Dog Onions recipe that's perfect for your July 4th BBQs! I love a good hot dog, (who doesn't?!) and I especially love to top mine with delicious New York style hot dog onions. This hot dog topping is extremely easy to make and actually combines a few other common condiments like ketchup, mustard and relish! This hot dog onion recipe is similar to the Sabrettes Onions sold in stores, but even better, cause it's made at home! Give these onions a try at your next bbq, you won't be disappointed!
