Funny how things can take you back to your childhood. This was one of my favorite lunches in school. Everyone loved them. You may have even had them at your school. My friends mom worked in the cafeteria and shared many of their recipes. Now I make them for my kids and they love them too. They are even better the next day, once they mingle in the sauce over night. These are great for parties and kept warm in a crock pot. Enjoy!

How To Make ~ school cafeteria frankfurters ~

  • 1
    Saute onions, until translucent and browning a little. Add all remaining ingredients, combine well and simmer for a few minutes.
  • 2
    Fry or boil your hotdogs. I like mine fried.
  • 3
    Pour sauce over dogs and simmer for 10 minutes. Moving hot dogs around to thoroughly coat with sauce.
  • 4
    Place hot dogs in warmed buns and drizzle a little extra sauce over the hot dog...can add raw diced onion in prefer. That's how I like mine. The longer these soak in the sauce the better...make them ahead and heat back up, that's when they're best.
