This recipe has been in my family as long as I can remember. Im not really sure where it came from exactly but we think that my grandmother seeing the way her kids liked hot dogs and onions on the streets of NY came up with her own version at home. My Uncle was famous for making this dish and his neighbors always requested it. It always reminds me of him when I make this dish... Miss him!

How to Make Uncle Matty's Hot Dogs with Onions

Step-by-Step

  1. Cut up onions. I cut them in 1/2 and then slice into 1/2 rounds. I put about 2 turns of a pans worth of extra virgin olive oil and saute the onions until they start to get golden.
  2. While the onions are cooking I mince the garlic. Take the hot dogs and cut them into coins. Not too thin.
  3. When the onions start to get golden I add the red pepper flakes, parsley and garlic to the pan. When you start to smell the garlic I add the tomato sauce and water (tho sometimes I forget and just add the hot dogs before the sauce but its better to let the sauce cook a bit first before you add the hot dogs.)
  4. When the sauce thickens add the hot dogs and let it cook for about 20 - 30 minutes so the hot dogs cook thru.
  5. We make sandwiches on Italian bread but you could easily serve this over rice or a short cut pasta.
