Flint is known for all their coney island places, and they have the best sauce in the country. Kogel Viennas are the ONLY hotdog!

Mom saved this from the Flint Journal in 1978 and we have made it ever since.

It makes a big batch, so I freeze what is left in meal size portions for 2-3 people. Sometimes I even make a double batch.
