These are no ordinary hot dogs to yawn over. If you've ever wondered how to make a gourmet hot dog at home, this is it. The relish is so simple to make and tastes amazing. Better than anything you'd find at the store. It's spicy, sweet, and zesty. It's perfect served hot over the pan grilled hot dogs and cheese. An awesome way to dress up hot dogs.
