I grew up in WV and learned to love the hot dogs made this way. I have lived in other states and convinced some restaurants to adopt this recipe as well. Most had never heard of making hot dogs this way. Sorry everybody. I left out a part of the recipe instructions - how to use package of McCormick Super Slaw Mix. You can find it in the produce section of your grocery store. It has directions for using on the back. I have edited my original recipe. Again, I'm VERY sorry. If you made the recipe as it was, it was probably OK, but this Slaw Mix will make it even better.
