Hot Diggitty Dogs!


Not sure what to bring to that summer picnic? This recipe is tasty, easy and a sure-fire “hit.”

  • 1/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1 TBSP oil
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped celeryhot dogs
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 3 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 TBSP brown sugar
  • 2 TBSP vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pepper and dried red pepper to taste

Heat oven to 350*

In medium wrought iron (or oven safe) pan with sides, sauté onion and celery in oil until translucent.

Add all other ingredients except for franks.

Bring mixture to a boil, then simmer on low for about 30 minutes.

Slice each frank diagonally about 1/3 way through in a few places.

Snuggle franks into sauce and bake in oven for about 30 mins.

Serve right in pan with spoon for ladling extra sauce on top.. OR place franks on a bed of sautéed onions and peppers! YUM! 

 (Don’t forget the buns!)

This recipe is from my beloved, but falling apart, 1999 Better Homes and gardens, “America’s Best Loved Community Recipes” cook book. 🌻
