I mean…the hot dog. An American icon, right? And during the summer, they are a go-to dinner option for my little family. But I just can’t eat the same dog every night…I need a little switch up sometimes!
The other night, I made up a quick Maple and Mustard sauce to drizzle down over our turkey dogs…and it was delicious! Of course, you could drizzle the same thing over a Brat or beef hot dog. A simple switch for a simple supper…
4 to 6 hot dogs (turkey, beef, chicken…whatever you like!)
1 onion, chopped
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
Salt and Pepper
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons maple syrup (good quality!)
hot dog buns
In a skillet over medium-high heat, saute your onions in a drizzle of EVOO and a pinch of S&P. Reduce heat to low and let them caramelize about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine your Dijon and syrup with a pinch of S&P. Reserve.
Grill your hot dogs over medium-high heat until warmed through (about 5-8 minutes).
Serve each dog in a bun topped with your caramelized onions and a drizzle of your maple mustard sauce.
Easy and simple. And very flavorful!
