The onion sauce is super special! This would go well on any burger or as a side dish. I used jumbo Euro weiners - they were perfect. Another recipe that will be made over & over again

Thks onion sauce is so yummy atop a hot dog. I even used it on my hamburgers. So delicious that I couldn't stop at one and had to have another!
