Coney dogs (aka Coney Island hot dogs or Coneys) are all beef hot dogs topped with all-beef chili, diced yellow onion and yellow mustard. Originating in Detroit, Michigan, and popular in the “heartland” states, these sandwiches scream summer is here!
Yields: 2 cups of Coney sauce
1 pound ground beef
4 tablespoons minced yellow onion
3 cups Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary Maker
1/2 cup dill pickle relish
3 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons Coleman’s dry mustard
3 tablespoons Hickoryworks Bestchestershire Sauce
Place a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and add the beef and onions.
Cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until the beef is no longer pink. Use a wooden spoon or potato masher to break the meat up into small pieces.
Add the rest of the ingredients, stir to blend, and simmer on low heat for 1 hour or until the mixture is thick. Use immediately to top hot dogs, or freeze for future use.
Note: You can freeze this sauce in ice cube trays to make “Coney Cubes.” When the urge for a Coney strikes, take a few cubes, thaw them out to top your hot dog, and enjoy!
