J-Dawg’s Gourmet Hot Dog Sauce
This recipe was adapted from food blogger thefoodcharlatan. You all know how to make a hot dog so I will leave that part out. Admittedly, I didn’t know who Jdawg was so I had to look it up. It’s a joint in UT that supposedly serves up some serious polish dogs with a a sauce that people rave about.
Thought I would give it a try and pair it with cheddar as an homage to one of my favorite burgers, Houston’s Hickory Burger. The sauce has a BBQ taste to it but when you look at the ingredients you will see it is more sweet. I added some tabasco to bump up the heat.
Lastly these pictures are dreadful. I was making a quick lunch and wasn’t thinking about the blog as much as I was thinking of making lunch. Given that I deplore cleaning my food processor for shredded cheese and given that I was making only two dogs, I sliced up the cheese into larger strips. The dog isn’t pretty but was pretty delicious.
You absolutely could use this on anything BBQ related.. chicken, ribs, brisket, burgers, sandwiches etc… I could see kids really liking this sauce due to the lack of heat if you omit Tabasco.
