Mustard Dog with Sweet Ketchup Sauce


  • 8 All Beef Hotdogs or Polish Dogs
  • 8 Hotdog Buns
  • Butter (to toast hotdog buns)
  • 1 White Onion (diced)
  • 1/2 Cup of Yellow or Spicy Brown Mustard

Sweet Ketchup Sauce Ingredients

  • 3/4 Cup of Ketchup
  • 3/4 Cup of Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons of BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 Cup of Honey
  • 2 Teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Onion Powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon of Black pepper


  1. To make the sauce, add ketchup, brown sugar, BBQ sauce, honey, cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, and black pepper together in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 1 minute increments until the sugar is dissolved. Let it cool and pour into a plastic squeeze bottle.

  2. Set your griddle to medium heat and cover with a light layer of oil.

  3. Use a sharp knife to make crisscross cuts in the hot dogs about a quarter of the way through. Do this on two sides of the hotdogs. This increases the surface area of the hotdogs and will ensure they are more covered in the mustard.

  4. Cook the hotdogs for about 3 minutes a side. While they are still on the griddle, squeeze about a tablespoons of mustard onto each hotdog. Let them cook on the griddle for another minute or two.
