Tailgate Season has arrived my friends!  Here in Philly, tailgating is a must for any Eagles game.  Now – we won’t rag on my Eagles, but I think sometimes the best thing about the games is the action that goes on outside of the Linc.  Tailgating doesn’t have to be fancy – some of the best tailgates are the casual ones, in my opinion. A must for my tailgate – my go-to hot dogs – Hebrew National, Hunts Natural Ketchup and, of course, Gulden’s Spicy Brown Mustard.

One recipe that will take your tailgate to new heights is this Hot Dog Onion Sauce.  You know those spicy sweet onions you get with your hot dogs in the city?  This is my version of a Bobby Flay classic that took my fave Hebrew National Hot Dogs from ordinary to extraordinary.  Even better – this sauce was so easy to make that if there is any leftover sauce, you’ll find yourself slathering it on not only hot dogs, but hamburgers, sandwiches, you name it.  It’s that good.

So – when you want to make your tailgate a winner – make this Hot Dog Onion Sauce.  Your friends and family will be screaming TOUCHDOWN!

With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut (and what doesn’t). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts.
