….Shall we eat hot dogs today? Anyone can easily make hot dogs with a delicious sauce! There are many varieties of sauces, but I liked the ratio of this sauce the best. Hot dogs are enjoyed at many other times and in many other places all over the country. Do you ever have hot dogs at school for lunch? What about at home for dinner? My husband sometimes takes them for lunch. An age-old favorite for many kids is hot dogs and macaroni and cheese! My grandson’s absolute favorite food is still macaroni and cheese… When will my hot dogs become his favorite food??? I chose mild Italian sausage, but you can choose according to your own taste. If you don’t like vegetables, it’s still a thumbs-up even if you eat it with just the sauce. Also, I shared a bottle of hot dog sauce with my daughter, Anne. Instead of lettuce, she sautéed kimchi and onions to put on top. As expected, my daughter created something new and delicious in her own style. This recipe is from @booth108kwon.
