The idea of Deviled Hot Dogs had me flummoxed. What quality do the hot dogs pictured share with deviled eggs?
It was time for me to look up what "deviled" means.
"To prepare with hot or savory seasoning," according to Dictionary.com. Hmmm. By that definition, burritos, spaghetti sauce and pizza are all deviled.
Clearly, there's a nuance I'm missing.
Deviled Hot Dogs
With Frenchwise Barbecue Sauce
Vintage recipe from 1952 French's advertising
Slash tops of frankfurters, brown in skillet or on the grill. Baste and serve with Frenchwise Sauce:
1 medium onion, minced (or 1 tbsp. French's Onion Flakes)
1 small green pepper minced (or 1 tbsp. French's Pepper Flakes)
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. French's Prepared Mustard
1 tbsp. French's Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp. salt.
Combine ingredients, simmer 15 minutes.
I strongly suggest you enjoy your deviled hot dogs with beer. ; )
