    Made again - still wonderful, and my go to hot dog recipe, still using this for the onions (, and still using Alsace knacks. The only thing is that I grill the hot dog on the same pan after I transfer the onions to a oven dish and then nestle them in the onions, rather than the other way round, and I pierce the sausages in a few places to allow the beer/oniony sauce to get in the sausage. I also use Dijon mustard, I rarely keep American one as a staple (although I do like it also!)

    Made again for all the family, using Alsace knacks again (we were in Alsace!). Everyone loved it ! Especially the onions which I made from scratch with fresh onions, coooked them with olive oil and slightly candied them before adding the beer and reducing all the juices with the sausages. I used Leffe this time for the beer

    Yummy! I will not make hot dogs another way now :) I made a bit of a "Franglish" variation, using baguette, Alsace knacks, Roscoff onions, and British craft beer (using this recipe for hot dog onions : I LOVED it :) The beer tip, makes all the difference - the sausages are all juicy and flavourful, but still have that chargrilled smokiness. Perfection.
