Coneys are an awesome way to take hot dogs to a whole new level!  I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and I look forward to hearing all about your experiences with it!  Enjoy!

When I was a kid, my Mom and step-dad took me to this place in Tulsa, OK called Coney Island.  It wasn’t an island, just a fast food joint, but it seemed magical.  A place where they MADE chili dogs right in front of you!  It was on special occasions that we went, like when I begged enough.  LOL.

I’m sure you probably realize there is an actual place more known than this silly little place in Tulsa, I had no idea until years later!  haha.  Ahh, to be a child again!

Anyway, this is the closest I’ve come to re-living it at home.  Just remember, the hot sauce you use makes a huge difference in the flavor.  We tried it with green hot sauce and I wasn’t a fan.  Chief Zoo Keeper liked it, I didn’t.  Let me know if you find a fabulous variation!

Coney Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c finely chopped (or even minced) white onion
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 2 tbsp yellow mustard
  • 2 tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 tsp worcestishire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 c ketchup
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp chili powder

Directions

  1. Saute onion and garlic.
  2. Add ground beef, brown, drain.  (You can also use ground turkey!)
  3. Combine other ingredients in a bowl, mix well, then add to ground beef mixture.
  4. Stir, heat, simmer, for 1 hour.  If it begins to dry out, add water and scrape the bottom of the pan.  Continue simmering for the entire hour.  Gets the flavor in so well!
  5. Enjoy with your favorite franks and sides!

Now, what’s for dessert….?
