Hot Dogs, Buns, Sauerkraut, Onions, Mustard, Butter, & Salt

Step 1

Thinly slice each medium onion and place them into a hot, oiled, large skillet.

Step 2

Sauté the onions over medium-high heat for 10 minutes, stirring constantly.

Step 3

Reduce the heat to low, add the teaspoon of salt, and cook for 35-40 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. The onions will reduce and turn a deep golden brown color.

Step 4

While the onions are caramelizing, cook your hot dogs. I prefer to sauté hot dogs in a frying pan on the stovetop. You can also grill your hot dogs or boil them in water.

Step 5

When your onions have finished caramelizing, you can start layering your ingredients onto the hotdogs! Start with a scoop of onions.

Step 6

Add a scoop of sauerkraut on top of the onions.

Step 7

Top the sauerkraut with a layer of mustard.
