Hot Dog Sauces!

Everyone knows the summertime grilling season here in the Northern Hemisphere. We Americans will soon celebrate Independence Day on July 4, and most of us will grill out, picnic, and other forms of mayhem. My family will include a family reunion in the mayhem.

I'll probably bring the hot dog sauces. Here are my favorites below. Be aware some must be made well in advance. Who says hot dogs are boring? Not my family!

Tart Apple Mustard
1/2 cup honey mustard
2 T shredded green apple (I used Granny Smith)
1/2 t. ground black pepper

In a small bowl stir together all ingredients. Cover bowl and allow flavors to marry for at least 2 hours. Makes about 2/3 cup.

Bacon Brown Sugar Mustard (Family favorite!)
3/4 cup yellow mustard
3 slices crisp cooked bacon, cooled and broken up
4 t. brown sugar or 2 t. Splenda Brown

Blend them all together, cover and refrigerate overnight to blend the flavors.

Hot Ketchup

2/3 cup ketchup
2 T. Worcestershire
1 t hot sauce (Tabasco) or as much as you like according to taste.

Other Condiments may include: chopped pickled peppers, sliced tomatoes, pickle relish, shredded cheddar cheese, and crumbled cooked bacon
