Hot Dog Gravy

This isn't really a gravy but you use it like a gravy or a meat type sauce. I served it over brown rice but I think the next time I make this I'll serve it over toasted white bread. I don't see why you can't serve this over macaroni or egg noodles too or even in hot dog buns or hoagies.

This is an adaptation of a retro recipe. The family loved it, I hope you do too.

You'll need:
vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 packages hot dogs (I used the big dinner sized Hebrew National dog), sliced into rounds.
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup vinegar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons yellow mustard

Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion.
When the onion starts to get soft add the hot dog rounds and cook until the onion is done and the hot dog it cooked. I like my hot dogs well done.
Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer for about 30 minutes to 1 hour or until the sauce thickens.
Serve over toasted bread, hot cooked rice, noodles or whatever else you can think of.

A tasty, easy, cheap meal. Just add a salad or a veg (ketchup doesn't count) and you're good to go.
