Hotdogs are a quick and easy dinner my family enjoys often during the summer months. We love to fire up the grill and toss on a few hotdogs. They are ready to eat within minutes. To put it quite frankly (pun intended), grilled hotdogs are one of my favorite go-to meals to feed a summer crowd. They are easy to make and all I need to have on hand besides the hotdogs of course are our favorite hotdog toppings and buns.
We have lived in Utah for a little more than 3 years now. One thing I have noticed about the people here is that they love to invent their own condiments. They put their unique spin on everything from ketchup to mayo to barbeque sauce.
One of the best Utah creations is a sweet and tangy hotdog sauce recipe. People drive from miles around to eat at the hotdog stand that was the first to serve its hotdogs topped with a homemade sauce. The honey-and-sugar-sweetened hotdog sauce is delicious and just a little bit sticky.

TIP: Use a knife to score your hotdogs before you grill them up – somehow it makes everything taste even better!
I grilled up Bar-S brand Classic Franks and served them with the delicious and sweet hotdog sauce. Other popular Bar-S frank varieties are Classic Jumbo, Bun Length and Cheese Jumbo. All are perfect for grilling and their lower price means I can feed my family for less. Find more information on Bar-S products
Sweet and Sticky Hotdog Sauce Recipe
- ¾ cup ketchup
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
How to Make: Add all ingredients to a saucepan and heat on medium until almost boiling. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Serve on top of grilled hotdogs.
Don’t be shy – use LOTS of sauce on top of your hotdog! We love to put a dill pickle spear right alongside the hotdog in the bun. Other hotdog toppings to serve include chopped onions, jalapenos, banana peppers, sauerkraut and mustard.
If you are expecting a crowd, you’ll probably want to make at a double batch of this special hotdog sauce. Enjoy!
