Hot Dogs with Spicy Sauce and Grilled Onions

Crazy Good Hot Dogs

I used one of my favorite hot sauces, Louisiana Hot Sauce, to kick these hot dogs with spicy sauce and grilled onions up a bit. Louisiana hot sauce has some heat and spice, but it isn’t overpowering at all. And it’s not overly vinegary like some hot sauces. For the BBQ sauce I used a spicy version for a nice extra kick. You could go light on both and still have a great hot dog.
