French Connection Hot Dogs

These French Connection hot dogs have quickly become a favorite in our household. We almost always have everything to make them on hand, so they make for a great quick lunch. We love the crunch from the fried onions, the creamy cheese, and the spicy BBQ sauce. These dogs disappear fast.

French Connection Hot DogsAlthough a sweet or smoky BBQ sauce would work just fine on these dogs, we prefer a spicier version. I used (and used liberally) some Bayou BBQ sauce from Frog Bone. It’s a nice thin sauce with great flavor and a little kick.

The idea for French Connection dogs came from the menu from The Dogfather Truck, a food truck from Worcester, Massachusetts.

Also try my French onion dogs..They’re magnifique!
