I did this on the stove top to make them quicker. Still very tasty.

These were very tasty. Bit of a bite but not too hot. Topped with onions and cheese. Only needed to keep in slow cooker 3-1/2 hours and it was ready. Thank you for a new way to do hot dogs.

This is such a fun, family-friendly recipe! It's great for summer, as its quick, easy, and doesn't heat up the whole house.

This was a simple, but very tasty sauce. My family loved it! I liked that it wasn't too bland, but wasn't too spicy, either. If my kids like it, you know it's a keeper! :)

To me this was very average and even though it wasn't tons of trouble to make, it was too much trouble condidering what it is.

5 Star rating from my Kitchen. This was most enjoyable. Its got a little Bark to it. Just enough to enjoy * I had no tomato sauce so I used tomato paste and water. I'd hands down make this one again. Next time I will be sure to have all of the trimmings. Mine only simmered for about 45 minutes. I down sized it for just 2.JanieTaste of Home Volunteer Field Editor*

I made this for the first time for dinner. I mixed the sauce ingredients together, added the hot dogs, and let it sit all morning in a covered bowl in the refrigerator. When I came home for lunch, I put the hot dogs in the crockpot and covered with the sauce, then cooked on low for 4 1/2 hours. I used the good suggestions of other posters - I did not add the water, and I did stir in a bit of brown sugar. Very good! Even DH enjoyed this meal. He always says NEVER to cook hot dogs in a crockpot. The sauce, for him, made a wonderful difference.

Being the author of this recipe, I'm delighted to know so many people are enjoying it. I'm also glad to know that many of you have changed it to make it your own. Recipes should be versatile. Some people didn't like the extra liquid, but in Kalamazoo there is a Coney Island that is over a hundred years old and I based my recipe on theirs. The Coney sauce is served with a slotted spoon. I just wanted something similar to serve at home. Thank you for all the wonderful feedback! Michele Harris, Vicksburg, MI
