These dogs are made with beer and brown sugar, but are always a big hit with our friends and family. They should simmer on the stove for at least 60 minutes. We usually put them in a slow cooker when serving to keep them hot. Use toothpicks to spear these little bit-sized delights.

I've made this a couple times for gatherings and I never have any left over. I think cut up hot dogs work better than cocktail weiners because they absorb more of the sauce since they don't have the casing to go through. Read More

I normally follow the recipes to a T the first time I make them but this time I added a few things to spice it up a bit. I also added a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce. I used a dark stout and added chopped onion fresh minced garlic and some low sodium soy sauce. The result was DELICIOUS! I'll be serving this at the next Superbowl party. Read More

I served this to my Bunko group. I really liked them a lot and two people commented they really liked them..however I still had over half left at the end of the night. I used Ballpark as that is the hot dogs my family likes but they really plumped up so had to double the sauce. I might make these again but I'll use regular size dogs. Read More

These were actually a huge hit with our friends. We did follow others suggestions and thickened the sauce with some corn starch at the end. I might even next time pop them in the oven for a few minutes to carmelize some of the sauce. Will definately make this again. Read More

So yummy and so easy to make! These drunken dogs were such a hit that they have been requested over and over again. I did add a bit of asian sauce to give it an extra layer of flavor and it made the sauce a bit thicker! Excellent recipe! Read More

I made these right before the first game of the World Series while we were waiting for pizza delivery. Needless to say they were a hit! Never before have I eaten hot dogs and gone back for more... Plus everyone thought I was some kind of extraordinary cook because they were so delicious! Three ingredients baby! Read More
