“This recipe was one shared by our gourmet foods teacher. It looked good when she prepared it in class, but I didn't try it. Wish now I had. I posted it here because I didn't want to lose it and will probably make it the next time I break down and buy hot dogs.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 beef hot dogs (the regular kind is alright too, but I can't eat the pork ones due to digestive difficulties)
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 8 buns
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 (4 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
  • 1 (2 1/4 ounce) envelope tomato soup mix
  • 12 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • parmesan cheese, if desired


  1. Score frankfurters diagonally.
  2. Mix marinade ingredients and heat in a skillet, stirring constantly, until it boils. Remove from heat and add frankfurters. Let stand, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Remove frankfurters from marinade. Broil or grill 4 inches from heat for 7 to 10 minutes, turning frequently.
  4. While frankfurters cook, stir flour into marinade and reheat to boiling, stirring until thick.
  5. Serve in buns. Spoon marinade over frankfurters and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
