I've got half a mind to pick up some frozen onion rings and give this a try. I've got the hot dogs and buns.
I would say that toasted onions are first cousin to onion rings. They are supposed to be completely crispy, with no soft inside, because they are much thinner.

Most Danes don't bother making them. They are cheap and available in any grocery store, with no added preservatives, (except salt, but not enough to preserve them). BTW, they are shelf stable, so I'm thinking of making a big batch to have them handy. I have read that they aren't shelf stable if you don't add the flour.

Thanks for asking. I had forgotten about the toasted onion and I really like them.
Oops, spelling mistake. That should be "ristede løg".

I know there is French's French fried onions... I used to crush those up and use them as a walleye breading, adhering with mayonnaise, sometimes.

I just looked them up. Looks like the same thing, but they add dextrose. Now that I think about it, I think my mum used to buy those.

Yeah, I'm sure it's better to make your own, just not for a couple hot dogs, lol.

This is actually one of those cases where I think store bought is fine. It's just a little dextrose (why is it there?).

I'm not going to buy them, but that's because of the soy oil.

DA likes to split the hot dogs one half the way through it, stuff the cheddar cheese in it lengthwise, wrap it with the partially cooked bacon, (when it is soft) and hold the things together with the toothpicks.
We put these under the broiler on high until the bacon begins to crisp and the cheese begins to melt and the top of it is crispy but not so burnt.
Then we put the raw chopped red onion on the the top with the ketchup, mustard, dill relish, and the small bit of sauerkraut in the bun.
One could also add chili to the hotdog.

Your friend,
