Onions On a Hot Dog Ideas

I love onions on hot dogs.
What I typically do ,Is
caramelize an onion/ garlic
At the end I add:
- a little ketchup
- splash of vinegar
- paprika
- dash of hot sauce
- S/P to taste

I was wondering if anyone had any other variations or suggestions I can try.

I was thinking up substituting BBQ sauce in place of the ketchup, or smoked paprika in place of the regular paprika.

Larry

I put this in condiments, since the onions kinda being used as a condiment

I like raw onions, ketchup, cheese slices, and sambal olek(chili paste).

I make a topping with lots of thinly sliced onions sauted until soft. I add a can of stewed tomatoes, a couple cloves of minced garlic and a small bottle of Crystal hot sauce. Simmer until thickened, being sure to mash up the tomatoes.

Ever' now and then, I like chow chow on my hot dogs.
Try as I might, I have not been able to locate my grandmother's recipe for chow chow.
Down at the local farmer's market, I can usually find homemade chow chow. The stuff in the stores just don't taste like my grandmother's.

Variations of onions?
You could try onion rings. Maybe putting them in the bottom of the bun would keep them in place better, or give them a cut and lay them in lengthwise. hmmm, that sounds kind of good. I think I'd like the texture.
I make a salad topping with onions and matchstick carrots sautéed with a splash of balsamic vinegar. That would probably go on a hot dog OK. You won't know until you try.
Honestly, my favorite way is just a sweet onion chopped. I don't put a lot of thought into my hot dogs so keep the toppings simple.

in the past ive also made a relish of finely chopped onions, raw cabbage, vinegar and salt , with swiss cheese melted on top. I think i saw if on tv once, sounded strange, but worked well.

In Denmark they put "rested løg" (toasted onion) on hot dogs. An onion is sliced very thin, think mandolin, then cut a bit, into not-too-long pieces. Sprinkle with flour, then shake off excess flour. Fry in neutral oil at 130-150 C (266 - 302 F) until crisp.

Thanks for asking. I had forgotten about the toasted onion and I really like them.

Toasted onion sounds a lot like what we call onion rings, only they cut it before frying instead of after like I suggested.
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.
