Since it is throw back Thursday I thought I would share a 1966 and 67 memory. When I lived in
Milwaukee on the near South side, there was a little dive
called Coney Island. Living on a very limited budget and it being
very near where I worked as a VISTA volunteer,
I visited it often and always ordered the Coney dogs.
I saw this recipe and had to save it for the memory and for future use. It is super simple and a wonderful memory. You can’t beat that.
1 ¼ lbs. hamburger
1 large onion
½ cup sugar
½ cup chili powder
½ cup ketchup
1 ½ cup water
Chop your onion in a food processor. Brown hamburger and onion until done. Drain well and place back in the skillet. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Simmer 1 hour, stirring from time to time. You can also freeze it for later use.
Steam your hot dogs. I use 100% beef. Brown your buns a bit. Pile lots of chili on top of your hot dog. What a meal. What great memories.
Make some memories today and make it a great day. Be happy and may God bless you and yours.
