Grandpa’s Classic Coney Sauce

by 247tasty

This is the classic coney sauce, not chili! I’ve been looking for this recipe for a long time, and finally found the perfect Coney recipe that everyone is craving especially during game nights. This is absolutely amazing, easy to put together, and truly delightful.

One day, a friend messaged me and asked if I can host the biggest game night we’ve had, and of course, I said yes. So, like many other game nights, I almost settled for the usual. Then, my husband suggested why not serve a Coney instead of chili dogs? Then, I remembered we were just talking about the classic coney sauce we’ve had years before and why I never tied to make it. I didn’t want to disappoint so I checked for the recipe online and found this. Glad I did because this is easy to follow, although, I modified it a bit (added a little bit of ketchup and Worcestershire) it is still is amazing. Everyone enjoyed it, complimented my classic coney sauce, and even asked for the recipe! This truly is a great replacement for chili dogs, and my new recipe to go to.
