copy cat Dirty John's Hot Dogs (bunless of course)

When I lived in upstate NY state, there was a place called Dirty John's Hot Dogs. They were obviously famous for their hot dogs. Long thin hot dogs, in a bun, served on a plate with a meat sauce, topped with onions and mustard. DELICIOUS!!

So, one day in PA (no longer there - in NC now!), I thought that the internet had to have a recipe for this amazing meat sauce.... and I was right!! However, I always have to change it up a bit to suit my tastes. And it is a winner, my husband loves it!

1lb Hamburger
1tsp Nutmeg
2.5tsp Onion Powder
2.5tsp Curry Powder
2.5tsp Chili Powder
1tsp Garlic Salt
1.5c water
Salt & Pepper to taste

Brown hamburger; add remaining ingredients. Simmer about 1 hr (do not let water boil away... add more if necessary). Put in blender to grind (I didn’t do this today). Serve over hot dogs with onions & mustard. Enjoy!!
