Hot Dogs

The Menu:
Grandma Roberts' Maple Glazed Apples and Hot Dogs

The Original Recipe:
Ok, I made Grandma Roberts' Maple Glazed Apples and Hot Dogs for lunch, posted by Astrid. I never made it so I didn't want to change it the first time. I halved everything because it was for me and the two kids. I needed to try it on them first to see if I would make it for everyone. I cut the hot dogs up and the apples, and I peeled them. It is a good lunch dish, imo. I felt like I wanted to add baked beans to it and definitely corn bread... or make a casserole, and add the corn bread ontop for a crust. It would be good that way, too! I could also see using green pepper and onion to it in casserole form, too.. It was just sweet and good! My picture is a bit blury, as we ate most of it before I thought to take one, so I had to get close, lol. If I change the recipe in the future, I will post what I did.
Grandma Roberts' Maple Glazed Apples and Hot Dogs
1 T butter

2 T prepared mustard

3/4 c maple syrup (real, Dark Amber or Grade B works best)

1 lb hot dogs

6 medium-sized tart apples, cored and sliced to make thick rings with skins left on

Melt butter in skillet. Stir in mustard and maple syrup. Make slashes in hot dogs and add them together with the apples, to the sauce. Cover and simmer over very low heat for 10-15 minutes.This is especially good with cornbread and baked beans.
