Old Fashioned Luncheonette Hot Dog

15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
5 ingredients
4 servings
As a child in the 60's and 70's, my Mom would treat us to a hot dog at the local department store back in the day when they had a Luncheteria. She watched the simple way they made them so we could enjoy them at home. They became a staple for our family as a Saturday night dinner. I know some friends of mine raised their eyebrows at the buttering of a bun, but that's how the luncheonette ladies made them and they tasted so good and my friends agreed.I just used the serving number of 8 to account for 4 servings of two hot dogs apiece, as you can't just have one! Always try to use the best quality hot dogs as you can.
