Author Notes

Chili dogs are a classic for sure, but the sweet/savory combo of sloppy joes has been woefully neglected. And don’t skip the pickle here, the delicious crunch is a delight. —StephaniePowell

What You'll Need
  • half large white onion, diced
  • 1 whole bell pepper, diced (use sweeter like red or yellow pepper)
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 tablespoon neutral oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 12 ounces chili sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 S.Rosen's Brioche Hot Dog Bun
  • 1 Vienna beef hot dog
  • 1 pickle spear, cut in half lengthwise
  • shredded cheese (we used cheddar but pepper jack is great if you want to add a kick)
  1. Prepare the Sloppy Joe first. With one Tbsp. of oil, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat. Once browned, add the white onion and bell pepper, then cover and cook for 5-6 minutes. Remove cover and add diced garlic, stir until fragrant, then add Worcestershire sauce and stir again. At this point add the chili sauce and brown sugar. Lower to medium-low heat and cook covered for 5 minutes until the mixture darkens. Add salt if needed, then set aside.
  2. To assemble: Place cooked hot dog in bun, top with sloppy joe mix, then add the pickle spear and shredded cheddar cheese.
