Onion Relish and Hot Dogs

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Now that football season is upon us, I've been working on no-hassle meals, so that I can watch my game in peace. Today's game was by no means peaceful. My Seahawks looked miserable, they lost the game and they lost their quarterback. On the up side, the Huskies beat USC. I'll say it again because it makes me happy. THE HUSKIES BEAT USC!!!

I had football on my schedule until 4:30. Then I started dinner armed with a batch of Nacho Sauce, a package of of Field Roast sausages and a new Rice-A-Roni recipe. I added this onion relish to the mix. This was so good piled on a hot dog with lots of mustard and nacho sauce. It was a bit sweet, a bit spicy, a bit sweet and a bit tart. It was perfect football food.

Onion Relish

Onion Relish
2 tbs vegetable oil
1 tsp mustard seed
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 large sweet onion, halved & sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs white wine vinegar

Heat the oil in a saute pan set to medium. Add the mustard seed and cook just until they begin to sizzle. Add the onion and red pepper flakes and saute until they are brown and fully carmelized. Add the garlic and saute until aromatic. Stir in the brown sugar. Then stir in the white wine vinegar and cook until it has evaporated. Remove from heat and add as a topping to a hot dog, burger, pizza, etc.

  2. I'll have to try that one, it sounds really good!

    I've been curious about the Field Roast products but can't get them around here.

  4. I was at that game with the Niners and had to watch Hasselback go down, I felt so bad for him! You could tell he was trying so hard just to get off the field on his own. All the Niners fans (I consider myself an adopted Niners fan) were booing and yelling at him and it was just unpleasant to be around. Yeah, we're football fans, but he's just a guy having to go through a whole lot of pain!

    Regardless, the onion relish sounds great!
