Coney Mommas

"Coney dogs (aka Coney Island hot dogs or Coneys) are all beef hot dogs topped with all-beef chili, diced yellow onion and yellow mustard. Originating in Detroit, Michigan, and popular in the “heartland” states, these sandwiches scream summer is here! The secret to a great Coney is in the chili topping, and Hoosier Momma’s Bloody Mary Maker makes a delicious Coney sauce with an Indiana twist."

Yields: 2 cups of Coney sauce


1 pound ground beef

4 tablespoons minced yellow onion

3 cups Hoosier Momma Bloody Mary Maker

1/2 cup dill pickle relish

3 tablespoons sugar

2 teaspoons Coleman’s dry mustard

3 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce

Place a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, and add the beef and onions. 

Cook, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until the beef is no longer pink. Use a wooden spoon or potato masher to break the meat up into small pieces.

Add the rest of the ingredients, stir to blend, and simmer on low heat for 1 hour or until the mixture is thick. Use immediately to top hot dogs, or freeze for future use.

Note: You can freeze this sauce in ice cube trays to make “Coney Cubes.” When the urge for a Coney strikes, take a few cubes, thaw them out to top your hot dog, and enjoy!
