Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs
1/4 cup butter
1 sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 (4 ounce) package cream cheese
4 hot dogs, or your favorite sausages
4 hot dog buns
Preheat grill or grill pan for medium-high heat.
Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions, and cook slowly until the onions have softened and turned deep brown, about 15 minutes. Warm the cream cheese over low heat in a small skillet until very soft.
Grill hot dogs until well browned. Lightly grill hot dog buns on both sides.
To assemble cheese dogs, spread warm cream cheese on toasted hot dog bun, add hot dog or sausage, top with onions, mustard and sauerkraut, if desired.
