Hi Roberta,

I cannot find any mention at all of a restaurant or even a hot dog stand in Auburn, New York named "Kathrine's" or "Katherine's" or "Kathryn's." Can you provide more information? What street was it on? Could it have had another name? Could it have been in another town?


Timm sent the below recipes in response to this request: 3-14-2019

I have some more such recipes here: Hot Dogs & Chili Dogs

However, none of these recipes are from Auburn, New York or Cayuga County, New York, or from a place called Kathrine's.

Hey Phaed:

Here are two hot dog sauce recipes that may help.     

Timm in Oregon

Texas Hot Wiener Sauce
Ulster County New York Style


4 hot dogs, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup cornstarch
8 cups water, divided
1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon white pepper, freshly ground
1 pinch black pepper, freshly ground or to taste


Grind the hot dogs into a chunky paste in a food processor and place into a large saucepan. 
Mix the cornstarch with 1 cup water in a small bowl and set aside. Pour 7 more cups water 
over the hot dogs. Stir in the vinegar, paprika, chili powder, sea salt, red pepper flakes, 
oregano, onion powder, cinnamon, white pepper, and black pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer 
over low heat until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Gradually stir in the 
reserved cornstarch mixture and simmer for 15 more minutes. Adjust the salt and black pepper 
to taste. Sauce will be thinner than chili and will thicken as it cools.

Note: Just remember the buns need to be steamed. You can do this in the microwave for 30 seconds. 
Without the steamed buns it's not the same, and it's better to boil the hot dogs and not grill them.
Original Texas Hots' Hot Dog Sauce


2 medium size onions, peeled and finely chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
2 2/3 teaspoon chili powder
1-1/3 teaspoon paprika
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2/3 teaspoon cloves
2-2/3 teaspoon ground cumin
2/3 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper, freshly ground
1 3/4 teaspoon plain salt
1/3 teaspoon cayenne pepper


In a four quart pan, cook the onions in a little salad oil until tender. Add ground beef and brown. 
Add 1-1/2 quarts water and simmer for one hour. Add the remaining ingredients. And cook 1/2 hour 
longer. Thicken with cornstarch or flour to desired consistency.

Note: Mix the cornstarch or flour with water to a paste. The sauce can be frozen in an ice cube tray. 
One cube is enough for one hot dog. After frozen, take out of tray and store cubes in freezer bag.
