Coney Island Sauce Wisconsin Style

Coney Island Sauce Wisconsin Style is delicious! The longer the sauce cooks, the better it gets. The darker the beer, the richer in flavor the sauce will be. We call this a “Wisconsin Coney” because of the addition of secret stadium sauce and beer to the sauce recipe. Plus, each all-beef hot dog is topped with a handful of shredded sharp cheddar cheese and French’s French fried onions.

What is Secret Stadium Sauce?

What is Secret Stadium Sauce? Secret Stadium Sauce is a popular condiment at Miller Park in Milwaukee WI home of the Milwaukee Brewers. It’s served with hot dogs and brats at Miller Park. The dogs and brats are actually dipped into the secret stadium sauce and the sauce is served on the side. The sauce can also be found alongside those large plastic ketchup and mustard pump thingy things on the “mini” condiment stations.

Hot Dogs in a Crock Pot

Here is a fun way to serve Coney Island Sauce and Hot Dogs. Heat Coney Island sauce in a crock-pot set on low. In a second crock-pot set on high, heat a package or two of hot dogs. Serve buns, condiments and any other hot dog “toppers” on the side. This is a great self serve way to serve “dogs” for birthday parties, graduation parties, baseball games or while tail-gating before baseball games or football games.
