Savory Coney Island Sauce & a Fun Kickoff Party
This post is sponsored by Kayem. All views expressed are that of our own. #KayemKickoff
This past Sunday we had a few family members and friends over to watch the Pat’s game. The game started at 1 pm so it was the perfect time to enjoy some savory foods. The folks at Kayem are the official Frank and Sausage of the New England Patriots! They sent us some of their amazing products to help us throw the ultimate Kayem Kickoff for our guests and boy was it a treat!
Kayem generously sent us some of their Franks, Minis, Fenway Sausages, Fire Grilled Angus Beef Patties, and some great swag bags for friends! Everyone especially loved the mini Kayem Frank stress toy! I of course LOVED all the food goodies because Kayem is actually the ONLY hot dog brand I will eat. I LOVE their hot dogs and really enjoy that the possibilities of “dressing” them up are almost endless!
For our party I served the following finger foods:
- Chips & Dip
- Large Pigs in the Blanket (Crescent Roll Wrapped Hot Dogs)
- Sweet & Savory Bacon Wrapped Mini Dogs with Brown Sugar
- Kayem Fire Grilled Angus Beef Cheeseburgers
- Fenway Italian Sausage
- Savory Coney Island Sauce (meat sauce)
- Grilled/Steamed Hot Dogs with all the traditional fixings
- Patriotic Cupcakes
Everyone LOVED the food and especially enjoyed the football dogs I made. To make these game day dogs I simply dressed steamed Kayem Frankfurters up with a bun and dollop of Savory Coney Island Sauce. I then took white onion straws and tried mimicked the stitching on a football. They turned out not only tasty but super cute and fitting for the game!
Want to make this Savory Coney Island Sauce? Here is what you will need:
- 2 lbs of hamburger
- 1 large white onion diced finely
- 1 tsp Celery seed
- 1/2 tsp of onion powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1/2 cup yellow mustard
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
Pan fry your hamburger meat and onion until full cooked; drain excess fat drippings
Set a crock pot to low and put the meat mixture in there along with all the spices, and sauces. Cook on low for at least 2 hours. You can even make this a day before to really let the flavors meld and soak in.
This sauce is NOT a chili dog sauce and is really more savory and slightly sweet. It complements onions, and additional mustard on a dog.
Everyone loved this “everything but the kitchen sink” meat sauce and said it reminded them of a sloppy Joe sauce minus the BBQ flavor. It really was a touchdown of a party! Oh, and the best part? The Patriots won! WOOT!!
All good parties need a sweet to finish up the fun so these Patriotic cupcakes won!
I just love the red, white, and blue buttercream and the final football touches!
