Aloha Hot Dog

Yield: 8 servings

We first ran across this hot dog at a Saucy Dogs, a restaurant in Hilo, Hawaii.  Great restaurant; strongly recommend you visit.

They were so good that we decided to make them ourselves.  It's not quite as good as the original, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than a flight to Hawaii for the real deal.
